    gotta have them all right? Some of those are no doubt more easier to acquire than others and can vary to style. Much of what has already been mentioned have been good starting points, but that list has many others.

    I found RJ Rockers Peachy King to be much "peachier" than Son of a Peach

    In addition to the afforementioned greats - pech n brett, fuzzy, fantasia - I'd throw in Rum Barrel aged La Tache with White Peaches. Yeah, there were only 200 some bottles of it, so it's not going to be easy to get, but it was pretty fabulous.

    I was pretty impressed with block 15 Fuzzy Wuzzy last night, but I think my nod goes to Peche n Brett

    I've only had two peach beers to date and I liked them both. DFH Festina Peche is a bit tart, but oh, so good! And Lindemans Peche is good, but Very sweet, like a desert beer or cider.

    Odell Tree Shaker is fine. Also blends very well with an All Day IPA...makes it strech all day/nite long...

    R&D this year is peach something. Haven't heard exactly what, but they have given that much of a hint on the hard hat tours.

    I liked it too. I thought it was better than the rating here.

    I'll second Peaches and Cream, but it is a bit syrupy and cloying.

    Freetail Peche'cus is pretty dang awesome.

    Jester King just put local fresh peaches into Das Uberkind to referment. So, that will most likely be great.

    Bought a 12 of this last summer, and couldn't drink a single beer out of the box. Every beer was extremely carbonated and would completely "fix" out of the bottle. It wouldn't stop. At first, I thought it could be because the bottle was shaken or something? I let it sit for a few days, and got the same results. Drained poured the entire 12. Really disappointing because I was traveling through SC and was excited to try it.

    Years ago I had some Cask Humidor that was treated with Peach. To this day it is still the best thing I have had from them.

    As far as readily available beers go, it's hard to pass up a Maggie's Peach Farmhouse Saison from Terrapin when I see it on draft.

    The Tree Shaker from Odell last year was very good as well.

    I went to the DFH brewery last Fourth of July, for the first time ever going there, and luckily ran into Sam Calagione coming in with a crate of bottles. He gave a speech at the bar about trying out the first ever "Vintage Thursdays," and had a few beers they had been sitting on for a really long time. One of the bottles was an '04 Festina Lente. Needless to say, it was one of the coolest beer experiences I've ever had, and was a damn good/DAMN sour beer.

    If anyone comes to Arizona and wants a good refresher for the desert heat, Four Peaks Peach Ale is a very solid option

    I had Scaldis Peche Mel on draft last night at my favorite Belgian restaurant last night. Blew me away! Wife even liked it. 8.5% of Belgian peachy goodness.

    +1 here for Festina PĂȘche, though I'll also add Bar Harbor Brewing (before they sold out to Atlantic Brewing) used to make "Bar Harbor Peach Ale", which (combined with Thunder Hole Ale & Cadillac Mtn. Stout) was one of my gateway craft beers.
    I *seriously* wish they would bring that beer out of retirement!
