    Flying Jenny is their best offering IMO...my knock against Leaning Chimney is that it is a bit too bold flavor-wise for me to drink it all night long...I have one then move onto something else. I've got big hopes for Foolproof...

    Out in Central/Eastern Long Island, my vote is for

    Blue Point Hoptical Illusion or Oatmeal Stout.


    I haven't had enough Southhampton Publick or Long Ireland to include them but they have some nice seasonals.

    Chicago here.

    Anything from Revolution (my favorite is their Eugene Porter) and Half Acre (favorite is their Daisy Cutter Pale Ale.) I'm not sure how well distributed outside IL they are, but I can get them here just about everywhere.

    SEPA:
    Troegs
    Victory
    Yards
    DFH
    Sly Fox
    Weyerbacher

    Those are the biggest 'local' brewers. We also get probably the best distro in the country so you could find just about anything.
