    4pk - hmm, we dont have too much in the way of yearly 4packs. Maybe Aviator Devil's Tramping Ground?
    I'm sure I'm overlooking something great..

    22oz - Foothills Seeing Double IPA

    All of CCB's 4 packs and 750s are released only once to a few times a year. :(

    I 2nd the Siberian Night, my runner up would be Black Rat Russian Imperial Stout from Cellar Rats. Haven't had enough bombers to declare a clear favorite but I gotta hand it to Hoppin' Frog, in this area they are the KING of bombers as it's the only way they are available. Though I'm sure the Fatheads & Brew Kettle fans will throw these 2 out there as well.

    This is only available in the winter. I am struggling to come up with ANY year round 4pk in WI.

    Some of Capital brewery 4pk Dopplebocks sit on the shelves year round as do the Big Eddy 4pk beers from Lienenkugels, but they are not technically year round.

    There are no notable year-round 4pks that I can think of available in WI. However, serendipity is the clear winner for me as far as large bottles go (technically 750mL but whatever)

    Unless I'm mistaken, I don't think that there are any year-round 4 packs or year round bombers in Georgia. Unless Red Brick's Porter is year round, there's nothing by Terrapin or Sweetwater that fits that bill.

    Re four-pack, I like the vote for Yeti, but I'll add Myrcenary into the fold, which I believe is year-round in four-pack format these days.

    As for bomber, La Folie is year-round according to this site, so I'll say La Folie (although, IIRC, I don't think New Belgium releases it year-round).

    See, I've never had La folie, and I think it's seasonal. Myrcenary is pretty great, but I like the style of IRS a little more than I like IIPA. But really, let's face it, Odell has been blowing shit up with myrcenary, lugene, mountain standard. Their seasonals are amazing as well. Once you get into this top eschelon of beers it's extremely difficult to put one over the other for any other reason except personal taste. Honestly, I love peach porch lounger. But nobody else seems to. And it's a one time release. So I hoarded that shit up. And now I'm just rambling. Sorry.

    4 pack-- BCS isn't "year round" yet is it? ok, then Daisy Cutter cans
    bomber-- Sofie (if only because I cannot really think of many others-- Pipeworks has some good stuff, but I don't know what's going to be year round yet)

    Most 4 packs are seasonals or high gravity beers, so this thread really doesn't work. I know some states have breweries that have 4 pack cans year round, ie. in IL Half Acre. The title should read: what's the best year round 4 pack from your state, beer 1 or beer 2.

    Totally agree with you, but I'm the opposite because I like the IIPA more than the RIS style. I almost never drink RIS in the summer (although, to be honest, I drink very very few IIPA in the winter time).

    Buckeye's Hippie IPA is a pretty good year round but I think Hoppin Frog does too many good bombers to pick Hippie

    My bad...I can't read I guess.

    Year round is tougher...you usually can find Autumnal Fire year round, even though its a seasonal, as you mentioned.

    I will say that I've really been diving into the ipa style a lot lately though. This winterive been drinking way more (I)ipas than ever. Still love going back to the malty goodness though.

    I'd have to put B.A. B.O.R.I.S. as the best bomber, and probably B.A. Blackout as the best (and priciest) 4 pack.

    The pickings are pretty slim, but we do have Wild Heaven Ode to Mercy in 4 packs and Jailhouse Breakout Stout in bombers year round in Georgia.

    I forgot about those! Leave it to the small breweries to provide us some great options! Although I'm torn between Ode to Mercy and Invocation, I'd say that Breakout Stout is top-notch stuff.

    I didn't go w/a Great Lakes because the OP and thread is "Best YEAR round 4-pack" Great Lakes 4 packs are seasonal only. Believe me I wish Great Lakes seasonal stuff was available year 'round especially Blackout stout in any form. Here's hoping Big Black Smoke makes it's way to the bottling line in some fashion. Rye of the Tiger bottling in 2013!!
