    Phlux was a one time only brew, far from year round.

    Red Brick Porter is now year round, replacing their seasonal Oatmeal Porter, which began life as the Winter brew. 4pks only.

    For bombers, nearly all Jailhouses's beers (Breakout, Mugshot, Slammer, Misdemeanor) are year round. Nothing else in bomber format is a year round offering in GA.

    Also, as mentioned, both Wild Heaven's are year round and 4pks, and O'Dempsey's Your Black Heart is too, and is a great RIS.

    Louisiana is a no-brainer:

    1. NOLA Hopitoulas tall-boy cans 4-pack
    2. Parish Grand Reserve barleywine bomber

    As far as year-round bombers go, I loves me some Weyerbacher Double Simcoe...that stuff is amazing. I don't think PA has too many year-round 4-packs...Troegs Mad Elf is seasonal...ah, almost forgot about the Weyerbacher Quad! Not totally positive it's year-round, but that's my answer anyways. Cheers n such.

    4-pack - I know it's seasonal, but I can usually find Brooklyn BCS for at least ten months a year. That or He'Brew Lenny's R.I.P.A which is always fantastic and very under-rated.
    Bomber - Cortland BBA 410 Flight Level Barleywine, ST Choklat, ST BBA Backburner, or anything from Ommegang.

    I' with wagenvolks on the Endeavour for the bomber.
    As for the 4-pack, Real Ale Sisyphus was a really tasty barleywine.

    hard to argue with either one of those. I'd maybe throw yeti in there. For bomber I'd go with Barrel aged Old Ruffian... That one was just awesome.

    Massachusetts - tough to disagree with hoponius 4 pack.

    Not a bomber, but I'd put JA Kiwi Rising as best non-12 oz beer from MA.

    4pk- either Old Rasputin or La Fin Du Monde depending on what I'm in the mood for

    Bomber- Old Viscosity or Ruination (again, depends on mood)

    MI here... Without being a seasonal, both are very difficult. Most are seasonals. OH (I live just north of the boarder) - Have to agree with the masses. Head Hunter and BORIS. Hoppin Frog definately dominates the bomber market. Brew Kettle Tunguska I also enjoy, but not really sure if that is a seasonal... Doesnt matter cause BORIS, or DORIS blow it out of the water. Side note: the BA Frosted Frog (I think that was the official name - their Christmas Ale bomber) was one of the best Christmas brews I had this year. Fantastic!
