    Call me Joe 6-pack, but that's the way I like to buy my beer. I think a 6-pack that's available year-round is a good representation of an area's beer scene. I'll include 4-packs of pints, since they're close to being the same.
    For me, in Wisconsin, I think I'll go with New Glarus Moon Man. I could be talked out of that, however. Maybe Sprecher Heffe Weisse and Central Waters Satin Solstice as honorable mentions.

    Can I go 4-pk and say Old Raspy?

    If not, I'm going with Stone IPA.

    It might be Troegs Perpetual IPA. Although Yards Brawler holds a special place in my heart.

    Not too much in terms of home grown six packs in NJ. Especially year rounds. I guess it's either River Horse's Double Wit or Flying Fish's Exit 16.

    Troegs Perpetual IPA is a great pick, but I am gonna say Sly Fox Rt. 113 IPA.

    Gotta agree. I want to say Hopponius Union but its a 4. Ipswich Oatmeal Stout has got to be one of the best tho. Mayflower Oatmeal Stout is almost as good.

    Just to warn you all, your opinion does not count unless you specify what state you live in ;)

    Lakefront IPA - always tasty, especially so when the weather is warm.

    In Florida, definitely Jai-Alai.

    In New York, I haven't found it yet.

    My states:

    Michigan: tie for me with Reds Rye, Two Hearted, Kalamazoo Stout, Shorts Huma, and GL Burning River
    Florida: Jai Alai

    The dreamer above that said Puppy's Breath would be right for Florida if it were 6-packs!

    Ohio - White Rajah or Headhunter (4 pk)...so I guess White Rajah to be technically correct.

    If it has to be six, then it would be Indeed Day Tripper here in Minnesota. Cut it down to four tall-boys and it's hands down Abrasive!

    In Washington (state) - Obsidian Stout. Black Butte Porter not far behind.

    These are definitely good choices, but I believe the OP said From Your State. Obsidian and Black Butte can be found in my fridge pretty frequently, but they're brewed in Oregon. You and I both live in Washington, so my vote goes to Fremonts Universal Pale Ale.

    Cigar City Tocobaga...

    Not sure why Puppy's Breath is here - fairly sure that is draft only as I've never seen it outside the brewpub. Probably seasonal too as the pub isn't offering it right now.
