    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
