    What breweries release the most # of brews for their size?

    The ones that comes to mind for me as a Floridian are Cigar City and Funky Buddha. Cigar City probably bottles/cans more than 20 different brews each year and maybe another couple dozen that hit draft distro - I think I'm underestimating them. Funky Buddha seems to have put out around 40 different brews in the last year using a 3.5 barrel system.

    I imagine someone will say DFH, but they are actually relatively quite large and they don't seem to put out too much variety on draft.

    I am sure lots of areas local to awesome breweries will have lots of different stuff specific to draft/keg. Bottled wise I would say sam adams but they are huge.

    Opposite of thread title : The Alchemist (in the packaging brewery up to now anyway)

    I would like to see more breweries give up the jack of all styles type model and concetrate on what they do best. Would cut down on the plethora of mediocre brands in craft beer today.

    Dark Horse had 50 different beers available at the summer beer fest in '12.
    At the fall festival I believe Greenbush had 30+ and they are tiny.
