    Colorado breweries.

    Crooked Stave (Denver) - About to blow up big-time and be up there with Bruery and Hill Farmstead in demand.
    Dry Dock (Aurora) - Apricot Ale and Bligh's are two of the best Colorado beers. New facility will help expand production and distribution.
    Upslope (Boulder) - Their pumpkin ale gets picked off as soon as it hits the stores and their christmas ale was no slouch eitherr.
    Trinity (Colorado Springs) - Brett/Wild/Saison specialist keeps churning out rare beers. Furthering the boundaries of beer adjuncts. Currently expanding with a new barrel room.
    Funkwerks (Fort Collins) - You win some GABF medals and demand is bound to keep increasing.
    Crabtree (Greeley) - with new facility and new barrel manager, expect good things from this slept-on brewery.

    and Avery, O'Dell, New Belgium, Oskar Blues, Ska etc. keep doing their thing with their seasonal/rares.

    If anybody makes it to New York, mainly Long Island and Brooklyn, look for beer by Barrier Brewing Co. Only find them in bars on tap. These guys make a great product. They were hit in sandy but that hasn't stopped them, up and brewing again! A real treat, these guys will be going places in years to come. I'm at the brewery every weekend (I live about 5 minutes away from them) filling multiple growlers for the upcoming week

    In Western PA, I'll be scoping Draai Laag and Helltown. And, hopefully, Full Pint will keep turning it up.

    Tried a few different bottles when I was in town over the holidays. They were all outstanding.

    Rushing Duck from the Catskills in NY. They are less than a year old and pretty local still, but have created quite a bit of buzz with their DIPA, War Elephant, and now an Imperial Stout. Here's looking forward to many great things to come!

    FFF. I bet they make 20 one-time beers this year. And they're certain to raise prices to a ludicrous level.

    Yay! I live in Pensacola, and obviously I am a big supporter of PBB. Glad to see that they are getting the well deserved recognition throughout the state.

    Neshaminy Creek Brewing(Croydon, PA) http://neshaminycreekbrewing.com/
    is making some excellent brews right now, and expect to begin bottling in early 2013.
    Look for them to make some waves at this year's Philly Beer Week in June for sure.

    I wasn't able to grab the Anniversary, however, I plan on swinging through Richmond this week to grab some of their Sidamo coffee stout. Should be deliecious as well.

    Homer pick - Societe Brewing in San Diego. They already make great IPAs and an excellent Stout, and their sour program sounds really promising.

    Night Shift. Their barrel society is going to either put them on the map or destroy their rep. Either way, definitely somebody to watch.

    I expect Jack's Abby to show up more on the national radar in 2013. But if you're reading this and don't know them by now, you're already way behind the 8-ball...

    I am hoping the Firestone Wild series is a hit and pretty easy to come by.
