    I agree wholeheartedly. Also just tried Flying Fish Exit 16. Pretty amazing stuff. They have been around for a while but have really upped their game lately with the Exit Series.

    Maine Brewing Company. If they want to expand quickly and are smart about it, the quality of their product sure allows for it.

    On the local level, Cape May Brewing from NJ puts out fantastic stuff. Only available on draft because of the demand for kegs atm. When they expand again and begin bottling, watch out NJ.

    And so goes the release of HandFarm. That's aside from the fact that the beer is incredible.

    I'm looking forward to seeing where Bull Falls Brewery, Wausau WI, is headed. They've started construction on a packaging facility. 6 packs of 16 oz cans.

    I think I am now the fourth to mention Odd Side Ales out of Grand Haven, Michigan. They start bottling in the spring and I have heard nothing but good things about their beer. Really well rated and very willing to experiment, with great results so far. For example, I'm really interested to know what an 'Albino Stout' is all about. If it were not an eight hour drive, round trip, I would be there tonight investigating that.

    They seem like the next Short's just waiting to happen.

    While in the area make sure you try Red Eye Brewing Co, great beer/stout.

    Lost Nation Brewing, Morrisville VT. Being launched by the guys who started the brewery at the Trapp Family Lodge. Great brewers unchained from the restrictions of traditional lagers.

    My vote is definitely for ODDSIDE. Citra is amazing as well as a bunch of other stuff they are doing. Can't wait for bottling this year.

    Sante Adairius Rustic Ales out of Santa Cruz really impressed me last year, and I can't wait to see what Tim can do with the new foeders! Also keeping an eye out for The Rare Barrel in Berkeley whenever the open this year.

    I used to live in Wausau. I've been to all of the breweries there. And had all of their year round beers and quite a few of their seasonal brews. My fav at Red Eye is Scarlett Seven.

    Intuition brewing in Jacksonville,FL and Westbrook in Charleston, SC. Both have been doing great things and the future is very bright.

    I didn't read the entire thread, but Solemn Oath in Naperville, IL makes some tasty brews, and they're quite creative.

    I look to stop in there in April. My girlfriend got me opening day tickets to Yankees/Sox and a week long NY vacation, so a stop there will definitely be in order.

    +1 for Intuition Ale Works. They are trying to settle some legal issues over a Duvel clone called Duuuuvaaaal but once settled they will can that and between it, Underdark & I-10 IPA, they'll have a nice array of quality distributed brews. I personally am eager to see what they can next. My vote is for Riverside Red and/or Truck Stop Stout.
