    Trillium Fort Point Pale Ale. If I could pick from Greater Boston, I'd go with Night Shift Ever Weisse.

    Thanks Roxie! I've been pretty candid about the problems we dealt with for a while, but we have been working very hard to get our issues ironed out. It is good to hear that the hard work is being noticed!

    Of year round, or near year round beers:
    Saint Arnold Boiler Room
    Karbach Weisse Versa
    Lone Pint Yellow Rose (I guess I can count Magnolia as Houston)

    Seasonals and one offs
    Karbach Bourbon Barrel Aged Hellfighter
    Saint Arnold Bishops Barrel 5 (DR 4 Wee Heavy aged in Bourbon Barrels)

    Not so local to Houston, but some of my favorites in Texas
    Live Oak Hefe
    512 Pecan Porter
    Austin Beer Works Pearl Snap
    Freetail Peche'cus

    Lots more...I truly think Texas has a lot of great breweries, and I always try not to be a homer.

    Right now I live 20 minutes from the FW brewery, so I'd say parabola. I am literally guaranteed to find parabola whenever I want too. Good thing (and bad for my wallet) it's my favorite beer!

    We've got a little brewery called 515 Brewing in Des Moines, that makes an OJ IPA that's pretty amazing, by my standards. They don't bottle/can anything, or really distribute it either, so, I guess this is pretty useless info unless you happen to find yourself in Des Moines.

    I feel fortunate. Let's go with:
    Surly (4.5 miles away) - Cacau Bender (year round in the Twin Cities, but only on draft)
    Steel Toe (6 miles away) - Size 4 (great session IPA) and Before the Dawn (limited brewery only release)
    Indeed (4 miles away) - Midnight Ryder (Black IPA year round) and Rum King (very limited)

    Minneapolis is happily awash in great brews, so mine changes all the time, but right now I dig Wild Brunette from Barley John's quite a bit.
