    Things have definitely stepped up in CT: Alchemist SOS, Troeg's, and a few others.

    Favorite is Crooked Stave - quality and variety

    May I ask my two CA brothers where in CA you're finding Bell's Two Hearted and Expedition Stout. I'm in NoCal and haven't seen these.

    Just started getting Santa Fe Brewing stuff here in KS. Haven't tried it yet but I've heard good things and I'm definitely looking forward to trying their offerings.

    It's honestly difficult for me to keep up with what's new or simply new to the area but that being said, is it Nebraska Brewing? That their name? Had an IPA from them that gave me pause.

    I work at a liquor store in So Cal, we just started carrying Bell a few weeks ago. We had a case of Two Hearted and it sold out in 3 days without any advertising. I tried their Oberon last night and it was pretty decent. If I'm here when our local rep for the company that distributes it come in I'll ask what he knows about Nor Cal for you.

    Modern Times just started showing up here in the Bay Area. The Fortunate Islands is a tropical tasting wheat pale ale. Absolutely delicious.

    Nothing crazy new, but have been digging many of the Ballast Point offerings.

    I would have far better answers if CA could get some love from Breakside, Surly, Odell, or Fathead. Hell, even Sixpoint gets to OR...that was a pleasant surprise on a recent journey North!

    We just started getting Prairie Artisan in NYC. Their Standard Saison was the best I've had to date. Also Al's Pizza Boy is available here at a few places albeit a high markup.

    MetaModern by Oasis in Austin. It is a session IPA with citra and mosaic hopps. I believe they just started canning. Have had most of their stuff on tap, so nice to grab it to go now

    THIS. Have yet to find a Boulevard brew I don't really, really enjoy. So pumped to have their stuff so widely available.

    Not where I'm at. It's a moderately large state. They just made it to my area in the past week or so.

    May be a seasonal thing but "Troegs Nugget Nectar" as well as Sculpin and Grapefruit Sculpin. I need the Habenero!

    You must be dying to burn your guts out then! That stuff was way too spicy to be enjoyable.

    Not sure if Alpine was only visiting for Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week, but it was nice to see Nelson (and Hoppy Birthday) on the boards around here last week.

    14th Star here...they're putting out some really good beer. Nice to finally have a taste of Northern VT distributed in the southern part of the state.

    Night Shift's Morph and Whirlpool. A local store just started getting regular shipments of each and it has been simultaneously awesome for me and incredibly hurtful to my wallet.

    Are foreign breweries allowed? Because if so....

    Rothaus......and it's not even close.

    Ballast Point is a very nice addition, and I was pleasantly surprised to see Uinta at the liquor store last week as well. The Hop Nosh IPA is definitely going to get a lot of play this summer.

    Had a lot of Alpine in town for the CBC. Thankfully, it looks like it's here to stay.
