    I'm so incredibly bummed we don't get Prairie in VA. As far as breweries with solid reach, they're my #1 I wish we had in the state. My opinion is based on one trip to NC where I grabbed everything I could.

    Bomb! was #1 with Funky Gold Mosaic as #2. All their Bomb! variations and other barrel beers have me salivating every time I see them referenced.

    Apple Brandy Noir and Pirate Bomb, hands down... Followed by Pirate Noir. So damn good.

    Apple Brandy Noir really knocked it out of the park for me!

    Haven't tried any of their stuff...the $10 per 12 oz kinda keeps me at bay.

    Price check please!!??

    Pirate Bomb! for me. I also remember loving Coffee Noir, but it was a few years ago and one of the first Prairie offerings I had had at the time, so I hope to revisit that one. Okie was great, and I'm looking forward to trying the coffee version.

    So far, I've had only Pirate BOMB!, Apple Brandy Noir, and Limo Tint. The prices on a lot of Prairie's offerings are a little steep, to say the least, so I won't be pulling the trigger on these on a regular basis. That said, I'm glad I popped for the Pirate BOMB! It's my second-highest rated beer (behind only Rochefort 10).

    Didn't love bomb! But AB Noire was unreal. I was so impressed with that beer I had no idea what had hit me. I haven't had too many of their funky soury beers, but I was really pleased with funky gold amarillo too. Would love to drink that all the time!

    I have some BA Bomb at home that I haven't opened yet, but the Apple Brandy Noir will be very hard to top.

    That's the price for regular bomb in the FL panhandle. We recently received BA Bomb and it's at 11 bucks a pop.

    Apple Brandy Noir or Barrel-Aged Bomb. Pirate Bomb was terrific, and I'm not a much of a rum guy so that speaks to how well they did on that one. I have a Coffee Okie and Pirate Noir sitting around I'll probably try soon.

    As far as their non-BA/stouts, Brett C and Prairie Hop are both outstanding, 'Merica and Funky Gold Amarillo were very solid too.

    Similar in Texas. BOMB! maybe $8-8.5, most others $10-12. Haven't seen BA BOMB yet so can't say, but I expect 12

    Favorite? Gotta be a toss up between Vanilla Noir and AB Noir. Although that may change once I crack open one of my bottles of BA Bomb based on what I've been hearing.

    That said, I really do love their flagship (Prairie Ale) and grab a bottle anytime I see it on the shelf. Plus there are a ton of other really solid ones they make:

    Prairie Standard
    Xmas Bomb
    Prairie Flare
    Pirate Bomb
    Funky Gold Mosaic
    Prairie Hop

    One of my top 3 favorite breweries. I really enjoy almost everything I have had from them, besides this last anniversary ale, with Apple brandy standing out at the top. Just drank ape snake and loved it. Wine Barrel noir also stood out to me and I love Christmas bomb. Hell even standard is an amazing brew.

    These are the 3 that I've tried that stand out. I don't think I've had anything lower than 'good' by Prairie. Have a BA Bomb! sitting here and probably going to do a side by side with the base for the Superbowl!

    I have had all of the Noir's and think they are simply awful. However, Bomb is one of my all time favs overall.

    1. Funky Galaxy - A super unique brew in my book. One of a kind! Just the aroma is almost enough for me. Almost a black IPA but with the funk.
    1a. Bomb!
    2. Prairie Ale

    Bomb! is an amazing beer. Had it numerous times, and it's always been world class.

    I do have a bottle of '15 Vanilla Noir in my "cellar." Haven't popped it yet.
