    Cigar City is distributed to New York, at least to part of the state, maybe not your part.

    For my wish I wish Deschutes and Russian River would distribute to NY. And that Keegan Ales Super Kitty would come in 12 oz., reasonably priced four-paks. Yayyy, that second wish already has come true.

    Okay this would seriously be the greatest thing to ever happen.

    I would also say I wish Founders would distribute to Texas

    I wish somebody would make an affordable session beer.

    A 4% ABV at $20 a case sounds would work for me.

    I wish Alchemist would brew more beer than just heady topper similar to what they used to do at the old resturaunt.

    I wish Cantillon would make their new foreign releases available for consumption on premise @ brewery / maybe even in Belgium. This will never happen.

    I sure have, another excellent brew. They seem to do German beer better than the Germans do.

    But, I legitimately never liked budweiser in any form....

    I wish Rogue would sell more Imperials.

    I'm with you. Would love to see more cans from them. If I had to pick the next brew though it would would be another intensely hoppy beer like heady, but with a much lower ABV. 6% tops.

    I wish all these awesome west coast breweries would distribute to Maryland.

    Struise WVL is a bourbon BA Westy 12 clone & according to some simply barrel-aged vintage Westy 12.

    I wish Vinnie would adopt me and raise me as his own child. As I grew up he would teach me the ways of the Jedi brewer. I would eventually turn against him and start the greatest brewery in all the land!...

    In all seriousness though I wish Greg Hall would get really drunk and walk into the AB-InBev headquarters and pee all over their boardroom.

    I also may need some sort of professional counceling ;)

    New recipe of Happy Hops is equally as good or better than Row2/Hill56 IMHO...Blind Pig better than Pliny....that's some good Ganja you're smokin' ;-) Argueably equally as good MAYBE.

    Cheers!

    also, I wish Jolly Pumpkin would send us more than 1 case, total across all SKUs, a year...

    I wish all craft brewers would get back to basics and the core values this industry started with and get away from the consumer driven nonsense that has infected this industry.
