Wow, it took 40 minutes and 23 replys before Hill Farmstead got a mention? They were easily the first brewery to come to mind when I saw this thread. In previous versions of this thread, I always went with the likes of Sierra Nevada or Smuttynose but 2012 was good to me and I was able to get over to VT quite a bit (even still, I'm relatively local being only 70 miles away in NH). Heck, I don't even need HFs full line up, just three of their regulars... Abner to cover my hop need, Everett to cover the dark side of the spectrum, and Anna for my saison/Belgian needs. More often than not my cravings fit either into the hoppy, roasty, or funky (very loose definition here) category. All others would just be a bonus.
