    I lived in Pa for most of my life and still consider it my state, even though i live in jersey now :slight_frown: and I'm not a fan of jersey beer so....

    I would probably go with victory

    I'd say, Two Brothers because I really enjoyed; Hop Centric, Heavier handed, Heavy handed, 16th anniversary & Brotherhood of the barrel batch 1.

    Beachwood. Yep. For me it tops Russian River, Alpine, Stone, and whatever else we have in California.

    Edit: yeah there's no sours, but I can live without them

    For me in Nevada, that's like saying "pick either a hammer, a bat or a crowbar and you'll be hit with this every day when you wake up." It would be a painful and miserable existence if I had to pick a local brewery as I just don't find most things brewed here to be appealing.

    Hinterland Brewing co. Green Bay, WI. I like their Coffee Stout the best, but their Saison is surprisingly
    good and their Cherry Wheat is a summer favorite.

    For me, Lakewood is the most consistent. Revolver has the best singular beer but doesn't brew enough styles to keep me happy.

    As much as I love Revolution, the smart choice would be Pipeworks. So many beers and styles. Not all great, but most are very drinkable and I would never get bored.

    Man, sooo many choices. However, I find myself heading over to Odells more often than most.

    Prob Goose Island, enough styles to try and if I had to only drink BCBS I would not shed a tear

    I love Sours. I'm from CA, i'd chose Alpine but they only release sours seldomly. Best Sours here on a consistent basis would be Russian River or Bruery. I'd go RR, love the line up and its relatively easy to get.

    If I had to pick one brewery just for the beers alone, it will probably be the Bruery. But I love going to Stone for the environment tap/bottle list and also Pizza Port for the food.

    WAAAIIIT a minute. NEBCO is the best, but Two Roads also brews Lawson's, Evil Twin, and a bunch of other beers. If I could have all the beers from that brewery, I might reconsider.

    18th street for me! Probably not the most popular vote, cause of FFF's. The only styles of beer that FFF does better are Ipa's , Apa's, etc.... Now that Iv'e tried Deal with the Devil, I'm not even 100% sure on that. That being said, I've yet to try any BADL's I'm sure there outstanding since people are willing to give up their first born for one.

    Ithaca (so I can drink Flower Power) or Captain Lawrence - underrated NY Brewery in my opinion.

    I'd have to say New Glarus but sure would miss having some bourbon barrel stuff... Can I sneak in a Central Waters here and there?

    Honorable mention: Karben4, Black Husky

    2nd Shift.... They're down for the hops, and in a world where one may ask...."Does a single brewery really need to have 3 different Imperial IPA's???" They answer... "ummm yes" :astonished:

    Firestone Walker. Nothing against Sierra Nevada, Stone, or Russian River, but between Parabola and Wookey Jack, Firestone takes it hands down.
