Thats true! I never think about the size of CA when it comes to brew. Just the quality.
NY: great distribution and some good breweries here (it's home). Oh and it's close to..... VERMONT
VT: Hill Farmstead, Lawson's, and Heady Nation
East Coast is a risin' folks... to be continued...
California and Michigan. Then Alabama because I live here. Roll Tide. Roll Beer.
Michigan & California
Minnesota and Iowa. Surly and TG.
Vt and Mass all day long.
That could have been Belgium and Uganda, for all I care. Once you mention Belgium, the other doesn't matter.
obviously liquid & next best would be gas. plasma would be last; such a palate wrecker.
I jest number 1 would be 'the state up north' for many great breweries bIg & small. number 2 colorado. indiana is close 2 for 3f.
California and ... Actually that's all I'd need to be happy.
California and Vermont. With an honorable mention to Michigan.
Top Tens are cool, but best Two's are kinda hard to narrow down. I'll sit this one out.
CA & AZ. CA because it is the best brewing region in the world, AZ because that is where I live, and because it is just a few hours from CA. And AZ has awesome Growler fill laws on CA beers distributed here!!
Vermont clear #1 for me and ill go Michigan just ahead of Cali cuz I couldn't live w out any Founders.
I have to agree with this. Cali for sure because I am such a hophead. The other would be either Colorado or Michigan. I love founders and Bells so I would lean that way.
i left out colorado, michigan, new york ... who knows what else? not easy
I do enjoy all the love Michigan is getting here! I would vote Michigan and California myself, both produce such awesome amount of craft brew and Michigan is my home state so I have tried most of them here!
Another vote for Michigan and Cali here
CA is the easy #1 for me. #2 is tougher with it coming down to CO and MI. I can't pick one over the other.
Michigan and California, easy
I got the sour fix covered with RR and JP and the list continues with many other styles.
California and Oregon.
I live in California so drink mostly CA beers, so that is my first and obvious pick. I don't do much trading so don't get to try many East Coast and Mid-West beers sadly. I know there is a lot of really amazing beers left untasted. That being said, what I mainly drink second would be Deschutes beer.
Lots of love for CA! I clearly still need to try a bunch of east coast beer. I see a ton of stuff on here showing love for a few select states, and can't wait to get out and try some! Come to think of it I just can't wait to try another beer, period
Vermont and Calie. HT, Hill Farmstead, Stone, Russian River, Lagunitas. Think I could live on that line up the rest of my life no problem. Michigan would be my alternative, for Fouders alone.
WY & CO.
California and Michigan
Illinois an Michigan for me Goose Islands stouts are my favorite. Michigan you can't go wrong with Bells,Founders and Kuhnhenn.
About those hops... Nelson Sauvin, of course, but also Pacific Gem, Riwaka, Dr. Rudi, Green Bullet, Waimea, Pacifica, Southern Cross, Motueka. They don't export them all!
8 Wired and Epic, as mentioned, but also Tuatara makes some great IPAs.
Oh, and so as not to thread hijack: Cali and Penn for me.
California and Vermont assuming that for these purposes I can actually have Vermont beers without driving there. Michigan is a close third, but their distro isn't much better where I'm standing.
New York and Pennsylvania. Case closed.
First pick is Colorado. I've traded for all those big name beers from the majority of the big breweries out there and honestly, if there is something that is getting hyped out the ass I have always been able to find something as good or better right here in my own backyard. You say kbs or parabola, I say uncle jacobs or ac golden ctayt. You say pliny and I'll say myrcenary. You say two hearted or stone ipa and I'll say odell ipa or modus hoperandi. You say allagash or ommegang and I'll say funkwerks. I'm glad so many great colorado beers fly under the ba radar, but there are two beers I've had from out of state that I can't find something as good herre. So, because of juicy and heady my number two is vt.
California and Michigan are the easy choices. Illinois is in the team photo with GI, Pipeworks, Revolution andHalf Acre though. I've never had anything other than Heady from Vermont so I can't consider it.
Michigan and Minnesota. Colorado a close third.
Probably Mich and Cali, but in the running: Vermont, Colorado, Illinois, Oregon and Ohio! Although I love some of the breweries in these states ie: Six Point, ST, Troegs, CCB, but I can't include PA, NY or FLA!
Badgers and Wolverines for me. Wisconsin's has amazing variety in its craft breweries and it is home to the Malt House, a humble no nonsense pub that celebrates the wide world of beer. If ever in Madison you should visit. You won't be disappointed. Being home to Bells, Michigan has to be on the list.
Colorado and California. Michigan would be a close 3rd
California and Colorado for me.
California and Michigan with Wisconsin a close 3rd.
