    Local for me, Thomas Creek. Cask nights every month plus regular purchases = a lot of beer.

    Stone and Lagunitas for sure. But I am still a baby in my craft beer age and changes in Alabama laws are the only thing that brought me here in the first place. It's nice when legislation actually does something good for the people!

    Probably Deschutes. Mad River's gotta be up there by virtue of their Scotch Porter. I love that beer!

    Brewery- Either Founders or Sierra Nevada.

    Single beer- FBS, the only beer I've ever bough a case of.

    Odell for sure. Myrcenary and IPA are staples in my fridge. After that is probably Deschutes with a mix of Black Butte, Obsidian, Inversion, etc. usually in my fridge as well.

    Founders easy. Thanks to the Goose Island Migration Weeks, GI a close second, and The Bruery right behind.

    I am also one to partake the local brew more than the national/regional tastiness that is abundent here in a booming beer state like North Carolina. NoDa brewing has been killing from day one and I would say I have tried more of their beers and/or at least drank them on the most steady basis, especially since they came out with the four-pack tallboys. Sierra Nevada Pale and Torpedo are always a contender for most drank beer of the year. And Foothills with Hoppyum and Torch Pils.

    By the number of different offerings:
    SN
    Lagunitas
    Founders

    all widely available fresh in NC and in general very reasonable.

    As far as one offering:
    Another nod to NoDa in Charlotte--Hop Drop and Roll is my local go to, in cans now and on lots of handles, and never disappoints. Quite similar to Jai Alai except it is better.:wink:

    Brewery: Flying Dog. My wife and I are both amazed by everything we've tried from their lineup.
    Single beer: Green Flash Double Stout. This has become my go-to.

    For me...2013 was the year of Jack's Abby. I don't know why, but I passed them over so many times in the past, and had basically their entire lineup this year (including a few brewery-only special releases)
     
  19. TheNightwatchman

    TheNightwatchman Initiate (0) Mar 28, 2009 Pennsylvania

    Almost certainly Troegs for me. I've had a few cases this year, plus plenty on tap at the brewery and at bars.



    Single beer? Sadly it was probably something cheap like PBR or Rolling Rock.

    Prairie for me for sure. They just keep the awesome brews coming constantly! Wine Barrel Noir, Puncheon, Prairie Bomb!, Pirate Bomb!, Oak aged Noir, Vanilla Oak aged Noir, Funky Galaxy, Prairie Standard, Tulsa Rugby Ale, Prairie Ale...it was an AWESOME year of Prairie goodness!

    As far as seeking out a particular brewers product I made a concerted effort to try whatever I could get from Weinhenstephaner. And to a lesser extent Ayinger & Erdinger product as well.

    Rapp Brewing Company, which has only been open for over a year and a couple months. Greg has brewed almost 50 beers now and I've tried at least 40 of them. Hands down one of the best breweries in Florida, I'd go to Rapp over Cigar City any day.

    Definitely Founders and Goose Island for me... And that's due to its recent release in the Texas market. I am damn glad to have their beers here. Texas beer market is swelling so fast now its fantastic it seems like every month we have a new brewery that is available. Its been an expensive beer year to say the least.

    Sierra Nevada for sure. One of the few I buy 12 packs of.

    A lot of Sam Adams, High Life, Jacks Abby. Too.

    Anything else I just mixed it up and get seasonals.

    Didn't drink nearly enough smuttynose this year. Lame.

    Pipeworks by a mile.

    Honorable mention to 3 Floyds, I'm pretty sure I tried everything they released to stores this year. Oh and Zombie Dust was probably my most drank beer.
     
  37. ThirstyMavros

    Founders by far. Next closest was probably Jacks Abby.

    Agree with Weinhenstephaner. I always loved the Hefeweisen but never realized how awesome their Helles Lager (Original Premium) is but really started by more of it this fall, and then I discovered Vitus just 2 weeks ago, which was awesome and great when you want something a little more heavy is about as good as it gets. 3 World class beers there and very inexpensive.

    Founders or Sierra Nevada, they have such great variety, but Victory is catching up thanks to Dirtwolf.
