    From Maryland...

    Burley Oak - Pale Ryder (This is one of the best, if not the best, Pale Rye I've ever had. It is pure genius.)
    Baltimore Washington Beer Works - Tell Tale Heart Ale (A staple in my house)
    Heavy Seas Brewing - Literally everything by them is outstanding.
    The Brewer's Art - Ressurection Ale (based on a belgian dubbel recipe)
    Flying Dog - Single Hop Citra
    Burley Oak - Aboriginal Gangster (American IPA)

    The real popular beer right now is DuClaw's Sweet Baby Jesus (a Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter), which is pretty good...but IMO DuClaw has gone down hill the past few years.

    Top 3 not necessarily in order (although SR is probably 1 because it's on tap everywhere)

    Berkshire Steel Rail
    Berkshire Coffeehouse Porter
    Hoponius Union

    Beyond that there are probably a dozen or more "once a year" type buys and none stands out.

    Lawson's Double Sunshine
    Lawson's Triple Play IPA
    Lawson's Hopzilla
    Heady Topper
    Fiddlehead 2nd Fiddle

    Though they make excellent beer, I have dropped Hill Farmstead from my list ever since they instituted a 3 growler limit: a 2 hour drive and two hour wait for beer plus a 2 hour ride home is a waste of my time. HF has become a haven for out of state enthusiasts, and has a ridiculous cash only policy that turns me off.

    Heady
    Lawson's
    HF on tap, won't drive there any more. I'm good with Harlan, Edward and Everett from bars or pubs.
    Don't really have a 4th or fifth. Fiddlehead is great, but if Lawson's or HF is available on tap....meh.
    Does grassroots count?

    Have you tried Grateful Hands from Cabot,VT? Contentment IIPA and Red Fern hoppy red ale are both solid but not easy to get.

    I had hometown IPA once, have heard contentment is their best. I never have time to hit them up in summer- on the list for the next hmc run. Cheers
