New Glarus and Ommegang.
Local- tired hands..............hands down!
Anywhere- TG................sooooooo gooooood!
might also add de molen to this list, and jackie o's, two that i am only recently familiar with, but have been incredibly impressive across the board!
Founders above all, and 2nd place i'd give to De Molen.
My favorite is Avery Brewery and not far behind is Boulevard.
If I had more access to Hill Farmstead and Russian River they could possibly be my top 2. Also, I'm going to California in a couple of weeks and will be drinking a lot of local beer I can't get in Florida. By the time I get back Alpine could be my favorite brewery.
Founders and Deschutes
Founders and Side Project.
Founders and 3 Floyds
damn, this is hard. Boneyard and Fremont.
Creature Comforts and Firestone Walker
tough question. at the moment I would have to say Schlafly and New Belgium.
This could change in a week though.
Burnt Hickory and Stone
Lagunitas and Firestone Walker
Odell & Avery
I just want to take a second to stress that Three Floyds would be "middle of the pack" if they produced/distributed as much as Founders..... Strike me down with your blade of judgement fellow BA's.
*Edit: This is an opinion, not a fact. Or maybe it is a fact.
Firestone Walker and Odell
Lagunitas and Russian River.
1. Sierra Nevada
Other Half and Trillium.
Wicked Weed - sours
The Alchemist - Heady Topper
West Coast: Russian River and Deschutes
No Coast: 3 Floyds and Bells
East Coast: Allagash and Ommegang
local: boneyard and de garde
out of state: russian river and fremont
Ommegang and Firestone Walker.
Deschutes and Founders
I tell you what, for my accessible go-tos, Deschutes might run the table. Fresh Squeezed, Black Butte, Obsidian, Red Chair, Chainbreaker...good lord.
So many to choose from.....Firestone walker and Lagunitas
Changes often. For now it's Deschutes (Obsidian stout and Mirror Mirror barleywine are fantastic) and Alesmith (Wee Heavy Scotch Ale, Speedway Stout and IPA are hard to top in each style)
Russian River and Tree House.
Large Scale = Lagunitas and Firestone Walker
Local Scale = Abandon Brewing Co. and Finger Lakes Brewing Co.
3 Floyds and 18th Street.
Sante Adairius Rustic Ales
Holy crap this is hard.
My top two have to be:
1. Cigar City
2. 18th Street
Im biased as i live in NJ.
Russian River and Lagunitas or Alchemist...can't decide...both for very different reasons but tied for the purposes of this thread...
3 Floyds and Pipeworks
Stone and Victory, with a close third to Avery. Everything they make is just so nifty - just don't drink them as much as the other two.
