    Went through without first looking at responses. Didn't want to allow prior posts to influence.

    The Bruery
    Alesmith
    Westbrook

    *Hill farmstead would be one, but I haven't had enough of their beers to qualify.

    Since I live on the border between Oregon and Washington, I'll rule both of those two out. That leaves me:
    • The Bruery
    • Allagash
    • Crooked Stave

    There are about 100 more that are pretty close too, it's not fair to make one choose three.

    Well, from having multiple offerings I'd have to say Founder's, Goose Island (due to BCBS and variants), and Pipeworks. But, I'm open to this list changing if I get a shot at more Lawson's, Maine Beer Co, Cigar City, Wicked Weed, Revolution, Cascade (that I can afford), Toppling Goliath, Westbrook, Dark Horse, and many others.

    Good discussion topic! Here are my three:

    DFH
    Founders
    Great Lakes

    Could have also easily gone with Bell's and Breckenridge.

    Hmmm this is a difficult question. I would say....

    Wicked Weed
    Stone
    Founders

    The last two could change as I try more beers from various breweries, but the first is rock solid.

    This is a great question. The only out of state beers that I regularly purchase are Deschutes. I'd love to have a wider variety of fresh out of state beers available.

    I second my fellow Ohioans answer, Russian River, Firestone Walker and Three Floyd's. Luckily we get Three Floyd's fairly regularly and I can trade for the other ones. Firestone Walker, PLEASE come to Ohio!!
