    This is really difficult.

    1. To ├śl (from Denmark)
    2. Anchorage
    3. Port/Lost Abbey

    Also Founders, Jolly Pumpkin, Mikkeller, Hoppin Frog, Cantillon, 3Fonteinen, FFF, Firestone Walker, De Molen, Emelisse, Boulevard, AleSmith, Bruery, Amager, Kernel, Stone, Victory, Great Divide etc.

    I havent had anything from Hill Farmstead, Deschutes, Lagunitas, Ballast Point, Alpine; only Pliny from RR, and only few from Bells, Cigar City, Avery and Hair of the Dogs. Those could be really good breweries.

    2- Hill Farmstead (Just simple, great beers)
    3- Allagash (Wouldn't have said this a year ago, but their one-offs and coolships have been amazing)
