    I could also have named Hair of the Dog, Drie Fonteinen, De Dolle, De Molen, Russian River, Three Floyds, Närke, Kernel, etc. but sadly, that would have made more than 3...

    I think he said best in the U.S., although I wish that those breweries existed in the U.S, I dont think they do. If they do Please point me in the direction of Drie Fonteinen U.S.A, I think I will live there.:slight_smile:

    Right now it's probably Founders, Lagunitas, and Troegs. Really, all three always have solid to great lineups and do so at great prices for what they make. Especially Lagunitas. I still am kind of amazed they put out what they do at the prices they do. My $40 case of Sucks (plus tax) is probably my best beer purchase for the year.

    I finally got around to counting up all the votes. According to everyone's collective opinions, the top 3 breweries are as follows:
    1. Founders with 348 points
    2. Stone with 148 points
    3. Lagunitas with 141 points
    There were some close to the third place spot, namely FW and RR. Anyone surprised by these? I had no idea Founders would take it by such a large margin.
