    Grapefruit Sculpin and Willoughby Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Porter. Have had both many, many times, both are in my personal top 10, and not once have I ever had one and wondered if it was worthy of my top 10. I cannot say these things about any other beers.

    My "go to" and one that will never let me down are different. Prairie Bomb will never let me down...but it's also hard as hell to get in Chico CA. So because of that, my go to is Fresh Squeezed when it's warm outside, and Velvet Merlin when it's not.

    CCB Tocobaga. Perfectly refreshing every time. It may be because its never around long enough to sit though.

    I don't know if I would call them go to's, but I've never been mad that I drank a Sucks or Alpha King.
    For local never let me down beers I would say NG Staghorn, Black Top, Scream and Snowshoe are on the list, along with Lake Louie Bunny Green Toe IPA and Warped Speed Scotch Ale and Karben 4 Fantasy Factory IPA.

    I scrolled through this thread just to say exactly that. I'll add that it's great in every season. If I'm ever in doubt I'll grab a six of Founders Porter to make sure I bought something tasty. Oh and you can find it anywhere, even in places with one fluorescent light bulb half burned out and a craft selection of three varieties in far corner where the cashier looks at you like an alien for spending 10 bucks on some funny lookin' six pack.

    Victory at Sea. Now that it comes in 6 packs for under 15 bucks, I seem to be picking it up more often than not when I enter the local store.
