    I will blindly try any beer from any brewery - but probably not blindly buy any beer from any brewery

    I'd blindly try any beer from any brewery as long as it's a single 12 oz bottle with a reasonable price tag.

    I'd blindly try a lot from a lot of breweries. At the top I suppose I'd go with Founders, FFF, Victory, Great Lakes, Bells, Green Flash, Sierra Nevada, Surly, Green Flash, Half Acre, Ballast Point, Goose Island, and others.

    Jack's Abby
    Founders

    and Hill Farmstead, even though I've yet to try their beer. Hopefully I'll be going up to Vermont some time in April.

    The IPAs from DFH that I've tried have been fantastic, but some of their brews are just too weird for me.
