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

    Stone, Sierra Nevada and Allagash can do no wrong. Rogue may have been up there if they hadent released that maple bacon doughnut, yuck!

    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
    Firestone Walker
    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.
