    Dogfish Head, to me, is the most overrated brewery in the entire world. Bitches Brew was pretty good, IPAs are decent, but Rhizing Bines was a MASSIVE disappointment, and their "ancient ales" are simply undrinkable. I understand that they pioneered many brewing techniques and are arguably the most creative craft brewery, but when it comes down to me and a pint of DFH beer, I'm thinking about all the other beer I'd rather be drinking. I'm not impressed - STEP UP YOUR GAME DFH!

    Didn't want to be let down. Starting this thread help me lower my expectations. ;)

    I definitely would have said Sixpoint up until a few weeks ago. Their beers have struck me as good at best but more often completely forgettable. That is, until I tried the 3beans. They really knocked it out of the park with that one.

    So instead, I'm going to have to go with my local beer scene in general: Long Island, NY. A bunch of them make good beers, but I've yet to be truly impressed by them. Not really counting Southampton's special release beer, though.
