    Southern Tier. Even the beers I have liked the least from them were still good, all something I would buy again and nothing below a 3.5.

    All of these might not be available when you stop in Indiana but they are all well above average for their style and I recommend them all.

    Fullers, Goose Island (yes, I'm serious, even 312 isn't "bad"), new glarus and black sheep are VERY close

    Not a big brewery but a local brewery here in Kennesaw Georgia called Burnt Hickory. The most consistent and delicious beers around.

    Wish I could agree about Founders, but to me some of the backstage beers were not good. Still - it's one of my favourite breweries.

    There are certain breweries where I could say I haven't had a bad beer (Cantillon), but IMO they have too limited of a style range to be able to qualify.

    The only one I can think of is Hill Farmstead. Even my least favourite beers from them still fall in the "very solid" category.

    I wouldn't call Great Lakes my favorite brewery, but I've never had a beer from that I disliked, or one that I didn't think was a good representation of the style.

    I totally read the title of the thread wrong. I missed the "bad". So I haven't had a beer from founders is what I meant to say lol. I really screwed that one up.

    Founders. Can't think of anyone else that every single beer I've tried is terrific (unless you count one beer breweries, Alchemist, Orval, etc).

    Founders (they're here in Texas now, just haven't gotten around to it), Surly, Three Floyds.

    Strike Founders; I forgot, I have had their All Day IPA. That's probably why I didn't remember it.

    Another one for me would be Kern River. One was average, but it was not bad. All others were good to great.

    sierra Nevada, founders, boulder brewing, rushing duck, southern tier. Have only had a few from rushing duck, but they have blown me away so far. I haven't tried all day ipa from founders, which i hear isn't their greatest (perhaps their worst?). To me, sierra nevada has always had a bit of a stain on them because of their availabilty (shitty gas stations have them next to bud light platinum) but i love everything they do.
