    Lagunitas Sucks (bought 2 cases), Sixpoint Resin (drinking my way through a case now), and Great Lakes Rye of the Tiger (54 bottles) are my top 3. All new to me in 2013.

    Just drank my last bottle of Sucks. Currently drinking a Resin. Gotta give the nod to Resin.
    Guess I need to drink a Rye of the Tiger next.

    HaandBic was a band-aide bomb. This is not a desirable quality in beer. Subtle amounts are ok in a wild ale/lambic, but the two bottles of HaandBic I bought this year were a disaster.

    Had a buddy make a trip up to Illinois and bring back a ton of ZD and Permanent Funeral....PF is worth whatever you traded!

    With that said, PF might be the best that I've tried this year

    I've got two beers that I don't think anyone's mentioned yet. Goose Island Sofie Paradisi and Hill Farmstead Edith. Both are amazing saisons. Also was a huge fan of Tired Hands' Guillemot Prunus and HF's Society & Solitude #6.

    As for beers that were new to me, but not new beers, Drie Fonteinen Armand'4 Zomer, Hill Farmstead Jim (batch 1), Peg's RareR DOS, Surly Darkness (2008), Evil Twin Port Even More Jesus, Koutsky 12 pilsner, Boneyard Hop Venom and Notorious.

    #1 is easily Hair of the Dog Pannepooch, which they told me at the brewery they would hopefully be bottling later this year. Let's all pray that happens.

    Also surprisingly good: Bootlegger's Tropical Thunder.
