    Six months since I first answered this and Dayman is still on top. Wish Stone would make this full time.

    Favorite NEW beer is Founders Porter. see ranking so far highest rank this year so far.

    of course every year Orval and Westy are my top beers for life. nothing will change that, unless they both stop making beer.

    Dayman was a great brew! I luckily have some Tired Hands Herbert West otw to me. Almanac Farmer's Reserve #2 might still be the best beer to come out this year that I've had.

    I can't say enough good things about the FW Union Jack IPA. I think it's a great representation of the style but also has some variation that gives it its own identity. I've had some other great stuff this year but that's one I just tried recently and keep going back to.

    Either J Wakefield's DFPF Berliner Weisse or Crooked Stave's Raspberry Dark Origins. Excellent fruit character in those beers.
