    Stone: Enjoy By absolutely floored me

    Schlafly Tasmanian IPA was also an incredible surprise

    and the growler of Cigar City: Maduro brown I received in the mail last week rates pretty high for me

    It has more to do with creating a good beer with your own hands, more than anything. Extremely rewarding.

    Lost Abbey's Deliverance is the best beer I've had this year. I know this is not the first time it's been brewed, but this is the first time I've had it. So damn good.
