    An insanely generous BA decided to share Beatification ph1 with me (among other never-had-a-chance-to-try helluva whalez). This one takes the lead for me in 2013. But the year ain't over yet :rolling_eyes:

    For me my favorite...not the best tasting overall but best, has been sucks. It's been always fresh, always protecting the beers i'm aging from being drank, its easily consumed by my non craft friends....just all around amazing.

    Pipeworks' Galaxy Unicorn and Great Lakes Alchemy Hour. Drinking a Revolution Galaxy Hero right now and it would be a contender as well. Was Three Floyds' Rye'da Tiger new this year? If so that would take it for me.

    I've got a Two Brothers 16th Anniversary Golden Ale sitting in my fridge. Really interested to try it, seeing as it's 16% abv...

    KBS is pretty high up there, but my favorite beer thus far might just be the fresh Myrcenary on tap I had in Denver. Truly an unexpected delight, which really pushes it to the forefront. I have had equally good beers this year, but I was more pleasantly surprised and pleased with the Myrcenary.

    Permanent funeral, hands down. One of the best DIPAs I have ever had.

    Black Note. Took me a while to get my hands on one and it was well worth the chase.

    RR Supplication at the brewery during PtY week single handedly sent me into a Wild Ale craze.

    Pliny the Elder or 2012 Black Tuesday or the 2012 BA Behemoth... Hard to say, even more difficult to choose.

    For the Indianapolis market, Founders All Day IPA and New Belgium Rampant. All Day is a killer option for warm weather and Rampant is a great DIPA option at $10.99 per 6NR.

    I could not agree with you more. That imperial stout knocked my socks off. I couldn't get enough of it and crushed my glass in like 5 minutes. So much flavor. And that Alchemy was one of the better IPAs I've had in awhile.

    Sam Adams Double Agent IPL hands down. I've had Alchemy Hour I've had Permanent Funeral I've had Founders Doom and most of the others that are being listed but Double Agent to me is a game changer that IMO should rival Boston Lager or SNPA for being a go to craft beer american classic. Everything that is raved about is always an IIPA or a barrel aged something, its nice to see out of the box thinking applied to something that can be a daily drinker.

    I would definitely have to say Founders Doom. I visited the brewery for the release party and had an 8 oz pour of it, enjoyed the HOT AS HELL Devil Dancer sandwich, then took home 6 bombers! Great beer, great food, great time. Definitely my favorite brewery.
