    Wasn't sure if I was allowed to include Stone Ruination in cask with Lime and Agave since adjuncts were technically added post-brewing... but damn that was good

    DrSnitzen, I forgot about Boulevard Tank 7! Definitely a topper.

    Vfgccp, how long of a wait did you endure for the Hanapu? I lived in Tampa for three years and never went. Heard it gets nuts.

    This is actually really tough to answer. the two beers that have always been favorites to me have been Founders CBS and Cantillon Fou Foune. After those two beers, it's kinda up for grabs. Right now, I think I'd have to add Xocoveza and Born Yesterday Pale Ale just because of how impressed I was with both of those beers recently (and also how much of both I have been drinking). For 5, I'm just gonna go with Union Double Duckpin because I love the stuff and buy tons of it every time it goes out for distro.

    I feel like this list needs to be beers I can get whenever available. I'll try to vary styles on this list. This probably can never actually be a true top 5 but I'll try...

    1. Trillium Vicinity
    2. Tired Hands Hop Hands
    3. Epic Big Bad Baptist
    4. Tired Hands Alien Church
    5. Kane Morning Bell

    This list could change at any time...
