Default Heading West... What to bring back?

Hey, I'm heading to Phoenix in a few weeks from New England and I'm hoping to bring a few things back we can't get here. Being an IPA guy Russian River would be amazing, but I understand they don't ship there. Anyone have any suggestions of what to look for that isn't available on the East Coast?

Thanks!

Check out Four Peaks Brewing Co. I like their Kiltlifter Ale

If you can get anything from Stone Brewery....get it. I don't think they make anything bad. I know my friends in the midwest wanted me to ship them stones all the time when I lived in SD.

You get New Belgium products out there? Every time someone crossed the big muddy divide They had to bring back Fat Tire until a couple years ago.

Also, New Belgium has a tasty sour called La Follie.

Thanks for the input! I'll definitely look for New Belgium, I've heard a lot about them, same goes for Kiltlifter. We have Stone and Laguanitas here, and I often pick them up

New Belgium has a beer finder on their web site.

I really like Avery Brewing as well, but I don't know what their distribution is.

Ballast point soon sculpin is one of my favorite ipas

If you can find Russian River blind pig is a must as well

Oskar blues makes awesome beers in a can

Deschutes is another great brewery if you don't get them east
