Default Help me choose please! USA beers

Hey guys, once again, I need your help.

My parents are going on vacation in Ogunquit (Maine) in 2 weeks. I asked them if they could bring back a couple of USA brews... Of course they said yes!!!

So I found this Beer and wine store: Tully's beer and wine

They seem to have a good selection but... I don't know what to write on my list! I never had american crafted or micro brews exept Rogue's IIPA and a couple of Sam Adams (is it micro?!?!? not sure). I see you guys often talk about dogfish head, rogue, Sierra Nevada... What should I put on my damn list?

They can take back the equivalent of 4 * 24 beers. But, I don't want to be ruined so I think I'm gonna order 2 * 24 or so.

I really like wheat beers, IPA and lots of other stuff...

Help me... Please!

Thanks!

I could probably spend an entire paycheck in the store you linked.

Some good ones I would recommend are Flying Dog In heat Wheat and Flying Dog Snake Dog IPA, Sam Adams Black Lager ( If you cant get it where you are) any of the harpoon Brews and any of the Rogue brews.

If they're going to be in Maine. Gritty Mcduffs is good and brewed in Maine. Smuttynose is brewed in New Hampshire so that should be available. I'm sure they'll be able to get any number of Vermont brewed beers Long Trail, Trout River, Rock Art, Harpoon is in Vermont and Mass and available just about every where. I'm sure they'll be a ton of other folks who will have plenty of others. But those should all be available in just about any part of Maine.

What I would choose from those offerings as a good cross-section of American craft beer:

Dogfish Head: 60 min IPA, 90 IPA, other stuff if your budget allows
Smutty Nose: IPA, Brown, Pale Ale
Anchor: Anchor Steam (a classic American beer)
Sierra Nevada: Pale Ale (another classic), any thing else

Jolly Pumpkin and Brewery Ommegang make very good Belgian style beer.

I've recently become a huge fan of Lagunitas (going on a brewery tour next week!) and I'd have to second the recommendations of Rogue, Dogfish Head, and Anchor Steam (also hitting that tour next week). Long Trail is a great New England beer if you want to try something from the locale where your folks will be. Stay away from Magic Hat, it is trendy and awful.

You are going to love the Lagunitas tour. I went last month, and it was the coolest tour I have been on. The brewery is small, but the tour was a lot of fun. The bar is sweet, and don't be afraid to ask to try any other beer you see on tap or in the fridge, they will pour whatever you want. Also have a designated driver, because they WILL get you drunk. You planning on hitting up any other breweries in the area?

Sorry for the thread hijack.

I would recommend Smuttnose, Brewery Ommegang, Brooklyn Brewery and Otter Creek for some great Northeast USA beers.

And definitely get an Anchor Steam!

OK, Thanks all for your fast replies!

I'll surely put some DFH 60IPA and 90IPA on the list. Should I get a 6er of each or you think it is too much? Same thing goes with the Anchor steam and the SNPA.

What Rogue shold I go with??? I was thinking something between those: Dead guy, IIPA, Shakespear stout, chocolate stout, half-e-weizen... Or others?

I'll have to check all of your suggestions web site and make a choice... Or, I'll ask them to bring back 4 * 24!
