Kelso here in New York (they are in Brooklyn) doesn't release their recipes, but I've shared a few beers with one of their brewers in a brew shop here. Everyone I've met from there continues to be a great resource and helpful in all of my adventures.

Smuttynose has critiqued a couple of my clone recipes, and in one case sent me a scaled down homebrew version of one of their beers.

As such, I make sure to buy something from their brewery just about every time I buy commercial beer.

Tioga-Sequoia in Fresno is super cool an supportive. They always humor my annoying questions (I'm in the nano planning stage) and have been more than happy to drink my beer and give me honest feedback, as well as bring some of their pilots to me to have me do the same. They are very open to the local homebrew clubs, holding meetings and tastings at the brewery.

Jester King, here in Austin, are very supportive of homebrewers too - it's how they got started. They're happy to fully share recipes, they've kept barrels on site for the local club on site etc.

Flying Fish in NJ is homebrew friendly. I have emailed them a couple of time with questions and they respnded quickly. Alo I went on a tour and they said they will give yeast to homebrewers.

My wife and I go visit a cool little brewpub up in the North Cascades called Birdsview Brewing Co. Last time we were there my wife was drinking some of their Ditsy Blonde and she really liked it. I asked the owner/brewmaster if he would share anything about the recipe. He said "I'll be right back". Five minutes later he returned with a Beersmith printout of the recipe. He scaled it down from 200 gallons to 5.

They have a great thing going and would pretty much do anything for anybody. My kind of place! We love to go there and take friends.

Barley Mow Brewing in Largo, FL is definitely homebrewer friendly. The local HBC met there and the owner gave a brief lesson and invited all questions. He tastes our beers and offered critique, and said that he would invite a select few experienced brewers to brew with him if they wanted to start at 3am one day. Very supportive!

I was thinking macro-craft when I started this thread, but I'm pretty sure I win in the most helpful local brewery department. My local brewery is Depot Street, in Jonesborough, TN. I'm sure you guys have all heard of it. The brewer showed that homebrewing is pretty darn simple even though I'd been afraid of it for years and the owner has offered to weld my valves and such into my keggles for me. Can't beat that with a stick!

Dan at Mother Earth In Vista is the best. He gives me information on all of his recipes. He has also helped me formulate recipes of my own. I describe for him what I am looking for and he creates the recipet in beersmith. He hit it out of the park on an American stout that he created for me about 2 months ago. Ill be brewing a double batch of it this weekend

They made me a life long customer a few years ago. We were in town for my bachelor party and stopped by for a tour. The staff was awesome and we enjoyed the tour and conversations after. I decided to grab a couple kegs to bring home for the rehearsal dinner which was a month later. Their policy is that kegs must be returned after 2 weeks. The girl ringing me out called Linus and he said it was fine to keep them longer. Really cool to do that for me. I make it down there every six months or so and always try to stop by the tap room and bring some beer back to Chicago.
