Default Northeast US trip soon, what beers to look for?

Taking a trip this spring. Passing through OH, PA, NY, CT, MA, VT, NH, ME.
Mostly looking for stuff I cannot get in Indiana.
Help me out, what beers do I not want to miss picking up a 6 pack of?

Thanks much,
Lakedawgs

I have no idea what is distributed to your area but check out Southern Tier if you are in South Western NY.

Jacks Abby out of Framingham Ma has great lagers. Definitely try Hoponious Union. Maine Beer Co in Portland ME is a one of my favorite. Their #1 is Peeper ale but I have not had a bad beer of theirs. White Birch in Hooksett NH also has a good line up of beers. Their Hooksett Ale is good. And another one of my favorites is Pretty Things, a nomadic brewery in eastern MA. Jack D'or is their flagship but if you're coming in the spring or summer, keep an eye out for fluffy white rabbits (spring) or meadowlark (summer).

Ommegang brewery has some great belgian ales. Three philosophers being one of best. Davidson Brothers has a really great brown ale. Saranac pale ale is really popular though you may be able to get it else where. Brooklyn is another good brewery....there are a lot of NY breweries and this list only scratches the surface. If you could only do one I find something from Ommegang.

This is it...Jack Abbey is must. The Alchemist in Vermont is one to consider but its a hike and they don't distribute very far.

If you are in southern Connecticut there is an awesome microbrewery called Cottrell. They don't make anything too fancy, only about 4 or 5 beers. However, they make a great IPA called mystic bridge IPA and a wee heavy called Perry's revenge. I love the Perry's Revenge it's a great beer. Also if you find yourself in south eastern CT you can go their brewery and take a tour and tasting. It's a tiny brewery but the guys that work there are great!

Also not too far away there is a "nano brewery" that just opened up called Beer'd (no association to my username). I actually haven't been there but if your in the area it can't hurt to stop by!

Hope you have a good trip!

Cheers!

You can only get the nano brewery beer by visiting the actual brewery, the guy only sells it in growlers

What is your intended route and stopping points? In NY at least, that makes a huge difference in recommendations as NY is the largest state in the NE.
