Default What is your favorite local beer (besides Homebrew)

Some of us are more lucky than others but I am just now reaping the benefits of the Dallas brew scene taking off in the last few years. I live about 40 miles north of dallas We've got
Peticolas - Velvet hammer and "sit down or i'll sit you down DIPA"
Community - Mosaic IPA and Minivan Wheat Wine
Deep Ellum Brewing - IPA
Lakewood Brewing -Hop Trapp, and Temptress
Franconia(mckinney) - All about german tradition Kolsch and Winter wheat.
Martin House(ft worth) - Rubberneck Red and Imperial Texan.

There are many more breweries but these are currently my favorites that are very good examples of some of the great stuff north Texas is doing with craft beer. We may have been a little late to the party but we have some great stuff.

Im from the bay area and the beer scene is taking off here (alongside the preexisting wine scene). A new local brewery, Altamont Beer Works, makes some good beers. I personally feel as though some are too hoppy, however some of the less hopped ones are extremely balanced and very delicious. One of their beers, Rich Mahogany, is great!

Anything from Frey's is amazing, especially Backwoods Brigade and Whack Truck McDonkey. Unfortunately they don't have a tasting room yet, only growler fills or one of the local pubs will sometimes have one tapped, and a select couple styles are available in bottles here and there.

Union has some really good brews as does Brewer's Art, but I don't get to Baltimore too often.

I'm in Seattle, there's mediocre to great beer everywhere. Two places are standouts for me and deserve more attention.

Reuben's Brews is a year old place opened by a long time homebrewer that's making lots of great stuff, especially hoppy beers and beers with rye. I've heard that they are brewing a special batch of Blimey That's Bitter (Pliney the Younger inspired triple IPA) for the Washington Beer Fest, be sure to sample it if you get a chance especially if you can get it out of a cask. They only have a 5bbl brewhouse without any room to expand so it's tough to get their beer.

I'm also a fan of Sound Brewery across Puget Sound in Poulsbo. They've been brewing great Belgian styles with a Pacific Northwest flair.

Chicago area here, just about anything from Revolution (particularly Anti-Hero and A Little Crazy) and Half Acre. I always keep some Daisy Cutter on hand.

I used to really enjoy Troegs Nugget Nectar, but for some reason the past 2 years it hasn't had the same "wow" factor. Kinda blends in anymore, meh.


Victory's Hop Ranch and Fegley's Bourbon Barrel Insidious are up there for me right now.
