I would add Great Lakes and Victory Brewing to that list. Maybe Southern Tier, but those are just ones I can think of. I'm sure There are smaller breweries all over the place brewing unique beer.

oh no publisher yet it's still in it's infancy but i want it to be similar to extreem brewing but i want to take it to the next level and put more complex brewing meathods in it. I loved extreme brewing but it left me wanting more. So i decided to make one.

Well... I'm not quite sure if Bell's is considered an "extreme" brewery like Dogfish, but they do make one hell of an extreme beer. They make this stuff called Hopslam (you may have seen/drank it before) that is just out of this world. I mean honestly, you couldn't find a hoppier beer if you tried. And if you find one, tell me, I want to try it! Anyways, I actually had this before I had a Dogfish 90 min IPA in a sitting. I'll tell you what, that beer is soooo hoppy that the Dogfish tasted like Coors Light. Like I said, can't say that Bell's is an extreme brewery, but they do make one of the most extreme brews I've ever had.

+100 on Great Lakes as well. Again, not extreme, but their beers are EXTREMELY good!

You might want to consider Sierra Nevada and even The Boston Beer Company (Sam Adams). Sierra Nevada not only has their signature pale ale, they have some other incredible beer. A lot of which never leaves the doors of their brewpub. Boston Beer Company, while considered by the more snobbish to be just short of BMC, is a testament to "extreme brewing" and the entire microbrew movement. Until recently, they held the record for the highest ABV beer.

Come to think of it, you should even consider Budweiser. Producing such a volume of beer that tastes exactly the same no matter where in the world you are is no small feat. Although I'm not a fan of their product, Budweiser definitely does some "extreme brewing".

Finally, how about some of the breweries in the US making either classic Belgian styles like Brewery Ommegang, or ones making wild beer such as Jolly Pumpkin, Russian River and Allagash.

i'd agree on sierra nevada and even add goose island. nothing better than a success story. don't know what you want to fit your description for "extreme brewery", but i know goose island sells a limited every year at 14% ABV
