Default PA area craft brews?

My wife's uncle lives in PA and wants to trade a few local brews for a few that are only available down this way. So what is only distributed in that area that I should try?

i don't know what is available to you but:
Victory
Dogfish Head
Ommegang
Brooklyn
Flying Dog

There are a bunch more but for some reason I am drawing a blank right now.

Where in PA? If he's around Philly, there's Yards and Philadelphia Brewing Company that are hard to find outside the immediate area.

Other brewers from the Philly region that you might have trouble finding outside the area:

SlyFox
CricketHill
Flying Fish
Lancaster
Weyerbacher
Victory

Where does he live?

That might seriously impact what he has available to him.

As others have mentioned

Victory, Wyerbacher, Lancaster Brewing Co, Troegs (gotta get you some Troegenator!), Appalachian Brewing Co, all good PA brews.

If you're looking for regionals from the Northeast, then DFH is good, Ommegang (Hennepin is the best), Clipper City

I just assumed Soudts was more widely available, like DFH. Victory is more widely available than I had thought.

If they are anywhere near the Bethlehem or Allentown Brew Works you might want to go for Hopsolutely , an excellent Triple IPA or the Insidious Imperial Stout. They are a little pricey but very good.
