Unless you live in the Chicago area, you wonít be familiar with Two Brothers Brewing in Warrenville, Illinois (http://www.twobrosbrew.com/
). But their French Country Ale and Imperial Stout are just outstanding - especially the FCA on tap! And, they have a homebrew shop in the same building as the brewery called The Brewer's Coop (http://www.thebrewerscoop.com/
), which is where I buy all my supplies. How cool is that?!
Stoudt's is very good. I can get it here at some of the better liquor stores. And, IIRC, it is one of the few woman-owned micros.
Out of town brews that I canít get where I live: I love Bridgeport Brewing (http://www.bridgeportbrew.com/home.html
) in Oregon, Boulevard Brewing in KC (http://www.blvdbeer.com/
) and St. Arnold (http://www.saintarnold.com/
) when I visit my parents in Houston!
