I also like Bristols Winter Warlock Oatmeal Stout. Best stout I have ever had.

I also like Odells 5 barrel pale ale.

This is just way too broad of a question for people who like beer this much

North Coast's PranQster is one of my favorites to drink on tap.

I guess if PBR doesn't count, the microbrewery/restaurant in town makes a fantastic APA called Katy Trail Pale Ale.

I absolutely love the Double IPA there. I only wish they served it pint glasses instead of brandy snifters! It's a great way to start off an evening of pumpkin seed cilantro pizza.

Dark Horse is my new favorite brewery. I've always loved the Crooked Tree, as it is similar enough to another local brewery's IPA to be my favorite, without the a$$hole owner. Then, two weeks ago, I finally got to try the Double Crooked. It was perfect!! This is what an IPA should be. If your beer has more hops than alcohol, then I like your beer . If I don't feel like IPA my backup is Final Absolution from Dragonmead in Warren, MI.

I'm a big fan of Sierra Nevada beers, especially the ones on tap at their pub here in town. However, I don't think they really qualify as a "micro" brewery per se. At this point, they've become so big they are just shy of a macro brewery...especially since last year they added even more production.

But last year I went to a little place up in McKinleyville, CA called Six Rivers Brewery. Nice little pub overlooking the coast, and inexpensive but good food. But the best part about that place was their Kona Moon Porter. I had to take a big growler to go it was so good. Their other beers were also very good, including a Chili Pepper Ale I fully expected to dislike. I think what I like about them is that their brewing area is just off the main tap room, and they brew it up in pretty small batches. I think these small batches keep the flavor of the beers variable, and I appreciate the variety.

I used to like it more when Sierra Nevada was smaller, and their Pale Ale would taste just a bit different for each batch they made. Their seasonals are still different year to year, but I miss the smaller brewery. That being said, I'm very impressed with SNs consistency and their commitment to responsible brewing. They've done a lot for the community here and are incredibly environmentally friendly. Last year they brought in hydrogen fuel cell generators and a huge array of solar panels to power the whole brewery. It's pretty cool that even as a large company, they are willing to sacrifice some profit for the good of the environment.

Somebody listed Bell's and that reminds me, Bell's Hopslam is the bomb. I live like two seconds away, so I can get it on tap. Its only like Feb and Mar beer though I think.
