Which brewery is more solid than Sierra Nevada?
 
I mean lets be honest; is there any brewery more solid? They cover several different styles and they do them all well to very well. If I could only drink one brewery's beer for the rest of my life, it'd be theirs...

I'd either go with S/N or Smuttynose. I don't think I've had a bad beer from either one.

Only one brewery, for the rest of my life? New Glarus.

Not a SN fan. If I couldn't choose New Glarus (since they don't distribute outside of WI) then I would probably pick Great Divide Brewing Co. They have a great range, and all are executed magnificently. St Bridgett's Porter for when I want something dark, Denver Pale Ale for light, and if I feel like drinking hops till I vomit, there's always Titan IPA.

I'd agree with Smutty if I liked their Summer wheat beer. I didn't enjoy that but they do make several very good beers...

Anchor comes to mind, I enjoy everything they brew.

Their summer beer ruins it for me, but yeah they're pretty damn good...

I hadn't tried that yet. I'm not a big wheat beer fan though. Swmbo and I have been trying to slow down on the commercial buying since we went on the barleywine kick a couple of weeks ago. One of which was Smutty and it was very good.
:D

I love Sierra Nevada. They offer my alltime favorite beer in the pale ale. Their wheat, celebration, big foot, stout and porter are all fantastic. I loved their wet hop harvest ale. Their esb was good.

I am not a fan of their summer lager.

Anchor is along the same lines with me. Their liberty ale may be my second favorite beer ever. I am not a fan of their summer beer either.

Deschutes Brewery.

I have always especially enjoyed Mirror Pond, but their Black Butte Porter is great, Obsidian Stout is also very nice. I pretty much like all of their stuff.

Anyone else had The Abyss? It's a stout that they only release once per year, in the fall. I wouldn't drink a bunch of it, but it's quite tasty. I think they said it won best Stout at the World Beer Champs last year.

I tried Mirror Pond a few weeks ago, and wasn't terribly impressed. Not bad mind you, but just not a standout.

Just this past Sunday though, I tried the Black Butte Porter and was really impressed. It didn't hurt that I was brewing a stout a the time, and in a "dark beer" state of mind!
