Blue & Gray Brewing Co
Fredericksburg, VA

To be honest I'm undecided about their beer, more malty than hoppy.

I was in Allentown, PA a couple of weeks ago, and missed the chance to try the Nugget Nectar at the hotel bar I was hanging out in. I had already tried two Victory bombers I hadn't had before, the Saison and the 12, before I noticed that they had the NN which I had hear about. So, unfortunately I was well beyond needing a third bomber at that point.

My favorite is Golden Valley. One of the reasons I like it is Mark brews to style and does an extremely good job of it. So many breweries over-hop everything. If I want a hoppy beer, I can order a Bald Peak IPA, a Chehalem Mtn. IPA, an all-Mt Hood fresh hop IPA or a nice clean APA. Four hoppy beers out of ten taps is reasonable. His Tannen Bomb barley wine and Black Panther RIS are good to have around when it's snowing, or just a bit frosty.

Fine grass-raised beef as well. The only grain the cows get is from the brewery.

Surly Brewing, Minneapolis, MN

The tours are's great too...Omar (the owner), basically stands on a pallet in the middle of his brewery, drinks beer, and tells you how he got there...OK it sounds boring, but it was the best tour I've been on so far.

My favorite, without a doubt, used to be Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, NC, where I went to school for a few years.

Lately, however, I've been a bit disappointed with some of their offerings. I don't know if their quality has gone downhill or if my tastes are changing that drastically, but many of the beers I used to like no longer have the same appeal to me, nor do they even seem to have the same flavors. They're just a little -- different.

Now I've found myself enjoying the porters and stouts of another North Carolina brewery in Duck Rabbit brewing. They make a delicious porter and milk stout.

Bottom line, though, is that I don't feel I've sampled enough of one brewery's offerings to proclaim any one as my favorite. In time, I suppose.
