Three Floyds Pride and Joy
SNCA
Rogue Shakespeare Stout
Rogue Brutal Bitter
Stone IPA

Skullsplitter and Victory Golden Monkey get honorable mentions.

One of my all time favorites is Dude's Pliny the Bastid, but I figured I'd stick to commercial for my list. So, you're headed to the USPS, huh?

I think I'm going to have to try this Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale if so many people list it in their top five. Is this like an Oktoberfest?

Has anyone checked out SN's web page for the Celebration Ale. I love the quote from the newspaper. Something like, "Celebration Ale is the best beer ever made in America." Nothing like a superlative statement! I won't go that far, but it is one amazing beer, or at least I remember it that way.

No surprises there.
Yeah, I'll send you one too. Also gotta send you a bottle of the Stone 10th Anniversary IPA. Beer nirvana.

Gotta go with...

Rogue Shakespeare Stout
Fuller's ESB
Bully Porter (I'm from KC, what can I say?)
Boulder MoJo
Fuller's London Porter

In no particular order, and with a number of close 6, 7 and 8's to say the least, tough to throw out absoute favorites, but these are up there.

Also my first post, so here goes...
