I have seen this thread on a few other forums and haven't seen it here lately that I can recall...and of course, it is largely dependent on what you can get locally...anywho

What's your favorite overall craft/micro brewery? Not just that one hit wonder...you know, that brewery that you can grab basically any bottle with their label and get something that you are going to enjoy. For me these days:

Numero uno:

Bells

Honorable mentions:
Oskar Blues
Anderson Valley
Weyerbacher
North Coast
SN

Smuttynose is up there. They make an awesome porter that I'm trying to surpass.

Big Sky Brewing. Slow Elk is used to be my favorite till they quit making it. Good thing I have a great clone recipe. Boundary Bay is excellent as well.

Stone. Ruination and 10th Anniversary are the best IPAs I've ever had, and Smoker Porter's the best porter. I've never been disappointed in any of their brews.
