Hey, I'm heading to Phoenix in a few weeks from New England and I'm hoping to bring a few things back we can't get here. Being an IPA guy Russian River would be amazing, but I understand they don't ship there. Anyone have any suggestions of what to look for that isn't available on the East Coast?

Thanks!

If you can get anything from Stone Brewery....get it. I don't think they make anything bad. I know my friends in the midwest wanted me to ship them stones all the time when I lived in SD.

You get New Belgium products out there? Every time someone crossed the big muddy divide They had to bring back Fat Tire until a couple years ago.

Also, New Belgium has a tasty sour called La Follie.

Thanks for the input! I'll definitely look for New Belgium, I've heard a lot about them, same goes for Kiltlifter. We have Stone and Laguanitas here, and I often pick them up

New Belgium has a beer finder on their web site.

I really like Avery Brewing as well, but I don't know what their distribution is.

Ballast point soon sculpin is one of my favorite ipas

If you can find Russian River blind pig is a must as well

Oskar blues makes awesome beers in a can

Deschutes is another great brewery if you don't get them east
