3) Weyerbacher
4) Victory
5) Rock Bottom
6) Selins Grove Brewing Co.
7) Bullfrog Brewing Co.
8) Barley Creek Brewing Co.
9) Ottos Pub and Brewery
10) Bube's (if they got a new headbrewer? - at the Catacombs - Mt. Joy)
11) Sligh Fox
12) Market Cross Pub (brews 2-3 house beers in addition to a great selection of others)
13) Lancaster Brewing Co.
I'm probably forgetting a few...

There is also a few pubs nearby with a good selection (20+ Taps, 75-100-150+ Bottles). Zeno's in State College. Brewhouse Grille in Camp Hill. Market Cross in Carlisle.

Etc.

Unfortunately a lot of those mentioned above are brew-pubs only (some smaller scale than others) or don't distribute with a very long arm (ex// Appalachian distributes but probably only the nearby tri-state type area)...
That's accessibility to east and west is prb one of the nice things about you being in the central part of the state. Selingsgrove is quite a hike for me.

That's unfortunate... the Selins Grove brewpub is one of a few of its kind. None of the other 15-16 we've named off in PA are the same as the small, little, dimly-lit pub, colonial feel pub in Selinsgrove. They make some great brew though!!

Portland, OR.

Don't think there is a bigger beer town than Portland. Last I heard we had maybe 50-60 breweries total.

Portland is amazing for beer. It is the only town that tempts me to move from San Diego.

New Glarus,

Point Brewing Co.,

Sprecher,

Lakefront,

Huber,

Tyrannea,

Capital,

a bunch if brewpubs,
and a host of others I can't think of right now

Little Rock is not a Beer town and Arkansas is not a beer state. We have a handful of brewpubs and one micro (that I don't care for). It's the Bible belt. Although, we are better than some other sin the belt.

BTW I live in a dry county. The closest town is dry. But my zip code is for a small town just across the county line with all the liquer stores we run to.

Corpus is deffinatly NOT a beer town...

It's barely even a college town!

The only HBS we have here is a tiny sh ithole liquor store.

There is B&J's Pizza though that is pretty well stocked, besides that nearly everyone drinks Budlight or Corona...MAYBE Dos Equis

There are two brewpubs within walking distance, the Powerhouse and the Ram (Bighorn brewery), and then Seattle is 40 miles to the North. Issaquah and Bellingham have some fantastic breweries too, and the allmighty mecca of Portland, OR is only a 3 hour drive.

EDIT: Almost forgot Redmond! The Puget Sound is great beer territory.
