My wife is in Seattle visiting her sister and, although I'm familiar with some of the breweries that way, I am looking for opinions on specialty beers/bombers that she could bring back for me that I cannot get in Colorado. I could do some research, but I'd like some recommendations from this forum. So, if anyone is familiar with beers in the area, your recommendation is appreciated. Thanks

There are as you know quite a few local microbreweries here in Seattle, many choices. Are you thinking about any particular types or styles? There is a great place in West Seattle, The Beer Junction, http://www.thebeerjunction.com/ that probably has the best selection of anywhere in the city. The owner, Morgan, is very knowledgeable and happy to help with selections. If you ever get to Seattle I'd try to make it by. Most of the large supermarkets, Thriftway, QFC, Whole Foods, ect. typically stock a decent selection from our local microbreweries.

Thanks for the link. That place looks awesome and I'll send her there for a few that I saw on the site. As far as styles, I'm less concerned with style and looking for special/limited releases from local breweries that are only distributed locally, and you think is a fantastic beer. For example, Bligh's Barleywine by Dry Dock Brewing Co. However, double IPA's and Russian Imperials would be at the top of the list. Thanks for the help.

Elysian Brewing is awesome. I also like Pike very much. Walking Man is also awesome. Don't know about special releases, or if you can get those in your area.

Elysian is good. We get some of their stuff here. I've had the Idiot Sauvin and Avatar Jasmine before. I forgot they were out there. Have to have her grab me something from them for sure. Not familiar with Pikes.

Two words. Mac & Jack's. Awesome beer that isn't even available in stores. You can find it on tap all over here, or you can get growlers from the brewery.

I thought about that, just not sure how a growler would fare on an airplane. Anyone have any experience with that?
