That is like asking " who is the most beautiful woman in the world?".

Too many good choices to pick just one.

I haven't been to many but Sierra Nevada was thoroughly impressive. Beautiful from the inside out, energy efficient, and the people were super friendly.

Oh yeah, they make tasty beer too.

Are we talking beers or the actual building itself? My favorite brewery tour I've done was at Allagash, the people there were very friendly, the tour was very informative, and man, their barrel aging rooms a sight (and smell) to behold. They also have monitors playing vintage beer ads in the bathrooms.

As far as beer itself goes, I'll have to agree with beergolf on this one. Just too many choices.

That's a tough call as there are breweries that I really like 1-2 of there beers but there are others that I like most of the beers, but not as much as I like the 1-2 from the other guys.

We have nano-brewery in Atlanta called Burnt Hickory and I really like everything I've tried from them. They do a lot of very creative brews and they are just getting to where they are starting to bottle, previously only available at the brewery or locally on draft. I think they'll do very well when they start to get some exposure.

Bath Ales from Bath, UK for "proper" beers.

Probably The Kernel from London for the fancy US style nonsense but that's more due to availability, I've tried more of them more often.

Short's Brewery in Bellaire, MI. A bunch of reasons. I grew up there. I've seen how much the town has changed now that it has become a beer destination and not just a ski resort destination. Their beers kick ass. They have 20 beers on tap, typically, if not more. I've had a lot of interesting and creative brews there, and learned a lot about beer in the process. Also, a relative of mine once owned the building when it was a hardware store, several years before becoming Short's.
