Not sure how much choice you have. Central waters is good, I love their Satin Solstice. Furthermore's Fatty Boomblatty is pretty good. I recently had Hinterland's Whitecap white IPA which was awesome. I like Kentucky Bourbon Ale (if that's the same brewer), but I know a few people who don't like it.

I would suggest Cisco, boulevard, and of course Southern Tier.
Had a good Cisco trippel the other day and they make great Vodka as well. I haven't tried it yet but someone told me that they float their porter with their vanilla bean vodka at the brewery and its supposed to be outstanding.

Wow, I can't believe I've only tried two on your list. I really like Bridgeport. Widmer; not so much.

I had a Boulevard Wheat just a couple of days ago. Outstanding warm weather beer.

I have some Sixpoint 3 Bean Porter at home. Smooth, full, rich. Very good.

Uinta Sea Legs Baltic Porter - maybe the best porter I've ever had.
