Legunitas. Great malt and hop profiles, to my taste of course.

Although my east coast location limits availability to some of the best west coast and Midwest brewery's. Bells, Russian river, etc.

It's so hard to pick just one! I'd have to say my favorite is Boneyard in Bend, OR.
Primary 1: IIPA(Simcoe/Citra)
Primary 2: California Common
Secondary 1: Infected batch with Lactobacillus
Bottled: HBC 342 XPA, WLP670 Saison
Kegged: Orange Blossom Honey Ale, Red Ale

I shotgun heady topper.

I'll have to put my vote in for Sierra Nevada. While I wouldn't claim any of their beers are my absolute favorite, all of their brews are mighty tasty and the have a huge selection and seasonals to keep it fresh.

Three Floyd's. I don't even want to know how much money I've dropped for their beer.

Mine would probably be Three Floyd's if I still lived in Indiana.. Bristol if I lived in Colorado Springs just because of the atmosphere.

But, for my overall impression of everyone of their selections -- Oskar Blues
Keg 1- Stone Espresso Russian Imperial Stout Clone Keg 2- Stone Ruination IPA Clone
Keg 3- Hard Apple Cider Keg 4- APA
Fermenting Away - Old Chub Clone - Another Ruiniation - Another Stone RIS Clone - Belgian Strong

Big fan of Dogfish of course. Locally, Victory has a huge selection of very good beer. But if I had to pick one, it would be Firestone Walker. I can't tell you the smile I get when I find a bottle or two of their anniversary ale each year. They are barrel aging and blending masters!
Primary: Black IPA
Secondary:Nikko's Wobbly Wine (2014)
Kegged: Belgian Pale Ale w/Citra, Classic American Pils, Spring Saison
Bottled: Nikko's Wobbly Wine (2012)

New Glarus Brewing in New Glarus, Wisconsin. And they distribute ONLY within the state of Wisconsin! Fortunately, I live only 18 miles south of the border!

Don't sweat the minutiae!
