All right lets hear it, if you could only have beers from one which one would it be.

For me Breckenridge brewery. Its the one company that I have yet to have a bad beers from. And their 471 IIPA is awesome.

I really like New Holland. Their Dragon's Milk is the nector of the gods. I've tried almost all of their offerings available locally and have enjoyed them all.

I know you always get the "woah they suck" kinda responses from these threads & it's nothing personal but I just don't get Breckenridge. The 471 small batch and Vanilla porter are good solid beers. I hear their small batch ESB is really good too. Had their sampler case: oatmeal stout, summerbright, avalanche & trademark EPA. Of those, only the oatmeal stout was decent & the rest were mediocre at best.

Now Bells OTOH.....

I know it's kind of a trendy pick, but I really love the beers from Rogue, especially their big beers.
And now we go AG!

Haven't done the micro brew in quite some time, I've had one here and there when I don't have any homebrew or need to sample a style. When I was in Germany I drank pretty much just belgians and germans.

If I had to go off past experience, I'd probably say Unibrau (sp?) makes some really good beers, and I'll always pick at least one up if I see it on a shelf somewhere..

I've only been blessed to try three of their beers, but given that they're three of the best beers I've ever tasted, gotta throw all kinds of love to Vinnie at Russian River.

Among more local-micros, Ray McNeill puts out some pretty phenomenal beers up in Bratt. Best ESB I've ever tasted.

I change from time to time because I love'em all, but now I'd say Southampton or Troegs. There are always my standbys too - Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, and Anchor...

Green Lane Brewing

Primary = Evan!'s Special Bitter
On Deck = EdWort's Porter / American Amber

EdWort's Haus Pale Ale Count

Three Floyds they are a half of an hour from my house. I go to the brew pub often. I always have a fridge full of their beers. I like almost everything they make huge fan of the Alpha King, Pride and Joy, Gumballhead, Romuless, and the Fantabulous. They have definatley influenced the beers I have brewed. I love hops and their beers are definatley hoppy. So if I could only drink one microbrew it would be them hands down.
