I need to try some Dogfish, you guys all seem to enjoy the 60 and the 120. I haven't seen it too much around here, but I also haven't really dug around at the specialty place.

The 60min is great, the 90min is very good, the 120min is undrinkable IMO. DFH is a very good brewery, but they take lots of risks (which is admirable) and therefore are not solid IMO...

I can't think of a more well rounded brewery than the "Ugly Kettle Brewing Company".
  • The tap room taps are always flowing with 7 different beers.
  • There is the occasional bottle of wood aged IPA or RIS.
  • They have some lighter ABV brews on tap for day time sessions.
  • They have free Triscuits.

Seating is limited, but I always get there early.

I have a confession to make. SNPA is the only SN beer I've ever had and I don't really LOVE it. I guess I have some work to do.

McNeill's Brewery naturally. Sure he's had some issues with quality, but with the new brewery opening, I'm speculating, those issues will come to an end and his brews will be as consistent as they were ten years ago. Besides, I can walk there, and Ray truly makes some fabulous beer.

Do I need a reservation? And can I get a Frequent Drinker punch card?

So far I've had SNPA, SN Porter, SN Anniv Ale, SN Celebr Ale, and I just bought a 6'er of the SN ESB.

PA wasn't bad, but not great. Porter was tasty. Anniv ale was not baaaaad, but the "wrong" hops for my taste, Celebr ale I didn't like much, and the ESB is so-so. It's got great honey/caramely character to it, but it's still too Americanized for me to appreciate it. It's just not QUITE the ESB that I'm used to. *shrug*

If I had to pick one very solid brewery, it would have to be O'Dell brewing.

90 Shilling is very good and available all over the place here in Denver.
The 5 barrel pale is excellent.
The IPA is excellent, with both GABF (2007) and World Beer Cup (2008) gold medals.
The Extra-special red is very tasty, too, but pricey.

I need to hit the tap room the next time I'm in Ft. Collins. Everything I've had has been well-executed. Pity they don't distribute wider.

You can't be serious. I can put you in touch with Bigfoot, ESB, Summerfest, and probably some others. I'll bring some the next time we get together...
