I'm not entirely sure how well-distributed their beers are but moving up here to AK has introduced me to my new favorites. Deschutes Brewing makes excellent brews. The Black Butte Porter is probably my absolute fav but they also make a great stout called Obsidian and Mirror Pond Pale Ale is also pretty tasty. Another company called Big Sky out of Montana makes a Moose Drool Sout that is just heavenly and their Scapegoat Pale Ale is pretty good too.

I Live In Maine And There Are Three Micro Brews That Have Gotten Pretty Commercialized, But They Still Blow The Socks Off Of Any Big Brews I Have Tasted.
One Is Gearys: Pale Ale , Hampshire Ale, And A Great Seasonal Winter Ale. He Started The First Micro Craze In These Woods Probably 20 Years Ago. After I Started To Brew This Is The Pretty Much The Only Beer I Buy.
Two Is Shipyard :export Ale, Longfellow Ale, And A Great Seasonal Brew Summer Ale, This Beer You Can Sit On A Patio And Drink For Hours. This Company Was Another Fore Fronter In The Micro Business Probably 15 Years Ago. He Is Also The First One In Maine To Get Affiliated With A Big Company Miller. He Then Bought It Back And Brought It Back To Its Glory Day.
Third And Final Gritty Mcduffs. This Is The First Place Where I Sat And Pounded Beers And Watched Beer Be Made.
I Also Lived In Seattle About 15 Years Ago And I Used To Drink Red Hook Before Miller Got Its Paws Into It. Back Then I Was A Snotnose Punk Who Drank 30 Buds A Night, So When I Tried This After Six Beers I Was Feeling Good, This Was My First Real Ale Drunk.

That is hard but lately I've been drinking Paulaner's Hefe Weizen when I buy beer from the store. It's a great brew.

Hell yeah! The Black Butte Porter is definitely one of the best porters made in the US. All their beers are great. It's a fun place to stop in if you're ever in Bend. Last time I was up there, they had the BBP cask conditioned

Well, when I go out, I tend to drink Guinness. If you're ever in London, there's a pub just off covent garden called the coach and horses that serves an excellent pint (and does very nice roast beef sarnies at lunchtime as well)

At home, I tend to drink cans of Tanglefoot (badger breweries) Badger's a local brewery close to the town I was brought up in.

Ah, a pint at the pub. Sounds pretty awesome Paul. Maybe one day I'll get to cross the pond to chill in a pub. Right now we're hooked on Mexico for vacations. Hard to beat the white sand, sun and crystal clear waters.....

My new favorite brews are from a micro here in Texas. Real Ale Brewing Company in Blanco, TX. Their Brewhouse Brown Ale, Full Moon Pale Rye Ale, and Shade Grown Coffee Porter (seasonal) are excellent beers. If ever in the Austin, Dallas, Houston area, try to pick some up or go to one of the good tap houses and try a pint!

Cheers!

During the warm months I like visit Squatter's (a brewpub in Salt Lake City) when their Full Suspension pale ale is served cask conditioned. It is an exquisite pint.

Guinness, in my opinion, trancends seasons or the time of day. Sadly, there are precious few pubs in Utah that serve it on tap.

You won't be finding much in the way of Guiness on tap up here but if you want to sit in a brew pub and enjoy a number of wonderful beers then the Moose's Tooth is the place to go in Anchorage. First tap is the monthly small-batch special and is usually gone by the second week but it's always awesome. This month is "Bad Moon a'Weissen" and although I'm not a hugh Hef' fan I loved this stuff. Rarely is seen a school night that I'm tanked but I couldn't get enough of the stuff.
