Ok, I could drink Old Burnside, Hooker, Cottrell, and the other locals all day long: theres nothing like good, fresh, local beer. But is there any out-of-state beer that you can just grab, knowing that it will be awesome?
For me, I'd have to go with Stone and Victory Breweries as my "go-to" beers when I'm in doubt. Stone's ales are just divine. Packed with flavor, complexity, and finishing smooth, I've never tried a variety of Stone that I didn't like. I know that some people could take or leave Victory, but I personally love their big, loud beer style that produces one of my favorite beers ever: Victory Storm King Imperial Stout.
What about you guys? What are your "go-to" breweries?
hmmm I would have to say Great Divide Brewing is one of my favorite breweries. I am sad to hear they are pulling out of CT, but atleast it gives me a reason to travel to Table & Vine in MA.
I believe in the Yeti!!
