    Stone Mocha IPA has a very special place in my heart. I'm also very fond of Pumpkinator from St. Arnold's in Houston as well.

    I'm from Australia, so my knowledge of craft American beers is... well.. probably not as good as many of you!

    My favourite US beer is definitely Lost Coast Brewery's Indica IPA from California. Banging hops and the branding is just beautiful. I have a couple of their marketing artworks framed in my house!

    Best local brew (Melbourne):
    Hargreaves Hill Brewing Co. ESB. Its the absolute tits. I could drink it for days on end.

    Best Euro:
    Delirium Tremens Belgian Strong Ale. 15% ABV, served in a stone coated bottle. What's not to like?

    Surly Furious or Over-Rated, most IPA's are good in my book though

    I love craft beer! I'm lucky enough to live in a small college town with four of its own small breweries. I love their stuff, but if I'm drinking bigger more well-known craft beers, some of my favorites are Westbrook's Mexican Cake, Hill Farmstead's Brother Soigne, Alchemist's Heady Topper, Firestone Walker's Parabola, any number of Wicked Weed's sours. This weekend, I was at a bottle share and got to finally try some Funky Buddha. That was amazing, too! Yay beer!

    Lawson's Sip of Sunshine is excellent! If you ever get a chance to lay your hands on some of Fiddlehead's Mastermind, try it! It's in the same style as SoS, but I think it's even better! This summer we got to their brewery on a release day and got to try it super-fresh. That style of IPA is mindblowingly good when it's fresh!
  • This time of year, Shiner Holiday Cheer is my fave. But a tip of the hat to Genesee Brew House's Salted Caramel Chocolate porter and Leinenkugel Cranberry Ginger Shandy!

    My favorite of late has been "The Bruery" in Orange County CA.

    Mischief - Belgian Style Strong Ale
    Trade Winds - Belgian Style Triple with Thai Basil
    Or Xata - Kind of an oddity, a beer that tastes and feels like a Mexican or Spanish Horchata

    They also have a sister brewery called "Bruery Terreux" which is definitely worth a look if you are into Sours or what some might call Oddities.

    Deschutes Brewery, Obsidian Stout. When I'm in the mood for a dark beer that I know I like, that's my fav! I'm also a home brewer and make a Chocolate Oatmeal Stout that is very good (if I do say so myself).

    Their autumn maple is pretty good for a nice fall treat

    Too bad you're not my neighbor. I've been giving away cases of Bruery stuff. I used to be a huge fan.

    @SideshowTam Its 25 years since I was in Oz. Had a great time and Just loved the local sayings - that would get me thrown out of most business in my little town.
