Recently I rediscovered the simple pleasure of having a finally brewed beer or two in the evening. Since I have a low tolerance (I am a cheap date) my goal is to focus on quality over quantity. With that in mind I have been working my way through a variety of craft beers from breweries across America. Below is a list of some of the breweries and their beers that have made it to my “favorites” list.
Note: I am listing the breweries in alphabetical order not in any order of preference and including a link to the Beer Advocate Score for reference. The beers at the top of my favorites list are noted with bold lettering.
