Sierra Nevada, whether its regular rotation, seasonal, or special releases. I like the Great Lakes offerings also, except the Commodore IPA which gives me heartburn for some reason.

When I can get it, Heady Topper. Hill Farmstead stuff is good,but waiting 2 hours to get your growlers filled is nuts. I like Otter Creeks black IPA.

I like most made by Lagunitas, but I recently tried Heretic's Torment and Chocolate Hazelnut Porter, and now those are my favorites.

Triplehorn's Cascadian Dark Ale at the moment. The great thing about the craft beer revolution is that almost all craft breweries make good beer. Some are great, and some are mindblowing. But just about all of them are at least pretty good (please ignore the ignoramuses on sites like beeradvocate).

Fall is upon us, the BEST season for beer. I'm sure I will have 20 new favorites in the coming month or 2.

I wouldn't ignore beer advocate. .. but you have to take the ratings with a large shot of whiskey. I find reading the tasting notes of a variety of posters can give you a decent idea of the high and lowlights of a beer one might be thinking of trying.

I also am not a fan of BeerAdvocate. I take personal notes of beers I drink (I don't publish them) and I do my best not to bring biases in, which is obviously difficult. I feel the majority of people that rate beers on Beer Advocate to be bowing to peer pressure or social constructs on how to rate beers. I don't really look at the site any more, and when I read an article that says how highly rated something is on BA, I discount it in terms of beer quality, I think of it as just a fad.

Was in New Mexico for a little getaway and tried this local beer brewed by a Santa Fe brewery:
What's your favorite craft beer?-beer.jpg

It was excellent. I'm a big IPA fan, and my drink of choice is Sierra Nevada Torpedo. This beer stands up to all of the IPA's have had so far. Very good stuff. Has a good amount of piney/resin and a bit of pineapple at the end.

any IPA's from Alpine or Green Flash (both San Diego breweries). For heavier maltier Belgian style, I like Lost Abbey/Port Brewing, Ommegang, some Avery bottlings, some Bruery (the limited edition brews). I'm trying to find more Crooked Stave wild yeast beers, but they've got spotty distribution in SoCal.
