Haven’t seen a Micro Brew thread in a while so…

I love the fact that the snobbery of wine drinkers is being supplanted by the faithful of the brewmeister’s trade.

Micro Breweries have morphed into what the media is now calling "Craft Breweries".

I don't care what handle they put on them as long as they keep turning out awesome brews to sample.

My "current favorite" is out of Atlanta, Georgia's Sweetwater Brewery...


Sweetwater IPA, super hoppy with an exotic citrusy finish...what's yours?

I had the Sweetwater IPA a few weeks ago while I was in Atlanta, it is a really nice IPA. I also had a Brazilian beer Xingu, it is a black beer but is very smooth and creamy.

My favorite Micro brewery is Schlafly's in Saint Louis. I used stop there all the time when I still lived in the city. They have a pub attached to the brewery, so you can see the beer being made, and of course it smells amazing in there! My favorite is their Hefeweizen:

Step-son just brought me a bottle of his very first Cascade Pale Ale.
Now, I am not at all a Pale Ale fan, but his was a clean brew, if not a bit "biting" in the aftertaste due to having added too much hops.
A little dash of fresh lemon juice took care of the too-hoppy afterbite.
Lots of home-brewers around the area.

One of the largest Micro's Mcmenamins here serves all of their beers raw. Not pasteurized, they have a Terminator stout that i swear you can't see through with an electron micro scope it will hold a quarter on the head but damn its good. Unfortunately as you can imagine We've got beer snobs here, what is the world coming to.
Three Percent would have heard of them, I like the IPA's also.
Remember beer is a food group and deserves the same respect as Chocolate and Cheese and BBQ.

I guess it's no micro brew, but 'round these parts it's Shiner Bock. As for wine, I only drink the finest boxes...............that is all.

Well, looking at the replies here it sounds like if I ever take the plunge and emigrate to the States I won't be stuck for good dark beer. Terminator and Nitro sound like my kind of tipple!

Flying Dog Brewery out of Colorado has some awesome brews too.

Beers | Flying Dog Brewery

Who ever comes up with their names and graphics would be fun to party with.

Down here you can find them in most well stocked liquor stores or the "Publix" grocery chain.

You want something that'll knock your socks off with Oysters on the half shell or any seafood.

Try
Cave Creek's Chili Beer...not for wussies. Main home page

The concept sounds terrible, but the product is off the hook good!

Oh Dang! Just looked at Cave Creek's website. The brewery in North Phoenix is closed, beer is now produced in Mexico.
