This is tough. Right now I’d have to say American Pale Ale by Bluegrass Brewing Company.  I also like Hoptimus by New Albanian Brewing Company.  Obviously I’m partial to local hoppy beers!

Darling Husband and I are big fans of Bourbon Barrel Stout, from Bluegrass Brewing CO. We’re becoming pretty attached lately to a few from Devil’s Backbone, which is near us in VA, and we got a keg of their Vienna Lager for our wedding. There’s a terrific local microbrewery called Jefferson Street that makes a mouthwatering oatmeal stout. And I’ve always liked anything from Brooklyn Brewery, esp their Brown.

How do you determine whether or not a beer is a craft beer?

@AB Bride:  Generally anything under 2 million barrels a year in production.

Although I’ve heard some purists say it also includes distribution (they think it stops being ‘craft’ if it’s make in CA but you can buy it in NY).

I am allergic to barley and good beer is the thing I miss the most!  Redbridge is the best gluten-free option out there, and I can only get it in the US.  It’s like precious gold when I get some.

Our roommate Bruce makes his own beer, and Jon seems to like that stuff a lot. I am not a drinker, however. I love my Diet drinks, and good ‘ol water.

Two of my very favorite beers ever are Big Boss Big Operator (black ale with raspberry) and Skull Coast Dead Man’s Porter. But for overall love, Highland Brewing Company.

I don’t know for sure, but I’m assuming the brewery doesn’t produce more than that:

Beaver Tail Raspberry Ale – Grizzly Paw
