I prefer to use my palate and my nose to make such decisions.

Why is Stone afraid to put the word Escondido on their product?

I follow the following rules:

1. Is it local? I only drink beer that is brewed close to where I am purchasing it.
2. Is it organic? I won't drink a beer that isn't using the safest ingredients.
3. Is it either a lambic or an IPA? I will only drink beers that have a noticeable depth of flavors.

That's it. I don't mess around with unhopped beers unless they are sour lambics. The blandest I'll go is Stone's Double Bastard ale.

American breweries?

I'm sure the beer I want isn't on there.

I seriously am unsure if this is a masterfully crafted troll, or you are an uber-hipster who should be flagged as such... I NEED TO KNOW

I love my local breweries here in PA and new ones just seem to keep opening up. The market is going to be over saturated soon but I know at least a couple of the local ones will be around after the bubble pops.

Interesting. Three Notch'd is on there, and they only opened a few months ago, but Starr Hill is not...

Thats because San Diegans have been desperately grasping for something, anything, to cling to ever since Richard Nixon died.

Since it is AAG, i'm going with a 10/10 here.  That was impressively done.

By the way, what happens if you don't live near Stone (like, say, the opposite coast)?  Can you still have a Double Bastard?

Going to have a tough time keeping  this up to date here in CO right now. New brewery just opened up on Friday in Westminster. Missing Odd 13 in Lafeyette.
 
2014-01-13 04:25:56 PM
They got Chattahoochee on their next to the Cannon in Columbus, GA.  The problem with this map is that it doesn't differentiate between established and brand new breweries that may or may not exist in a year.

The Cannon - Great beer, great prices, great restaurant.  Just expanded their brewery and has been in town for a while.

Chattahoochee Brewing Company - Barely open (if they are).  No kitchen or actual bar.  I can't even tell from their website if they actually make beer yet.

It's on tap at a Mellow Mushroom a half hour from me. And a buddy of mine always texts me a picture if he finds it in a store.

The us has some great brewing, but it's held back by its stupid taste bud destroying trend of overhopping everything. A fad fed by idiots who think that absurd bitterness is "depth of flavor".

Seriously, its like dismissing a gourmet meal as bland and not having flavor because it's not drenched in crazy Harry's gut busting "ring of fire" hot sauce.

THIS. Randomly found Cannon after moseying through Columbus after hiking around Pine Mountain. Stop by for a burger and pint anytime I'm near Columbus now.

Wait, is the pride of Warrenville, IL (aka Two Brothers Brewing) included on this map?

(Checks map)

OK, then. Carry on.

Wow. Haven't heard that name in many years. I was a very frequent customer at MM in Sandy Springs in the late 70s/early 80s.
 
2014-01-13 04:33:30 PM
Wow, I'm surprised at how current this list is.  They have Galaxy Brewing Co. of Binghamton listed - they only opened a few months ago.  I'm impressed.  More are opening soon though, so it'll be interesting to see how long it takes for them to be added.

The Bruery's Tart of Darkness has converted me to sours.  I have seen the light.  Those are some damn tasty beers.
