Nice to see Anderson Valley on there. Boont Amber is one of my faves.

Deschutes Obsidian Stout

Yay Oregon!

FTFA:  I must be honest-I've never been a huge fan of Rogue beer.

Why would you say that? What Rogue beer do you think is subpar? Let's leave out that godawful Voodoo Donut one for a minute. What other beer of theirs makes you stop and say "nope, this beer company doesn't know what they are doing"?

God I farking love New Holland. And it gets no love because nobody cares about Michigan. New Glarus just hogs all the spotlight in the Great White North.

I am a little surprised Duck Rabbit didn't get mentioned.
 
2014-03-17 12:37:12 AM  
I could drink Sierra Nevada for hours.
 
2014-03-17 12:38:00 AM  
I still love Walking Man Brewery's Black Cherry Stout.

Sadly, I've only ever found it at Henry's in Portland, OR

Why hello, viral marketing. Nice to see you here.

Always been a fan of Bell's Kalamazoo and Double Cream Stout.

I don't care for stouts, but it as good to see some Brewers i like in the list. Deschutes, and Schlafly  have  some good stuff.
 
2014-03-17 12:49:59 AM  
As long as it is not a another farking IPA.

Avery Czar should have warranted mention.

I think there's a pretty big difference between "stouts you can find in America" and "American stouts", subby
 
2014-03-17 12:57:42 AM  
Jeez who gives shiat. There are a lot of beers out there to fit just about any taste. Why dies it have to be a competition all the time??

Had to give up drinking 4 years ago due to cirrhosis but if the end of the world comes, I'm having a Sierra Nevada.

Call me old fashioned but I'm still a fan of the classics.

Stouts for the corned beef and cabbage in the crock pot, and the amber/reds for the gullet.

Someone mentioned Anderson Valley Amber- that will do nicely!

Terminator Stout is the only reason I go to McMenimans.

As for Obsidian Stout, I love that stuff. It's my goto when I eat BBQ. It also works great in homemade chili. I like all of Deschutes brews though. Great beers at decent prices.

This thread had me missing the PNW, but only for the beer... never cared to much for most people out that way for one reason or another.

It pops up at The Horse Brass. I think I was there last Thursday.

BKITU:

Yup, that.

Founder's Breakfast Stout and Left Hand Milk Stout are my two faves.

BlueStar Oatmeal Stout SaTX. So great.

Thanks.

I'm down in Eugene, so I've got lots of good beer down here, although I've only got Busch in the house at the moment, cause I am out of the good stuff.

//Keep cheap and good stuff on hand.
 
2014-03-17 01:20:15 AM  
Southern Tier's Creme Brulee Stout is my OMFG brew. Seriously, how do they do that?
 
2014-03-17 01:24:38 AM  
Terrapin's Wake-N-Bake.  Brilliant coffee oatmeal stout out of Athens, GA.
 
2014-03-17 01:24:54 AM  
How can they possibly exclude the Dark Lord Imperial Stout from Three Floyds??????

People travel to their brewery from all over the US on the one day a year it's available.

About to whine about my favorite, then I saw the author limited this to mass market beers.  Article is irrelevant.

Not kidding. This should be on that list.
 
2014-03-17 01:35:26 AM  
Oh boy we haven't had this thread in nearly a week.
Maybe tomorrow we'll talk about cereals from the 80's or talk about how much New York style pizza sucks.
 
2014-03-17 01:47:00 AM  
These needs to be on the list. It's worth the 81 miles drive each way to stock up.

Surly Darkness. Can't get it many places and it is very seasonal, but if you get the opportunity, be ready to have your mind blown.

When I'm stateside I favor New Holland.


Of coure, I might be a little biased, my cousin works there.

While I do like this guy a tiny bit better:

There really is no excuse to not have NC OR on the list...
 
2014-03-17 02:17:23 AM  
I could finish that list with nothing but michigan brewed stouts.

and honestly, the poet wouldn't be the top.

Snapper Carr: Call me old fashioned but I'm still a fan of the classics.


The foreign extra stout is where it's at. Even living in Dublin I had to go to Saint James's Gate to pick it up. Just my luck though, a couple of months before returning to the states I start seeing in Tesco as they decided to export it again to the States since we ended prohibition. It's the closest to the original formula there is.
 
2014-03-17 02:54:44 AM  
There would probably be more but brewers are too busy trying to make an IPA that can substitute as jet fuel.
 
2014-03-17 02:58:12 AM  
Canadian Breakfast Stout.
Founders.

Hands down best beer I've ever had.

Commercially available, I'll take their Breakfast Stout as an acceptable answer.

Rtfa... I'm okay with The Poet but I think the marketing augments the rating. I knew it was a 'good beer' before I'd even tried it. It's now at my local party store and I don't instinctively reach for it. Totally solid though. Maybe having it not readily available would give me a renewed appreciation.

Our house was gifted two cases of Sierra Nevada in as many weeks, one stout. It's decent. Best... Heck no.
 
2014-03-17 02:59:19 AM  
websites like that need to stop talking about shiat they don't know nothin' about. Seriously, unless it's from BeerAdvocate, don't listen to any top beer lists.

/Don't trust ratebeer either
//Also good to see someone already mentioned Founder's
