Couple of winter favorites: Samuel Smith's organic chocolate stout.  Yes it sounds foofy but damn is it good.
Reverend Potter's baltic porter brewed by prodigal in effingham, nh real good also. Only available in state from what i hear.

On a Sunday where there was nothing better to do then stay away from malls and watch football - a few beers spread out over the games (only one of each)!

Six Point Resin DIPA - a really great beer that's very floral in the nose

Founders Double Trouble DIPA - one of the better brewers around and all their beers are good

Green Flash Palate Wrecker DIPA - a bit more malt backbone than the above beers. Definitely should be your last beer of the night!

All three being a hop heads delight!

As an aside - skied three days last week in Colorado and had the best vanilla infused porter ever at the Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company (one of my favorite brewpubs anywhere as I've been going there for almost 15 years).

John,

Since I ski at Copper Mt mostly on my way back to Glenwood Springs where I stay I always stop at the Crazy Mountain Brewery off of 70 in Edwards and hang out in their tasting room. Great vibe and great people. I think their coffee stout is awesome (though on beer sites it gets poor reviews) along with their Pale Ale. Had a Holiday Ale that was very good too!

Have you been to Crazy Mountain Brewery?

There's another place in Edwards I've been too but have never gone back - can't think of the name.

I had no idea this was there!  I've driven by it more times than I can count and didn't even know it existed.  I live in Effingham!  Thanks!

They don't offer tours. :(  But, I'm wondering if we can get a tour through the FD- we're starting to pre-plan certain places. This might need to be one!

I've enjoyed the 1st two... very good. Will have to look for the Green Flash Palate Wrecker, I've enjoyed their Vert beer.

Speaking of out of town breweries I just got back from Mt. Rose Nevada last week and found an awesome brewery in Reno. Great Basin Brewery... will definitely hit that place up anytime I am in that area!

My minor contribution to the thread...

For anyone that is or will be around Portland, Navarre Res in the Old Port is more than worth a visit.  They only serve beer, and the list is simply mind-blowing.

We were there a week and a half ago, which prompted me to grab a 6 pack of Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale.  1/2 of that pack is heading to IN for my father to enjoy. :)

I also recently had a single Magic Hat Saint Saltan and thought it was quite good too.

...I'd say a Lagunitas New Years is a pretty damn good choice! Today's after climb pints (3 of them) was Founders Porter! Yummy and probably second best I've had. Behind that Glenwood Canyon Brewing vanilla infused Porter.

And folks - you've got to go to Kathleen's Cottage in Bristol if you climb at Newfound Ledge (which was in great shape today).
