That's Kansas City, Missourah.
This was the first wheat beer I ever tried. I used to really like their Bully Porter and Pale Ale, too, but only see them now when visiting the family.
Whatever happened to the Flying Monkey Brewery?

Wow, only my top 5 out of 2749 ratings? I will stick to ones that are available still...

1 - Three Floyds Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout
2 - Dogfish Head World Wide Stout
3 - Oskar Blues Ten FIDY
4 - Port Brewing Hop-15
5 - Oskar Blues Old Chub

Maybe I will put a different list up tomorrow.

Great topic...but oh so tough...

Odell's Isolation Ale (clear favorite, however, after that my rankings get hazy and often change)

Usually Wild Ales or Double IPAs

Cheap Beers:
PBR (although maybe the best "everyday" beer around)

Living in Nashville, TN..... Boulevard (pale ale and unfilitered wheat) and Fat Tire used to be my favorite beers in the whole world. ......That was when I had to travel to St. Louis to pick up a sixer. Now that those beers are readily available in Nashville, I have realized that, while these are really good beers, the draw was that they were hard to get. That being said, my favorite beers are as follows (in no particular order):

1. Dogfish Head, 90 minute IPA
2. Boulder Beer, Hazed and Infused
3. Sweetwater 420
4. Bluegrass Brewing Co, Pale Ale (for those who don't know of this --- it's a really good brewery based in Louisville)
5. Most the the beer at Blackstone Brewery and Restaurant here in Nashville --- to be in the restaurant when they add hops to the boiling wort --- that's as close to heaven as you can get

The next five:
Dos Equis Amber
Terrapin Rye Ale
Heineken
Young's Double Chocolate Stout
Anything brewed in my backyard

Oh yeah, forgot to pour one out for my homies...........

Great beer that is now gone --- Bert Grant's Fresh Hop Ale out of Washington state. That brewery closed a few years ago. I've still got one bottle stashed away in my crawl space for posterity

If you rrrreally like beer, maybe try giving homebrewing a shot if you haven't tried it. It's pretty simple to do, all the necessary starter equipment isn't too expensive (relative to how much money you already spend on booze), and if you do a good job you can make some killer brews right in your own kitchen. Some of the best beers I've had lately were homebrewed, we used a German Kolsch and an IPA recipe recently that both turned out GREAT.
