How in the world have I missed this thread for so long?
Most of the beers I have in the PNW are local microbrews from either Western Washington or the Portland area as I'm a huge IPA fan, but I'll also do authentic German beers and enjoy Belgians from time to time. (As a complete side note, is anyone planning on going to Oktoberfest in September? It's the 200 year anniversary in 2010!)
My current favs are:
- Ninkasi's Tricerahops (a favorite since this summer)
- Diamond Knot IPA (a favorite for the last two years)
- Georgetown Brewing's Manny's Pale Ale (this has been a favorite for 3 years)
- Rogue's Dead Man IPA (a favorite for a year)
If you enjoy IPA and have the ability, I highly recommend these.
