    What beers are brewed in your locale ? . Here in Kamloops there is a brewery called Bear Brewing, and they make Polar, Brown and Black Bear beer and also Albino Rhino Ale (the house beer for Earls).

    Crudeau, you can't go wrong drinking Red Hook! Definitely one of the finest US brewers.
    Lot's of micobrewery/restaurants here in the Twin Cities. I've got two of them and a home-brew supply store within walking distance. The best beer made in Saint Paul is Summit, a small brewery that makes pale ale, IPA, porter and a rotating seasonal brew. Currently winter ale, next is maibock (one of the best beers I've tasted) then hefe weizen in the summer. Sad thing is, I can't remember what their fall beer is. They were serving it at their annual party at the brewery, all I remember is it was good!

    Hey Dick, don't forget Catamount (out of Vermont)!!!! Here in the Chicago and Midwest area we have lots of great breweries such as: Goose Island (Honker's Ale), Bell's (Oberon), and numerous others.

    This is Wisconsin... my post would rival the length of Elakin's Italian sojourn posts if I listed them all! Some decent brews in Milwaukee, but if you ever get a chance to try any of the New Glarus brews, go for it!

    In Chico, CA (my alma matter and place I call "home") we brew what I consider the finest American Ale, Sierra Nevada.

    Going "home" this weekend, can't wait. :)

    Great food at Sierra Nevada as well logg...my sister lives in Redding, and folks have a place in Tahoe, we like to go a little out of our way and stop in Chico for some fine brew and burgers.

    Dick, I had no clue that Catamount went belly-up. Im glad to hear that Harpoon bought them, I just hope that they don't mess with any of the recipes. I love Catamount Porter!!!

    New Orleans has a brewery that produces a beer called "Dixie." It speaks for itself.
