  • What Seattle beers should I look for locally? I may not get to the game and if not I want my Super Bowl party to have a taste of Seattle. What are some of your favorites?

  • Big Hoppa from Big Al Brewing! Not as delicious as the tears from the Broncos fans come Sunday but pretty damn close!

  • Manny's or Mac & Jack's African Amber. They are very similar, and both amazing.

    Also, I recommend to anyone and everyone that they hit up Black Raven Brewing in Redmond. GREAT brewery. They are in a business park in Redmond, though, so hours are kind of limited for a bar. http://www.blackravenbrewing.com
    Rams bet status: honored. Bradford still sucks.

  • Depends on your location. If you are outside of Washington most Seattle beers are probably not distributed in your area. Where are you?

    I own a restaurant with 120+ beers on the menu. I believe the best beers on the planet are brewed on the West Coast of the United States. But, and I hate to say it, but Colorado is really good at making beer, too. But screw those fools! I'm taking all CO. beers of the menu!

  • Colorado does have Boulder Beer. Their Mojo brew is delicious.

    But Elysian kills them anyway. Just don't drink Elysian Loser this weekend. Bad vibes.

  • I am in Idaho...and looked for Brown Box Wine and cant find it. I looked at Freddymeyers and it is not in that area. They do have Killians Red here but I know that is a Coors Product or in their product line. I may try the Co-op in Boise. Never know. We do get a lot of the Washington Wines here too. Curious what beers we may have here that would be Seattle based.

    Just to be clear, are you looking for bottles? Or Kegs?

    (And for those who haven't realized this already, the OP is in New Jersey and wants a taste of Seattle, so he'd need to be able to purchase these locally in New Jersey)

    Just about got a sixer of that last week, but hesitated. I'll give it a shot this weekend

    I'll throw Pike Scotch into the mix, one of my faves. Distribution might be hard for Seattle beers back east, but I would guess that Pike has a good showing.

    Can get Manny's over on the east side in Tri-Cities. I plan on having a growler or 2 filled up for this weekend.

  • New Jersey is not known for having package stores with wide selections of regional/micro/craft brews from around the country. With the exception of the grocery stores, everything is very 'mom and pop' (limited selection), and the microbrews carried in the grocery stores are mostly from that region, as the Adirondacks/upstate NY/etc. is prime brewing country, much like CO and OR. So you're going to find 'local' beers like Saranac rather than stuff from the west coast, let alone Seattle. So unless you go into NYC where the in-store selection is better (and absurdly priced), your best bet is to just keep your eyes peeled for either Redhook (as prev. mentioned in this thread) or Pyramid. Another thing you might want to try doing is looking up some Seattle-based brewing companies online and seeing if they have a section on their website which allows you to search for where their stuff is sold. Most moderately-evolved brewing companies have that on their websites now (I know Pyramid does), which makes it really easy.

  • The Fremont beers are all pretty tasty. I don't like their IPA so much actually, a little too flowery for me -- but it's still a solid choice among a few other good varieties.

    Got myself a 22 of Stone Best By DIPA for the game this week. Also brewed some of my own amber ale a few weeks back that should be ready any day now.

  • Elysian Brewery puts out the best beers locally. If you like hoppy brews, they have an IPA by the name Savant. It would have to be in my top 5 of all time. Usually it is harder to find but my local QFC had a few 22's last week (I bought about half of 'em). Elysian also does a seasonal winter ale called Bifrost which is probably my second favorite thing about winter (The first obviously being our beloved Seahawks).

    One brewery that I have recently been appreciating is Odin Brewing Company. They have a nice selection and I have enjoyed most of what I have tried. If you like Belgian beers, theirs is called Thor's Equinox. It is definitely the best Belgian beer I have had.

    I know many people love Manny's, but the Lucille IPA is also made by Georgetown Brewery and it is most excellent (also one of my top 5).

    Honestly, Seattle has so many fantastic breweries that it would be hard to make a bad decision. Just find something that looks good/interesting and more than likely you will enjoy it.
