5 can't-go-wrong breweries

  • Mar 5, 2010
If you pick almost any beer made by any of these breweries, you almost can't go wrong.  You're almost guaranteed an amazing brew!

Samuel Smith
They are just a great brewery. Their Nut Brown Ale and Taddy Porter are great!

Young's brewery
It was a toss up between Young's and Samuel Smith being #2, and Samuel Smith won out simply because I tried Young's Waggledance honey ale once and didn't like it. (But I don't really like honey beers anyway). Young's does make one of my old favorite beers: Young's Luxury Double Chocolate Stout
4
Brooklyn Brewery
I am even more new to their products than I am to Dogfish Head, but so far the beers I've tried have been great!

Rogue ales
Rogue doesn't mess around when it comes to making beer. They make big bold beers with great flavors! They're #5 on this list because the one beer of theirs I tried and didn't like was heinous! I tried the smoke ale years ago and absolutely hated it....even poured the rest down the drain. I thought it was like drinking smoked pork at the time.

Dogfish Head is one of my favorite micro breweries. They offer such great varieties.

I still need to try Young's and Samuel smith to completely agree with this review. But you're quite right about Rogue, Dogfish head, and Brooklyn. I still can't get over how pleasantly floral the Brooklyn lager tastes and smells. I thought Brooklyn's Pennant Ale was 'meh' the first time I tried it, but I had a rookie palate for beers at the time.

I really enjoy Rogues brew. I made sure that their location on Flanders in Portland was on our most recent drive through that area. Came home with many souvenirs! Thanks for all of your lists and info, it's been great reading.
