Bell's Brewery Two-Hearted
American IPA; 7%
It's been named one of the best IPAs in the world to the point that Deadspin has even called it "contrarian-proof." The best part? You can get it everywhere, which just goes to show that not every "best beer in the..." whatever has to be something with an allocation of two per 300,000 people.
Bell's Brewery Hopslam
American double/imperial IPA; 10%
Oh, we PROMISED ourselves we wouldn't list more than two per brewery, but come on, in an age where every damn IPA in America has to be "Imperial Hopocalypse Cock-Punch Octuple 827 IBU FML IPA," Hopslam is the rare exception that actually tastes good. Really, really good.
Dragonmead Microbrewery Final Absolution Trippel
Final Absolution is Dragonmead's flagship brew, a Belgian trippel (translation: strong ale) full of banana and clove notes from the Belgian yeast strain and the Belgian Candi Sugar used to brew the beer, which drinks deceptively smoothly but for the fact that it's 10% ABV and after three of these you'll be on the floor. But that only adds to its local fame and notoriety.
