Homer and all, but I have consistently enjoyed pretty much everything I've had from Fremont.
+1 for Barley Brown's. Stopped in on Portland > Denver trip last summer and was blown away. Didn't know a thing about the brewpub, we just got lucky and needed to stop for food as we passed through en route to Boise. Totally unassuming place with fantastic pale ales and IPA's.
Victory makes an awful lot of world class beers, but never gets any love as one of the best craft breweries in the U.S. What's up with that?
I'm a big fan of Beachwood in Long Beach. They make beers that rival other more famous breweries in the state but get nowhere near the same recognition. They did win the mid-size brewpub of the year at GABF this weekend, so maybe they'll start to garner more attention.
New England brewing... the crew I booze with are all Sea hag junkies
Of those, I would highlight Ipswich. The others seem to get at least a little play around here, particularly Brooklyn and Sixpoint. BCS and Resin have some very strong supporters.
Knee Deep or Tree House
I recently had their IPA in Ocean City MD. Great beer. We go to OC often, so a side trip to Salisbury to their brewery is definitely a future side trip.
Central PA? Definitely...
That's because their 12 oz. bottles cost like $10.
Full Sail or even Anchor. I have not had a bad beer from either of them.
I really like Shmaltz. I don't live in an area that distributes that beer though so my view might be skewed.
I once saw Jason refer to Tree House as the Hill Farmstead of Mass. Not sure I would rank it among underrated breweries. It may not be that well-known yet, but I don't consider that to be the same thing as underrated.
