Great thread. I've never had any of the New Belgium beers. Every time a beer thread is started they get good mentions.
I like most beers - depending on my mood. I certainly like trying new stuff that I can't get here.
Right now I'm drinking something new I bought from a microbrewery in Portland, Maine... "Island Ginger".
Some of my summer favorites are Wachusett Blueberry (from Mass.) and Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat (Maine)
In the fall I like these pumpkin ales from Smuttynose (NH) and Shipyard (Maine):
Harpoon Brewery in Boston has an excellent Winter Warmer (cinnamon-y ...even better on tap at the brewery).
There's also a brewery in Burlington, VT called Magic Hat that puts out very good beer. Their "#9" is an apricot ale that has been their mainstay for a long time:
What is a HUGE bummer is that Massachusetts is one of the lame ass states that won't let you send or receive beer through the mail. If I were ever to arrange for a swap of some kind with someone here I would have to have a friend in NH or RI help me out.
I hope you buggers appreciate the pictures - it took me a while.
