The days of finding regional beers solely in their hometown locales are over—Las Vegas is already drinking beers from Brooklyn to San Diego! From sea to hoppy sea, here are just three of the latest entrants to look for at your local pub, grocery store or liquor store.
Goose Island, Chicago: A success story or a tragedy, depending on how you see it, this craft brewery was purchased by Anheuser-Busch, but is still making the 312 Urban, Honker’s Ale, Matilda and Bourbon County Stout that made it so popular in the first place.
Ninkasi Brewing Co., Eugene, Oregon: Named for the ancient Sumerian goddess of fermentation; maker of Total Domination IPA, Tricerahops Double IPA, Believer Double Red, Oatis Oatmeal Stout and Vanilla Oatis—all 90+ point-rated beers.
Shipyard Brewing Co., Portland, Maine: Paying homage to Maine’s august seafaring history, the owners bring us their Sea Dog Brewing Co. line of beers, as well.
