Three breweries from outside your distribution area(Posted by LoneStarTiger on 3/26/13 at 9:02 am)
If you could pick three breweries that do not currently distribute where you live, what three would you like to see come to your market? (try to be somewhat realistic, you know The Alchemist and Hill Farmstead aren't coming anytime soon)
With the addition of Firestone Walker to Texas (allegedly) and Founders on it's way, I think I'd go with Bell's and Three Floyds for the first two, but the third would be a tough call. I'd like better access to Alesmith or Lost Abbey, but having some of the eastern beers like Cigar City would be nice too.

I am working in Portland, OR, and I have found that I don't have a want for any beers outside of Portland. Gonna take me a while to try all that's available here. By the time I get through them all, I will have forgotten half of them and will have to start over. I'm set for years to come...

quote: love all the people saying Russian River and Three Floyds considering the above
Russian River produces 14,000 bbl a year Source and Three Floyds is 20,000 bbl a year Source. I don't think that makes them unrealistic, especially considering the trend of West Coast brewers opening eastern facilities.
