Three breweries from outside your distribution area

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.

If we just got everything in Louisiana that is produced in the southeast I'd be a very happy man. Texas has so many good breweries all the way over to Florida... I'd be set for a long time.

re: Three breweries from outside your distribution area
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...

This would work too. Although it probably wouldn't sell well and we'd be bitching about 6 month old arctic panzerwolf in no time

Honestly I could go on and on since most brewery shite on LA when it comes to distribution.

Now for my real answer:

Three Floyds (would always have Zombie Dust in my fridge)
Firestone Walker (Double Jack and Wookie Jack)
Great Divide (for the various Yeti incarnations)

I could come up with another dozen or two that I would be just as happy to have.

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.
