Anchor Brewing, San Francisco, CA. - Anchor Steam Beer
Some brewers stick to traditional brewing methods to create high-quality brew, but others spend decades perfecting their own methods. These are the brewers that craft unique beers that are difficult for rivals to top and near impossible for fans to turn down. If you want to taste what one of the most innovative breweries in the world can produce, you can't go wrong with Anchor Brewing. They're the San Franciscan brewers who developed the process of kräusening and produced the popular Anchor Steam Beer as a result of that process. They combine top-quality Two-Row Pale and Caramel malts, lager yeast, Northern Brewer hops and an open-air fermentation system to create a deep amber color that speaks to the complex flavor delivered in every bottle. You can expect a generous head of creamy foam that rises to the top of your glass, and malty sweetness touched off with the tang of citrus.
Deschutes Brewery, Bend OR. - Fresh Squeezed IPA
When you need to lighten the mood or brighten up your day, pour a tall glass of Fresh Squeezed IPA. Brewed year-round at the Deschutes Brewery in Oregon, this brew features a refreshing blend of Mosaic and Citra hops. While the grapefruit makes its presence known in the aroma and flavor, there's an overall citrusy appeal that is well blended, and that goes down smooth. It's like squeezing fresh oranges and grapefruits to create a tangy juice, but you don't have to do the work, and the alcohol content is far more rewarding. Nugget hops are thrown into the mix as well while Crystal, Munich and Pale malts put the final touch on the recipe. When you have a moment to refresh, you can expect a medium body with so much citrus that you'll want to drink a bottle with your breakfast. Consider it orange juice for the adults.
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Chico, Ca. - Pale Ale
Pale Ale is the beer that started it all for the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. Ken Grossman launched the company in 1979. He tested his equipment with a stout that is still on the market today, but it wasn't until this hoppy Pale Ale was released in 1980 that Sierra Nevada started to make an impression on the beer industry. They remain one of the leading American beer brands today, and this all-natural ale continues to refresh and energize beer enthusiasts as well as occasional drinkers. It starts with an aroma of grapefruit and pine and finishes with the power of Cascade hops. Brewed with a combination of Cascade, Perle and Magnum hops and a blend of two well-chosen malts, this is the perfect beer to accompany a light summer salad. It can also lighten the load when you indulge in steak with a side of veggies.
Santa Fe Brewing Co. Santa Fe, NM. - Santa Fe Pale Ale
If you need proof that this is an outstanding American ale, consider the fact that it has landed the Santa Fe Brewing Company two Best of the Rockies awards as well as two medals from the North American Beer Awards. The Two-Row Pale, Crystal and Carastan malts definitely make themselves known in the aroma as well as flavor. That's okay because the Santa Fe brewers made sure that the Willamette, Cascade and Cluster hops deliver a bite that you can't overlook. This creates an amber-colored brew that you'll want to share with your friends on pizza night. Since it's just as flavorful straight out of the bottle as it is when poured into a glass, it's the perfect brew to stock your cooler for tailgating or a football party. It can balance perfectly with anything that packs a flavorful punch, so combine it with your spiciest recipe when placing it on the dinner table.

Rogue Dead Guy Ale is a German Maibock style with deep honey color and a malty aroma. This style of beer is hearty in richness and well balanced at the end.
Gordon Biersch Brewing Company San Jose, CA. - Blonde Bock
Bock is a dark beer with intense flavor that is traditionally a seasonal delight, but the Gordon Biersch Brewing Company offers their Blonde Bock all year long. While many beers blend the sweetness of the malts with the bitterness of the hops, this brew allows the sweet and the bitter to coexist in harmony. The hops make an instant appearance when you take a sip, but then the mildly sweet malts take over. Each taste finishes with a blast of hops in all their citrusy glory. This creates complex flavor that contrasts with the simple glow of the yellow color. If you're a fan of creamy beers with a tall cap of foam, you may enjoy the ivory foam that rises to your glass as you pour this smooth beer. This is a good brew to sip while eating dessert, but it also works well with fried chicken and other salty dishes.
Deschutes Brewery Bend, OR. - Twilight Summer Ale
Good things come out in the sunlight, and that includes Twilight Summer Ale from the Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Oregon. While the brew includes a combination of four hop varieties, it's the Amarillo hops that jump out and take the lead. Northern Brewer, Tettnang, and Cascade hops are central to the flavor profile as well, but bitterness never overtakes the sweetness that comes from Carapils, Munich, Crystal and Pale malts. Like all exceptional summer ales, you can expect to taste the citrus highlights when you relax with a glass of Twilight, and the complexity of grapefruit pairs well with the dominant hops in this light beer recipe. Add an interesting bottle label that instantly puts you in the mood for a day outdoors, and it's clear why this Deschutes beer has won 10 awards. This includes two gold medals from the U.S. Open Beer Championship and two golds from the European Beer Star.

Stone Brewing Co. Escondido CA. - India Pale Ale
Turn up the hops and put the alcohol on overdrive because the Stone Brewing Company is ready to put on a show for IPA fans. Their passionate brewers spared no expense when steeping their India Pale Ale with Azacca, Calypso, Centennial, Chinook, Ella, Magnum, Motueka and Vic Secret hops. That's a powerful combination that cranks up the hop intensity in terms of flavor as well as aroma. Even though the hops are put in check just slightly by a touch of malts, this is a brew that allows the hoppy bitterness to jump out at your nose the moment you open a bottle. You may enjoy the refreshing burst of pine, but take a good whiff to savor the hints of tropical and citrus fruits as well. The complex flavor has a fruity essence that may even please your sweet side. What else would you expect from one of America's leading IPAs?
