I'm a little late to the party here (busy drinking), but I'm currently working my way through a sixer of Alaskan Summer Ale, which I picked up at BevMo. Very nice brew. I've been swapping it between Stone Pale Ale's, and I think they are a very nice contrast.
I'm in the hunt for some good winter brews. You know, the hockey, snowball fight, snow face washin' type brews that are nice by the fire, but even better when it's colder outside than you refrigerator.

I really like a beer from a small brewery in CO. The beer is called Fat Tire. I have not been able to find it in CA so I try to bring some back with me every time I go to CO.

We discussed Fat Tire in another thread a couple pf months ago. You should be able to find it at BevMo, Liquorama in Upland or at Hollingshead Deli in Orange. Personally, I don't think it comes close to a few of the beers mentioned in this thread.

I was somewhere recently that had Fat Tire on the menu. I will retrace my steps and find out. It might have been Corner Bakery

Tried a beer last night that I picked up at Hollingshead Deli in Orange. It's called Supplication and is brewed by the Russian River Brewing Company. A most unusual beer. As it says on the bottle, it a "brown ale aged in oak barrels with cherries added". It's rather expensive, at $9.99 for a 12.7oz bottle. Excellent flavor, very complex, each sip seemed to reveal something new. The guy at the deli said to drink 1 bottle now, and put the other away for a few months. After trying the first bottle, the second is calling to me right now.

EJ Molloy's in Long Beach had it for awhile, but they might be out of it now (and I might have had something to do with that.)
