"If you're going to drink, you might as well do it in the home of craft beer in the US."

2. Cloudburst Hotline Bling IPA

Nothing is ever brewed twice in this building, but don't let that stop you from drinking one (or eight) of the current IPA when you visit.

People literally wait in line for hours for a single bottle of this beer. As soon as you taste it you'll know why.

4. Solera Peche Lambic

From the brewmaster equivalent of Monet comes a craft-beer-rennaisance. Peaches grown mere feet from the brewhouse make this a true specialty.
