'Tis the Season for Hops and Barley: Our Retailers' Favorite Breweries

Hoppy, light, sour, malty...Whatever your style, there's no denying that it's beer season. Munich's Oktoberfest is in full swing, and cities all over the country (and world) are hosting their own celebrations where the spirit's high and beer will be flowin'. So we asked a few of our retailers to share their favorite local breweries with us. Can we get a Prost?! PACStore "Corridor is my favorite local brewery. Their Oktoberfest beer is perfect for the season! Also the artwork on the pint features art from Search Inc.'s Visibility Arts Program!" -Marta at The PAC Store in Chicago, IL ZeroGravity "Choosing a favorite brewery in Vermont is pretty challenging, but Zero Gravity definitely stands out...constant rotating selection of IPAs and a solid mix of pilsners, goses, sours, and porters...Best of all it's walking distance from my home." -Ethan at Outdoor Gear Exchange in Burlington, VT MaineBeerCo "Along with being dog-friendly, Maine Beer Company is also a 1% for the Planet member!" -Abbie at Toad&Co in Freeport, ME TheToggery "I would say aside from the super legit beer they craft, Bonsai Brewing Project has the best yard and staff in town. Hands downs...it's the best kiddie park with beer EVER!" -Rene at the The Toggery in Whitefish, MT Zilker Brewing "Zilker Brewing Company has got to be on your list of Austin breweries. Not only is a pint of Parks and Rec my favorite pour in the whole city, but they also donate a portion of those sales to the Austin Parks Foundation!" -Sean at Whole Earth Provision Co. in Austin, TX Looking for more?
