That’s true, the Chicago scene is pretty crazy right now though making it a contender.

I am from California and since I like Bud Light I am not authority on craft brews. I am sure I could find a lot of great beers in most states, I am hoping to get out to Illinois and Indiana towards the end of summer.

Stay there you have way better craft brew than the Midwest. You have beat republic, Russian river, firestone Walker this list goes on of some of the best in the world. I would recommended the firestone Walker pils to get you going. Once you develop the taste for better beer you will never go back. Ask Nickman he used to drink miller and now is an expert of beer in just a few years.

Still here and there are plenty of great breweries. Lost Abbey is a (fairly) local brew. Most of the breweries are not on Orange County sadly, but there are one or two. A lot of them are up north, between 6 and 12 hours drive.

The bruery is in orange county, so is offshoot brewery which is actually an offshoot of the Bruery. They make really good hazy, juicy IPAs that even IPA haters would like. Also i think bottle logic is in OC.

As asinine as it seems, north orange county is a stretch, especially for drinking. I have a glass a buddy got me from the Bruery, never tried bottle logic but there is a place not to far called Barley Forge, I had a mango wheat from them that was tasty, if you like sweet beers. I will have to make a trek out north, a former coworker of mine just set up a meadery out in the same area as Bottle Logic.
