American, East Coast -- where the true craft beers come from. I've never seen it here.If you love stouts, you need to visit Boulder, Colorado in February. A local microbrewery (Mountain Sun) hosts "Stout Month" with about 50 different stouts from local craft brewers being offered over a 4 week period (usually there about 8-12 stouts on tap depending on demand and the keg size). There's milk stouts, dry stouts, imperial stouts, coffee stouts, cherry stouts, chai stouts, barrel-aged stouts, nitro stouts, .... etc!Stone is from California and many of their beers can be quite aggressive but in a very complex way. I would not say that the East Coast (e.g., New York ranks 28th of 50 in breweries per capita) is where true craft beer comes from although many fine microbreweries have recently sprouted there.I checked that the brewery was in California and I meant *West* Coast. Why do I always get it wrong!
Thanks for the recommendation. I should definitely visit California on my next trip to the US. Maybe Wilmotters there won't ignore my beer invitation (as those from Chicago and NYC did :-/)...Did you go to the Village to drink Brooklyn Lager?
