Anyone found anything new that they are enjoying right now? Doesnt neccessarily have to be new but if its new to you that works too. I have had and been wowed by

Captain Lawrence's Smoke from the Oak-This is a smoked porter from Pleasantville NY. It is aged in Pinot Noir Casks. Lightly smoky with definite pinot characteristics. This one went down smooth, very unique. You get those dark fruit/prune like flavours mixed with the chocolateness of a porter. This one isnt so easy to find, I had it at the recently opened Blind Tiger in NYC. This was my first beer from this young brewery and i was very impressed.

Victory Hopdevil-Now this one is fairly common place but i had probably not had it since 1998 or so. Having lived in SD for 2+ years this was a revelation of sorts. I gotused to the SD and other West Coast strongly piney/grapefruity IPA's so this was really interesting. The hops in this arent as overpowering but in some ways seemed so fresh and floral. Totally different fromm West Coast IPAs.

I have a bottle of Dogfishhead Worldwide Stout in the fridge right now. So that could be next on the list. I am frankly a little nervous.

So what new beers are people discovering for themselves?
