    The possibilties are vast. You call yourself the "bluesssman" and I do love the blues which makes me want to give you suggestions but I'm a little overwhelmed by this question. Let me think......
    I'm still confused as to the definition of a microbrew. Is Dogfish head a microbrew? Is Goose Island? If it's not one of the "big three" is it a microbrew? I'm sorry to digress from your question here, but I absolutely need to take this to the senate.

    Yes, Dogfish Head is a micro brew, in fact, I taste tested one of their fine beers.

    I am looking for suggestions of small breweries whose beer you have tried and really like. I am sure there are many, many beers I don't know about which would be great to have on the show.

    Thanks,

    The Thomas Hooker Brewery in Hartford CT puts out some good beers. The Captain Lawrence Brewery in Pleasantville NY also makes a fine brew.
    It's like a chorus of angels riding whales through space.

    Great suggestions guys. Your help is most appreciated. There are fantastic microbreweries all over this country and if you do not live in the area close to them you would never know about their great beer. Having you all give me suggestions allows me to contact the breweries and find great brews to taste test.

    Thanks so much...

    To bluessman, how available are some of these beers where you are. It's kind of hard to video a tasting if you can't get hold of the beers.
    Marble Brewery in New Mexico has a couple of excellent beers, Wildflower Wheat and their Red Ale come to mind. They've started distributing into Arizona now.

    I have found most breweries I approach about the show are willing to ship me samples. I feel brewery owners are really just home brewers with the coolest brewing gear!
