My teenage years smell like domestic beer, skate ramp wood, and bad cloves. I am trying to forget it all. I fell in love with craft beer in my twenties and started with Sierra Nevada Pale, jumping to Russian River, Modern Times. and finally to Brouwerij West, Mikkeller, Breakside, Fremont, Smog City, Little Beast, and Jester King, all of which are among my current favorites. But what happens when you are traveling and the gas station only has the basics? Which brews do you turn to?
