22 of 25

Our cheat sheet of notable beers from breweries open to the public.

Mo, Maine Brewing Co., Freeport, ME: The dry, citrusy pale ale is made with a conscience: 1 percent of company sales go to environmental nonprofits.

Paw Paw Belgian, Moody Tongue Brewing Co., Chicago: Former chef Jared Rouben takes a culinary approach, cold-pressing the tropical pawpaw, North America’s largest native edible fruit.

Mr. Chipper, Westbrook Brewing, Mount Pleasant, SC: This has all the pucker you’d expect from a Flanders red, a sour and fruity Belgian-style brew.

Jai Alai IPA, Cigar City Brewing, Tampa, FL: Beer geeks love the world-class IPA in a can—sweet and hoppy, with a medium, refreshing body.

Founders Porter, Founders Brewing Co., Grand Rapids, MI: This dark, malty ale from a top midwestern brewer has hints of coffee and chocolate.

Simtra, Knee Deep Brewing, Auburn, CA: The strength of the extra-hoppy triple IPA—it’s 11.25 percent ABV—is hidden behind a blast of bitter pine.

Still thirsty? Here are more cool breweries worth a visit.
