Shane's Big DIPA
Brewery: Westbrook Brewing Company
North Carolina's Asheville gets all the hype, but Mount Pleasant, South Carolina's Westbrook Brewing Company might be making the best beers in all of the South. Its Gose and One Claw pale ale are perfect, crushable session beers, and Shane's Big DIPA crushes your palette right back. Don't be distracted by the 9.6-percent alcohol though. There's tons of amazing resinous pine aroma along with citrus and a quiet malt foundation to ensure that juicy hop flavors rule the day.
