Elysian Space Dust
SixPoint Resin

On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.

Got to scope out the nearest location for the first two. Heard of both but not seen in these parts.

I'm liking the Cahaba Blonde right now.

Have you tried any of the Goat Island Brews?  That's our only Brewery in Cullman, and they put out some pretty good beer.

ESD not so tasty as I thought on the second one.
Just not a fan of the Amarillo hops/ grapefruit, tangerine backlash.
Tolerable, just not my cup of tea.

Catawba Brewing company's Brown Bear is a solid choice for a brown ale.  Also went to Cheaha Brewing in Anniston Friday night and had their Nutbrown ale.  I likes my browns.

I'm a fan of Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale for a change up every now and then.  Newcastle is my standard.  Not very adventurous I know, but I've always loved Newcastle.

I'm sure I've already posted this but I'm too lazy to go back.  
Samuel Smith Nut Brown
Cheaha Brewing challenge nut brown
Good People Brown Ale
Back 40 truck stop honey
Catawba Brewing brown bear
Cigar City Maduro brown ale
Founders Sumatra Mountain Brown
All of those are SOLID brown ales if you're looking to mix it up a little.

Very few have the distinct nutty flavors as Samuel Smith.  Just bought a carton of "Hopslam Ale Double IPA".  Know nothing about it other than it's damn expensive and my buddy who owns the Lick Her store told me they make one batch a year and he can't keep it on the shelf when he gets it.  Waiting for the proper moment to pour one up.  Anyone ever socialized with a Hopslam?

Forgive the quote function bitch slapping of Snags in the post above.  I blame the new site. Even though I love it.  Just went on Beer Advocate for a review of Hopslam.  Mostly mid to high 4's out of 5 and this review below gave me a serious heads up on what to look for.  I never seem to gleen the same sensations as these folks do, but I have to admit, when I read it, I want to take that first good pull and see if the description matches up.  BTW, I have a feeling (If the review is spot on)that Wes would dig this brew. Random review below: 

I’ve drank this beer numerous times, but it’s not until I try a fresh can from across the country that I feel the need to rate this beer. Here is my best shot.
 Look: pours smooth amber orange with a nice head yet still quite clear. Little to no Haze.
 Smell: Pungent smell of citrus, pine, earthy, and resinous hops in what seems to be mostly flavor. Not the sharp clean scent of a dry hop, but rather a plethera of hops covering a strong honey malt smell.
 Taste: Strong, bitter, and in your face. To those that may feel this is a turn off, trust me, this is not. This is a high gravity beer, so expecting anything “light and breezy” would just be a novice mistake. This beer has been hopped in a wild and Cluster f***ed of a manner to balance the dry honey base and full carmel malty body.
 Feel: In all, the beer lathers the palate with warm, carmely honey notes, and yet the string of a complex bitterness. The high abv definitely lingers, but for a beer this big that is a moot point.

 Overall, definitely my favorite beer from Bell’s. Coming from Michigan, I am uber critical of beers, but I am glad to see that the high demand from across the country has still proven to the success of this beauty!

The Hopslam is ok...but (and I can't believe I'm saying this) it's over-hopped.  For a Bell's IPA, get the Double-Hearted.

IPAs are an acquired taste in many cases. If youre not a craft beer guy they can come across very badly on first taste. India Pale Ales have a very strong floral taste and high alcohol content.

The craft beer revolution has brought lots of IPAs into the public eye.

My go to lately has been Lagunitas IPA. Very smooth pale ale with just the right bitters.

I read that they are trying to focus advertising on the homosexual market.
