Best Local Brewery 2018: In just a few years, Tired Hands has evolved from a Euro-style brewing nook serving quirky, delicious beers into a craft beer powerhouse. Devotees drive hours to wait in line for its limited can releases. Lucky locals can pop in for a pint at either of its locations.

Best Bacon Dish 2017: Crispy, meaty and toothsome, Tired Hands Brewing Company’s bacon starter gets us every time. The meat is double-smoked and thickly cut before being glazed in Grade B maple syrup and served warm with a side of syrup for dipping.

Best Brewer: Jean Broillet IV 2014: Broillet is a microbrewing trailblazer who loves to experiment with whimsically creative ingredients, from a pizza-spice-laden concoction to locally sourced varieties infused with tomatoes and mushrooms.

From 2013: The atmosphere of this adventurous brewery is refined yet rustic, much like its beers. With a few mainstays and a variety of seasonal beers, patrons are sure to find something they love. Try the breads, cheeses, and candied bacon made with local maple syrup.

Best Microbrewery, Readers' 2016

Best Overall Brewery 2016: Brewer Jean Broillet IV’s small-batch beers are widely considered among the best in the world. Canning recently began, but only in limited quantities. Try to get your hands on the Punge double IPA or one of the Milkshake varieties. It’s well worth the effort.
