It's a solid mass-market microbrewery, if there is such a thing. But I much prefer 21st Amendment. In the summer, they put out Hell or High Watermelon. Yeah, watermelon beer. I'm not kidding, it's effing delicious poolside. Goes down like water.

I also discovered this stuff, Ales of the Revolution, brewed up in PA. I'm a big fan of the Tavern Spruce.
Otherwise, I just like to try different lagers and ales. I'm always down for a Sam Adams anything, particularly Cherry Wheat.
Yards is pretty solid Brewery. I've never tried the one you posted, but I'll have to give it a whirl. Spruce beer? Is it woody in flavor?
And the delirium; I've seen it several times but haven't made the plunge.
Great Lakes Christmas Ale on tap is the best seasonal beer
Otter Creek Smokestack Porter is an excellent beer for long winter nights
Brooklyn Brewery Brown ale is always appreciated with a grilled cheese sandwich
Delirium Trimens is a get you drunk quick beer
Pilgrims Dole from New Holland brewery is a barley-wine that is meant for sipping
There are too many to list
When I'm grilling just give a Miller High-life, "the Champagne of Beer"
Since this is on the baseball boards I have to mention The Ommegang Brewery in Cooperstown. Their flagship beer is great as a lunch beer.
