B-52s are the classic choice.  But The B-2 Spirit is downright impressive--but really hard to find. Or, if you like it old school, go for the B-29 Super Fortress.

Definitely B52s!

You guys get Jolly Pumpkin over there. Some of those beers should find their way to your shelves.

Boulevard--Saison Brett

Good luck finding that! It took me two cities worth of looking to get my little stash of 5 bottles going.

All of Boulevard's Smokestack Series is excellent though.

I guess they sent it all to DFW. It's all over, just sitting on the shelves. People don't know what they are passing by.

Boulevard Tank 7,  Saison-Brett (but its limited release), Unibroue (especially La Fin Du Monde and Tres Pistoles), any beer by Ommegang, Delirium Tremens, Arrogant Bastard and Samuel Smith's are bombers I frequently buy.

When you care enough to send the very best the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit is the way to go.

However, there is a LOT to like about the Big Ugly Fat F##ker too.

Beer-wise, I have to go with:

do you sense it?  the formerly small liquor store has now expanded
becoming a huge mega supermarket of beer and there are now 2
50 foot aisles dedicated to the stock of Bombers!   ;D

I guess they sent it all to DFW.1. It's all over, just sitting on the shelves. People don't know what they are passing by.

1.) Of course, I sit here in my office wondering, do I go with a parody of DFW via non-fiction, or fiction? Will the reader know or care? There is also the possibility of relating stories of running into DFW's family at the grocery store.i. But most likely no will give a s@$. I wonder what all these beers on the shelf are. This is Brett. Saison--Brett.

i.) His dad looks just like him. It is startling.
2.) Edit: My wife informs that DFW may have meant Dallas Fort-Worth, rather than the Champaign, IL writer David Foster Wallace who is often referred to as DFW. In which case, my DFW parody may have not made sense.

I'd suggest calling David Foster Wallace first and see if that is what I meant.
