Definitely go to Founders, then drive a few blocks to Hop Cat and try a slew of MI beers.

Founders. By a million miles Founders. Also Hop Cat is only a few blocks away, if you have time for a side trip, they are excellent as well.

Easy... Founders. Weird vibe at Bells, beer isnít as good at New Holland (though to be fair, its improving). Founders is also very near Hopcat, another cool place (brewpub and beer bar).

if you leave early enough, you would definately be able to hit all 3 of those breweries!

I live in CO and never been to any of them and I can tell you Founders.

Including my vote of founders (never been to NH) the total is Founders - 15, everyone else - 0.

Always Bells. In contrast to posters above, I never get mediocre beer there, and I love the vibe and the food. Kzoo is a cool town while GRap is whatever.

But the proper answer is to spend a really awesome afternoon and evening at Dark Horse.

This is definitely true, Dark Horse is only about 25-30 miles East of Bells if I remember correctly, and itís for sure the most unique experience out of all of them if itís doable.
