I liked Sierra Nevada Tumbler in that style. Dogfish Head Indian Brown was fantastic, but I haven't seen it in California for years. Rogue Hazelnut Brown is pretty damn good as well, and probably the one you'd be able to find. Check with Sherbrooke:

edit: You'll be able to find Sam Smith's Nut Brown. I don't care for it (the water they use tastes metallic to me, and I notice it in all their beers with the exception of the Oatmeal and Imperial Stouts) but it's easy to find.

Alrighty. I'll definitely get to trying those out. Sherbrooke sounds like the kind of place to blow 100 dollars on.

I remember seeing some of these brewer names but never trying, so they're being added to my 'to try' list.

Sounds awesome. Thanks. Hopefully this works out well.

I'm excited to try some more brews.
