I have in the last 5 years or so became very into craft beers, mainly IPA style, but I will try most anything at least once. With that said if it is something I'm fairly certain I wont like it will just be a sample and usually just because it is on the list of samples at a tasting. Just like special artisan soaps there are small breweries that source local and seasonal ingredients for their different brews. So are any of you also fans of craqft beers and if so name some favorites.
Here area some of mine.

Dogfish Head 120 minute IPA (also a fan of the 90 minute, the 60 minute, and the now rarely found until they re-brand and bring back the 61 minute)
Dogfish Head Squal a limited release
Clown Shoes Space Cake double IPA
Brew Kettle Black Rajah (White is good too)
Dogfish Head Burton Banton (as seen in my avatar picture)

Honestly I could go on for a while and maybe go back and forth on some and surely not think of some that are rare and that I have not had in a while but there's 5 of the ones I go for kind of often, sadly cant cat the 120 minute to often because it hasn't been available in Ohio, although that may be changing.
So lay it on me, give me some of your favorites.

Right now I'm sipping on a Uinta Brewing Co Detour Double IPA... REALLY good stuff. Does it break my top 5? Nope, but like craft shaving goods, there is a lot of top tier stuff to go around...

My top 5 right now.

- Clown Shoes Luchador en Fuego (2016)
- Mayflower Standish
- Maui Brewing Co Coconut Porter
- Harpoon Wannamango
- Switchback Ale (OMG)

One of my favorites is hard to get on the west coast:

Dominion Imperial Stout. Not only is the name awesome, but the flavor is even more awesome.

I am a huge craft beer fan, in fact you can see what I have been drinking recently over on the "Enjoying a glass or two" thread.

I have found myself particularly fond of sweet/milk stouts but as the warm weather roles in the IPA's come into there own.

My top beers as of now:

Magic Rock Haywire Grapefruit IPA
Cloudwater Brewery DIPAv3
Omnipollo Yellow Belly Peanut Biscuit Stout
Bristol Beer Factory Milk Stout
Magic Rock Grand Mariner Chocolate Orange Stout
Siren Brewery Caribean Chocolate Cake Stout
Oli AKA Windsor Citrus
Surrey, UK.

I'm relatively new to Ohio. Any great local Ohio brews I should definitely have?

I've never liked an IPA that I tried, nor a porter, stout or most lagers.  I tend to stick with wheats, pilsners and lighter ales.  my favorite style of beer is the German wheats.  my top is ayinger brau weisse.

when I was in Boston a few weeks ago with a buddy, we checked out the harpoon brewery - they sell several beers I enjoy:
