Colorado: Per capita, the best damn beer state in the Union.
Strange Maps has all the details.
I call shenanigans!
They have Alaskan Smoked Porter as the highest decorated beer. It’s totally undrinkable. That’s the danger with these populist awards; I’m sure BMW has recevied more awards than Maybach, but that doesn’t mean they’re better cars.
Oregon is the one true beervana in the USA. Nay, the world.
Next time you’re in Portland I’ll show you around and we’ll drink some Maybachs.
Tupper’s Hop Pocket will be back after two years hiatus. St. George’s Brewery will be making it.
I have to vote for Colorado as well. Blue state Connecticut where I live is awful for beer selection. The supermarkets in Colorado have a better variety than most CT. liquor stores. Damnn puritans!
Best beer, COLORADO!!!!
I thought you didn’t drink beer, Stephen…
Try the new (and small, and well hidden) Dry Dock Brewery in Aurora. First time I’ve had to take a Beer Nap in thirty years. And Tasty too!
Did ACORN gather the data for this?
Oregon is the Beervana. There are more excellent microbrews brewed on my suburban street than most cities in America.
Coor’s massive output of watery Silver Bullets should count against the total of good beer procuced in Colorado. With that factored in, they are waaay behind Oregon. At least our locally produced mass-beer is Henry’s, which has risen in quality since Full Sail of Hood River started brewing it for…um…whoever it is that owns Henry Weinhard’s. (Yeah, Coor’s.)
Pale Ales should be our national drink. Maybe even our national mascot. We could add it to the Pledge of Allegiance, like the under God part.
One Nation, on the porch, drinkin’ Pale Ale.
I can see denying Colorado based on Coors, but putting in Oregon? Don’t make me laugh. There is a reason Wisconsin is called the Land of Cheese and Beer.
