The problem with these national lists -- well, one of the problems -- is that anything large and well-known enough to get noticed by the people charged with assembling it is, almost by default, never going to be anywhere close to the "best" around. Virginia's choice is a perfectly cromulent brewery recommendation, in general, and if you were going to Richmond and wanted a few places to hit it would be on any list I assembled. But best in the state? I can name about six off the top of my head -- all much smaller and more local -- that are far, far better.

Never even heard of Maryland or DCs pick. I guess there's something to do next weekend.

UberDave: Let's see...what Brewery in Austin are they going to pick for all of Texas.


Apparently, they got heat for making the very reasonable choice of Shiner last year, so might as well go hipster. God forbid somebody go to Houston and try Karbach, Saint Arnold, or Buffalo Bayou.

duckpoopy: Is it a law that your brewery needs a stupid name, slogan and story on the label? I don't need your hilarious, edgy philosophy. Just make beer.


"We know of no brand produced by any other brewer which costs so much to brew and age. Our exclusive Beechwood Aging produces a taste, a smoothness and drinkability you will find in no other beer at any price."

"From the glass lined tanks of Old Latrobe, we tender this premium beer for your enjoyment as a tribute to your good taste."

...and so on.

For some states, picking a best is relatively easy. For states like Washington, California... well anywhere with a big craft beer scene... it is hard to make that call. Hell, I live in the IE in SoCal and there are about 15-20 breweries within a 5 mile radius of my house, ranging from lagers and stouts, to the overplayed IPA, to even barrel-aged naturally fermented sours.

It's crazy.

Another list, another Oregon brewery I've never heard of in the 18 years I've been here.

Lupulin? No. They're a good brewery, but Fair State is where I'd send someone visiting the Twin Cities.

For Vermont it's Hill Farmstead and always will be. Not just in the state, but the country.

In Maine I've always been drawn to Maine Brewing Co, but you can make arguments for a number of places.

I'd have stuck with Side Project in Missouri.

Drekker probably gets it by default, but personally I find them insulting.

I'd say Connecticut, Massachusetts and Wisconsin are correct.

Ok,.. Maines number 1 is in my top five, but personally i find Atlantic brewing co. has some better brews, and I always find an Allagash white (From Allagash brewery) will beat anything else
if i have the choice of on tap, seadog's blue paw (In seadogs pubs) is amazing, blueberries ale, with a handful of blueberries tossed in the cup.

I'll have to take your word for it, as I am not familiar with even one establishment on that list.

As soon as my son is vaccinated (and the requisite time has past) and this covid shiat is under control, I'm grabbing Catan, my son's pokemon (he actually plays), the family, and I'm ubering over to the brew hall at St. Arnold's to spend the day.

That's an incredibly strange IL pick. Begyle isn't even the standout brewery if you're in the neighborhood of Begyle.

BunkyBrewman: La Cabra?  Never heard of it but might have to give it a shot since it's local.

But they got Delaware right with Dogfish Head.


La Cabra is pretty solid.

For my birthday a few years back we did a local brewery tour. There are a ton of options, but we started at Tired Hands in Ardmore, then made out way down 30 to La Cabra, and finished up at Levante in West Chester. A pretty solid trio overall.

We've got our fair share of New Englanders on the team. And if you asked any one of them, they'd say Narragansett is their beer of choice from Rhode Island.

Which should disqualify them immediately.

I came here to say something along these lines. Not a terrible pick, but not the best in the state in my opinion.


Geaghans is another good choice, they tend to have a bit more hops, so kinda a preference thing. i put them at around number 8 or so.

Not a maine brewery, but i just got a sam adams Jack-O that was amazing, sweet, with cinnamon and nutmeg and Not one trace of pumpkin.

PA has got some lovely little places that would not make a list like this.

There are a couple in Abington Township that are quite good. Bill's Best makes delightful, small batches that don't all taste the same *cough* victory *cough*
