Ugh, all breweries.  I thought it was going to be a list of the best places to drink beer.

For Pennsylvania they picked Fetterman's home town.  I'm sure that was a total coincidence.  I hear they even have a beer that isn't an IPA.  Very edgy.

There's only so many giant vats and unmemorable beers one can find novel.  Also I think we somehow have more brewers in OR than people.

I agree the microbrew scene is a little oversaturated. Though, how does one go about solving the 'good first world problems to have'.

It's a target rich environment.

When I was trying to guess which place would be listed for my state, I thought of at least seven microbreweries withing a 20 mile radius of me that could win. Turned out to be one in another town.
 
2022-05-22 6:45:11 PM  
At least 5 of them serve beer in plastic glasses, good sign to avoid those places.

Huh. Lagunitas, huh? I've been past there plenty of time but never stopped in.

Aren't a ton of the larger microbrewery places actually owned by the mega breweries.

I'm not generally a fan of their retail brews--I mean they're fine but sorta pedestrian, but I'll bet they've got some good ones on tap there.

I'm surprised they picked St. Arnold's in Texas.  Not because it didn't deserve it but articles like this typically pick someplace in Austin.

They have grown quite a bit.  I would go there *years* ago on Sunday's where the beer hall would fill to capacity.  People would be picnic baskets and lawn chairs and blankets for *inside* the beer hall.  $7 would get you 4 chips, a glass half-pint, and the chips were good for a fill on the half.  *However* if you bought a souvenir glass and used that instead of the half, they would fill that thing to the brim - I used to buy the ~22oz schooner.

Their pub crawls were also a blast.

Now that they have the restaurant attached (which is really nice), the beer hall has plenty of room.  I've been meaning to Uber over there and spend they day sampling Bishops barrels and playing pokemon TCG with my son.

You're right. A good beer spot should only carry Budweiser and Coors. Wouldn't want to drink beer at a place that actually makes the stuff.

Notice it said "best beer spot"? It didn't say "best coke-fueled nightclub".

I'm on the east coast so I need to take what I can get.

...and of course they went with Fremont Brewing for Washington. It's not even the best place to get a beer in Seattle, or even in Fremont, FFS. That'd be Brouwer's, IMHO.

"Definitive list," my ass. Waste of farking time, but it's ETNT, so that's to be expected.
 
2022-05-22 9:10:21 PM  
The pick for Georgia was Monday night brewing. Not even close. Monday night is fine, their best beer is Space Lettuce, but Creature Comforts is the best brewery in Georgia followed by 3 Taverns. However the beer scene here has got a bit boring (to many tropical hazy IPAs) probably due to the pandemic.

They nailed Michigan. Bells is the most consistent for high quality and flavor. Next founders then shorts. Then speciation or vivant.
Still lots of cool stuff going on in MI brewing.

They got Montana right. Blackfoot brews fantastic beers, there's a rooftop patio with great views of Mt. Helena and the South Hills, and the crowd is relaxed. They also host community events and gives back to the community. It's an all-around great place.

"Superstition Meadery ships its beers all over the country, but nothing beats going to the tasting room in Prescott. The owners take their mission statement "to reintroduce the world's oldest fermented beverage to mankind" very seriously. During the past decade, they've introduced over 300 meads and hard ciders"

Hey f*ck you.

Superstition Meadery makes mead and cider, not beer.  They do not ship "beers all over the country" because they do not make beer.

Brew Gentlemen is the only reason I will still visit my family there, It's a time ratio way in favor of the pub.Outstanding brews and place....Sorry to harsh your snark.

Mead and cider are wine, not beer. That always bugs me.

The list was composed by reading other people's shiatty lists. Seriously, I don't know why ETNT exists, except to sell ad space.

Oregon and Washington - meh. There are better.
 
2022-05-22 11:29:24 PM  
Big Grove for Iowa? Hell yes. That place has great beer, food, live music, etc, etc.

Only problem is that it's kind of in BFE which makes consuming their main product on-site difficult-ish.

The brewery for New Mexico, La Cumbre, is correct based on my experience but they got rid of the pool table and foosball table 4-5 years ago, along with the barrel top tables with a ridge that made it painful to lean your arms on the edge. I thought it was weird to see them referenced in the blurb because the picture shows the newer "community type" tables similar to a beer hall.

It is one of my favorite places and I'm glad to be considered a regular there.

Elysian makes my faves, but Hellbent is getting close.

I like Brouwer's because they have Rodenbach on tap. I could *live* on that stuff!

Holy shiat.

The Missouri one's actually a good pick, and the exact one that first came to mind in seeing the headline. That was unexpected.

Some definitely are. And they always promise that they won't change how it is managed at time of purchase... until it is time to cut costs. There's also a bunch of ventures literally started by the big companies to look like small independents. Those mostly suck, but some of the purchased brands maintain decent quality(for now).

If you ever visit northern Ky this is the place to go for a mighty fine beer.

Wooden Cask

The choice for Colorado is decent

Lakefront in WI is a solid choice. I would rank
1. New Glarus
2. Central Waters
3. 3 Sheeps / Lakefront

I fondly recall the old old days at original location before breweries could legally sell beer on site. Saturday tours were free and I knew enough of the folks pouring that it was pretty much all I could drink for two hours.

Spotted cow is one of the best beers I have ever had. My wife and I drank gallons of it when we went to door county.

Not even gonna read the list; I realized long ago that these "best in each state" lists are 90% whatever place has been featured on a TV show recently, or whatever place has the biggest advertising budget.

Also, if a lists Mississippi offering involves Magnolia Brewery, just disregard the whole damn thing. Their beers suck with such a uniform terrible-ness, it's actually impressive.
