Where Does Your State Rank In Craft Beer Production? [MAPS]


1 minute Read

The number of craft breweries in America continues to grow, but even with this growth, some states still have more breweries and beer than others. Who would have ever thought tiny Vermont would pump out the most craft beer per capita in the nation? This means they have more than six breweries for every 100,000 adults in the state. Which means there is more to Vermont than simply Heady Topper. A lot of the top 10 are basically the ones you’d expect, but a few outliers slip in as well. Check out the maps below to see where your state falls.
