Michigan Ranked 4th Best Beer State in U.S. by Travel Website
Thrillist, a travel, food, and drink website has ranked all 50 states according to their beer.
While we're pretty sure they made an error not naming Michigan No. 1, 4th best beer state isn't too shabby!
It's another win for Michigan, which recently scored recognition for its wine too!
And we're no strangers to beer honors here in Beer City USA: Grand Rapids has been named one of 13 Best Beer Cities in the U.S. by Swiftly and The Best Beer Town in the USA by USA Today!
Thrillist gives a nod to GR (and Kalamazoo!) in their praise of Michigan beer:
Mittens were meant for holding cold brews, and Michigan happens to host some of the best damned breweries in the country. There’s a reason that the annual release of Bell’s Oberon is like a state holiday, and why its Two-Hearted is consistently ranked among the best IPAs in the world, even as many drinkers don’t realize it’s an IPA. Or why Larry Bell’s neighbors to the North, Grand Rapids’ Founders, has become one of the nation’s most respected brewers, so much so that Grand Rapids is now on the map as a destination beer city."
So which states are the best and worst in terms of beer?
