The Best Beer Bars in Every State

There, we planned your weekend for you

In 2015, there were 4,269 breweries churning out suds, the most at any point in U.S. history and proof of the fact that despite our differences, Americans at least agree on the slugging back of cold ones.

What we don’t agree on is where the best place in the U.S. to consume craft brews actually is, so the Brewers Association and surveyed their readers to find out.

After tabulating answers from more than 7,000 respondents to determine the Great American Beer Bars of 2017, CraftBeer has released a state-by-state list of the country’s 50 best bars.

Bars were ranked on criteria such as atmosphere and decor, performance of staff, special events and, most important of all, beer selection (including the number of draughts they offer).

From pubs to grilles to a spot offering 1,000+ bottles and cans, find the top bar near you.
