Everyone has their favorite style of beer. Whether it’s a hearty stout, a light ale, or a hoppy pale ale. A group called the Business Broker Network thought it would be a good idea to find out what kind of beer reigned supreme in each state, and was kind enough to share those findings with the world. Not one to let a good bit of knowledge pass us by, we thought it would be worth sharing with you.
Now, you can find out how your state plays out in the beer-style lottery.
- Ale – Just plain ale goes big in Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
- Hefeweizen – Only Oregon and Utah stepped up to this flavorful beast.
- India Pale Ale - California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, and Vermont dig this one.
- Kolsch – The preferred brew of Arizona and Colorado.
- Lager – This was the most popular in Georgia, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and South Dakota.
- Pale Ale – This beer finds the best homes in Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Tennessee, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
- Wheat – It’s the favorite of Arkansas, Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas, Montana, and Nevada.
- Porter – Most at-home in North Dakota
- Saison – The District of Columbia teamed up with Virginia for this choice.
- Stout – Only Wisconsin can handle this kind of burliness in the masses.
Now, if you find yourself disgusted by what your state’s represented by here, then we suggest drinking more so that you can up the numbers next time. It’s the manly thing to do.
Guess I need to move from Iowa to Illinois. Never been a big wheat beer drinker...and I LOVE IPAs...
