California Named #1 Beer State
LAist -- When it comes to what's on tap, turns out we're tops. Have a little SoCal pride, brew lovers, because our state has been named the #1 in Beer by The Street.
The ranking comes thanks to a look at some data from the Brewers Association and Beer Institute as well as a look at four key criteria: production, consumption, breweries and breweries per capita.
Sure, we've got some big names in beer brewing here, like MillerCoors (Irwindale) and Anheuser-Busch Inbev (Fairfield), we we also have craft beer brands that prove the little guy can still do great and go big, like Sierra Nevada and Lagunitas (just to name a couple).
