STATES WITH THE HIGHEST (AND LOWEST) NUMBER OF BREWERIES
(INCLUDING MICROBREWS AND BREWPUBS) PER CAPITA
The North and West, especially smaller states, rank highest. The
Southeastern United States very consistently ranks low (regardless
of the size of the state; all Southeastern states, from Virginia
south to Florida and west to Texas and Oklahoma, are below the
national average of 5.3 per million people). The differences between
the highest ranked and lowest ranked states are sharp (like a good
ale?); in fact, Vermont has about 30 times more breweries per capita
Most breweries in this list are brewpubs (places people drink where
the beer is brewed onsite) and microbreweries.
