WE’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CRAFT BEER revolution. 10 years ago, if you went into a bar, there was a fair chance they would just serve two types of beer: “light” and “foreign.” Mercifully, the era of bad beer is over. Beer is good pretty much everywhere, now. IPAs, DIPAs, Black IPAs Porters, Kolschs, Marzens, Browns, Reds, Sours — all right there on the menu of your local watering hole.
There’s really no bad place to be right now. But we’ve picked 10 cities that we think are truly stand-outs. There are obvious ones, yes — but we’ve tried to pay attention to less appreciated cities, as well.
