In addition to announcing Zymurgy‘s Best Beers in America 2019, we also like to break out the results by state.
Check out the table below to see what earned the titles of Top Beer and Top Brewery.
Note: The Top Beer and Top Brewery by state results are unique, meaning the Top Beer is not always brewed by the Top Brewery. The results for each have been compiled into one table and organized alphabetically by state name for your convenience.
Certified Independent Breweries
All the breweries marked with an asterisk (*) are independent breweries in the United States.
More than 6,000 operating breweries exist in the U.S., and 98 percent are considered independent.
When you’re shopping for beer, look for the independent craft brewer seal. You’ll spot it in a variety of places, including on packaging and labels, at events, on tap handles, and on menus and websites. This seal signifies a brewery as independent.
