Best Beer in America as award by the GABF
I just recently stumbled across this and thought it was pretty cool. Rick Lyke of lyke2drink compiled all the data about the medals that have been awarded at the GABF since 1987 and created this map and charts. It shows medals won by state and also breaks it down into Top Beers and Top Breweries. It looks like every state has had a winning entry except for West Virginia. According to the Beer Me website, it does appear to have at least four active breweries, so it still has a chance. Its interesting to see that Texas has actually done pretty good over the years. We'll see how many more medals we can add to that with all the new breweries and brewpubs that have opened over the past few years.
