50 STATES, 50 BEERS

AGAIN, DON'T READ MORE INTO THIS THAN WHAT'S HERE!
They're NOT saying they're the best beers in each state.
The folks at Serious Eats are just saying these are 50 beers they liked.
If you have others that you like, feel free to add them to the list.

As far as the "Best Name" Contest goes, my picks are:
"Monk's Mistress" from the Midnight Sun Brewing Company in Anchorage AK and
"Fuzzy Baby Ducks" from the New England Brewing Company in Woodbridge CT.

    I seldom agree with any of these lists, but I am a big fan of both the Ohio and Kentucky selections. Most of Great Lakes' beers are too hoppy for my taste but the Edmund Fitzgerald Porter is one of the most finely-balanced brews I have tried - especially if you can find in on tap.
    The Bourbon Barrel Ale is another fine one, albeit rather on the spendy side, but at 8.2 pct ABV you don't drink many at a time. The bourbon infusion is noticeable but does not overpower the ale.

    It's a well done list and of the states I am most familiar with they have made great choices. It's opinion by a few. Opinions always differ so that is no big deal. The idea now is to see how many of those brews you've had or want to quaff down in the future.
     
    I'm most intrigued by one I was unaware of, The Logsdon Farmhouse Ales in Oregon. My great grandmother was a Logsdon from Kentucky. In doing some genealogy research I know some Logsdons migrated from Kentucky to the northwest. The brewer could be a distant cousin. Looks like another RV roadtrip but damn this year it is mostly all in the east.

    I kinda disagree with what they chose for NJ. Carton is very new to the craft beer game. I would've chosen Flying Fish or Riverhorse.
