    Amazingly, Alabama now has nearly 30 breweries going. 15 yrs ago, I was buying craft beer under false pretenses by having the boxes labeled "yeast samples". You either brewed your own or drank Bud/Miller/Pabst. Now there are six or eight breweries in North Alabama alone.

    As has been pointed out, the map is showing a partial logo for "Good People" brewery, out of Birmingham. In my circle of friends, their double IPA, "Snake Handler" is considered a standard. My favorite local brewery is "Straight To Ale", mostly because they tend to produce amazing Russian Imperial Stouts (RIS). Their bourbon-barrel-aged RIS "Laika" is amazing. Same for their bourbon-barrel-aged old ale called "Unobtanium".

    And the slow boat ride across the pond doesn’t help either.

    Not sure how or why Aviator was chosen for NC. Highland Brewing Co., in Ashville, NC would have been my pick.

    Yes, I enjoyed in when I lived in the UK. Not a big bitter fan, me, and please don't tell anyone.

    As already confirmed, VT is represented on the map by Magic Hat. One of many fine brewers in VT. Magic Hat.png

    I understand the choice of Magic Hat since it's more widepread and recognizable. But they've got nothing on Hill Farmstead or Lawson's when it comes to the actual beer.

    What was the criteria for selection on the map? TDPRI approval? :lol:

    For the Commonwealth of Virginia, I vote for this one: Why? Because it captures my MT biking skills exactly. And it's a really good IPA.

    WTF bro? Yuengling is yuck? Check your head man! Be thankful you have access to it. Down here in TX, it's non-existent.

    Exactly! When I head to FL or PA, I make sure to load up on the stuff. They deprive us of the privilege down here.

    Yessiree. The Gaelic Ale is excellent, and their Clawhammer Octoberfest was fabulous. Plus, you know you've arrived when your beer is the only NC beer at Aldi in Rockingham, NC.

    Latin America? Mexico? nooooo, San Miguel is from Spain, EU

    Actually, at first, San Miguel started in 1885 Phillipines when those islands where part of Spain. Obviously, Philipines comes comes from Philip II, king of Spain during the XVI century. When Phillipines got their independence they moved to Spain and continue brewing beer. Now the brand is owned by MAHOU witch happens to be a really good beer

    Oh. I guess an update is in order.

    Oregon should now be Anheuser Busch...

    They have apparently bought...

    ...well...

    It's either the entire state, or a large part of the beer in the state.

    Which I guess amounts to the same thing. The state has been getting parted out for quite a while now, so this comes as no surprise.

    So many great choices in VT. We are fortunate to have so many great beers. 14th Star is another great one that doesn't get a lot of attention. It is owned by an Army Vet, and they do a lot for the local community. I also like Fiddle Head, Zero Gravity, and Frost Beer Works...but a cold Arthur is hard to beat!
