Ranked! The Top 10 Cities For Beer Fans, Study Says It’s Time to Relocate

The brewing industry has been booming in the U.S. in the last decade. In 2010, there were only around 1,700 breweries in the country. Fast forward 10 years to today (barring COVID closures) and there are well over 8,000 breweries. That means that whatever town, city, or village you live in is likely to have a brewpub, brewery, or brew shop selling hard-to-find beer. But while beer seems to be everywhere from Seattle to St. Petersburg some cities have a better beer culture than others. Thanks to the folks at SmartAsset, we know exactly which cities those are.

The financial modeling and investing company analyzed the industry and found the best cities for beer drinkers. They began with 384 cities and, based on the number of breweries, breweries per 100,000 people, the average number of beers per brewery, bars per 100,00 people, and the average price of a pint, they made a list of the top 50. But, since we don’t have all day, we’re going to show you the top 10. They are definitely a few surprises. Check it out below and call your realtor because it’s time to move.
