IMO this is meaningless because there is not a "one size fits all" national beer style but lots of regional and micro-regional styles and tastes. That's why it is enjoyable doing a brewery road trip.

Of course it's not meaningless. The thread is what's YOUR favorite craft beer region. It's intended to discuss different regions and their brews and why you in particular like one region. It allows for discussion about different kinds of beer for beer lovers. Unfortunately this site usually turns uncivil rather quickly.

My favourite American beers come from NorCal and the PNW.

So I've had a revelation. I can't believe I hadn't tried it yet. Goose Island's Bourbon County Barleywine. This is a 10/10 beer. Holy crap. You'd think it would be boozie and unmanageable, but no. This thing is a burnt caramel and dark fruit explosion. Just had to express this since it took me so long to try this one. I'm glad Goose Island kept their actual good beers (Bourbon County line, Sofie, Matilda, etc.) in Chicago. They can keep their other crap in NY.

Great Lakes region for the win.

(and trying to bring this thread back because it is a nice change of pace)

I live in PA now . PA has State stores yet for Liquor and Beer regional distributors for beer. Though a few Supermarkets have been allowed to sell beer. I find beer selection limited compared to other states. Though PA does have some micro-breweries. Nothing like other states. Especially in the Midwest/Great Lakes like Wisconsin. I was amazed at all the micro-Craft breweries beers on Tap in bars there. Love the convenience of beer in convenience stores. Also in Chicago that benefits from close to Wisconsin and its own craft beers. Enjoyed both places and selections of beers even in convenience stores.

The fact that the Midwest is winning is a joke. Of course it's the West Coast.

Never met a good beer from either coast that I couldn't get done better from a brewery in the Midwest.
