I really like the Midwest too...fortunately there are lots of fantastic breweries throughout the country, regardless of region.
mmmmm.....wish I wasn't going to work in a few hrs

Conversely I doubt any AZ microbrews make their way into Texas or Oklahoma. Different regions altogether.
Texas fits more into the south.

I think you don't know what an IPA is if you think the definitive style comes from the American West coast... lol, homers in every thread on here...

Washington State opened (by far) more breweries than any other state last year:

More Breweries Opened in Washington Last Year Than In Any Other State - Eater Seattle

"All told, 83 new Washington breweries unlocked their doors in 2014, compared with 67 in New York, 59 in California, and 55 in Colorado."

I'm a Beer lover from Colorado and I just got back from a family visit to Indiana.
Found some real winners: Upland from Bloomington, Three Floyds from ??? and some pub near a beach
in Gary Indiana (18th St Brewery or 15th St or something like that). All had amazing beers.

Philadelphia has the best beers. Some magazine even said that this is the #1 beer drinking city.

Big difference between having the best beers and being the #1 beer drinking city. Besides you, I have never heard of anyone accusing Philly of producing the best beers. That is laughable.
