I don't see it. San Diego has over 100, I know that Seattle is right up there but I don't see any source that states it has more breweries than San Diego. I am welcome to be proved wrong.

The Puget Sound Region has over 140 breweries - Seattle proper has over 60 within city limits. Washington Beer | Breweries

Just to clarify, per the link the Seattle metro area includes all of "Seattle & King County" and "South Sound". "North Sound" covers a larger area but if you look at the list the vast majority of those breweries are in Snohomish County which is part of the Seattle metro. If you add them all up (and I'm not even including Kitsap County, which is a 30 minute ferry ride from Seattle and often considered part of the urban area) that's over 140 breweries in the Seattle MSA.

That's one thing I have to tip my hat to Seattle/Puget Sound, they make some great local beer here, arguably the best in the country.

What are the 3? Not disputing you, but TN is not exactly known for their excellent craft beer- even within the region. Their neighbor to the east (NC) has a much bigger and more advanced microbrew scene....

I voted Mountain because of New Belgium; Ranger is my Bud-Light.

But my single favorite beer is Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, which is in Delaware. Goose Island in Chicago and Schlafly in STL have some solid beers as well.

Yeah, I'm curious about that as well.

It's not quite Portland or Seattle density, but the state of Minnesota now has 111 (almost all craft) breweries:

I can't find a complete list, but have counted 60+ on incomplete lists in the Twin Cities alone.

This is besides the point, but we also have a robust and growing distillery scene, with 14 distilleries currently open in the state (11 in the Greater Twin Cities area, and growing):
