Here Comes a Regular: The Best Cities for Beer Lovers

asset

There are cities across this great nation that are the perfect storm of wonder for beer-specific boozers to thrive. So curious they were, the team at Redfin decided to dive into the data and rank ‘em. But they didn’t just base their listings off some legacy of everyone knowing they can get hospital drunk and spiral into indefinite recklessness—or this list would’ve somehow been drunk enough to wind up with Vegas on here twice.

Instead, Redfin folk looked at the number of breweries per legal-age drinkers (which we should all refer to as “night capita” from now on), active brewery permits, beer taxes, walk score (as bar brawls are more legal when you’re not driving), and median home sale price.

The list will either make you mad at your city or just straight up want to move to the good land.
