America's Best Beer Cities
No. 6 Minneapolis/St. Paul
The Twin Cities climbed nine spots in the survey this year, and the buzziest beers seem to channel the outdoorsy, hipster vibe that voters love about Minnesota. Indeed Brewery prides itself on its retro, back-to-basics cans, while Fulton Beer offers a Russian imperial stout—a bracing 9.2% ABV (alcohol by volume) brew that, the site promises, “if left outside during winter, won’t freeze, even in Minnesota.” Readers might not want to test that claim: they ranked the Twin Cities near the bottom among places to visit in winter.
