    Highest density has to be Asheville. There are 3-4 on every block.

    Surprised Wisconsin didn't make the top ten.

    High population states will not appear high on this list. I'm guessing CO has the most people among the top ten. The other states are pretty sparse.

    Someone from Columbus told me that in order for Anheuser-Busch to agree to build a plant in Columbus, Ohio, the city had to agree to upgrade the quality of the water supply. The consequence is that also benefits craft brewers.

    Washington has a couple million more than Colorado. Of course, most of the states on the bottom 10 are fairly low in population, too.

    I guess AB won't be considering Flint MI.

    Except for Colorado and Oregon, the best breweries are not in states with a high density of craft breweries. IMHO, Michigan, Indiana, California, Colorado and Delaware produce all the craft beer this country needs. Shoot, drive from Muenster, IN to Holland, Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo, MI, filling up your car along the way and you'd never need to go to the store for beer again.
