Michigan Ranked One of the Best States for Beer Drinkers
If you've been living in Michigan for any amount of time, you'll know that we have some AMAZING craft beers being brewed in the state. So, it's no surprise that Groupon has rated Michigan the 3rd best state for beer drinkers in the entire country!
The list, released by Groupon, took into account three major factors when determining the best state, quality and affordability of the beer, and the enthusiasm of the state's beer drinkers. Michigan ranked #1 for affordability of beer which means that I have been buying beer at the wrong place, because I'm definitely not paying the lowest price in the nation at the liquor store by my house.
In addition to the low price, Michigan's beer ranks pretty high on quality chart. Ranking 11th, just behind Oklahoma and just ahead of New York. This ranking seems a bit off to me. Personally I don't know of any good beers from Oklahoma, and even if they did have good beer, I be it wouldn't be to the quality of a Bell's or a Founders.
And finally, Michigan ranked 15th as far as our citizens' enthusiasm for beer. I don't know about you, but pretty much everyone I know are huge Michigan beer fans.
Whoever made this list obviously hasn't been to West Michigan because we are pretty much the best place for beer drinkers in the world. Maybe it was the rest of the state that was holding us back.
