A recent study identifies the best beer cities in America

Want to know the best cities in America to criticize Cerviza? A recent study by Clever, a real estate data research company, compiled the cities for the best locations to settle in and take advantage of some foam. After some data-driven research and maybe a few pints, they came up with their list up beer Cities in the United States

The study looked at the 50 most populous metro areas in the United States and then compared the number of breweries, density per 100 square miles, and beer and beer styles for each brewery.

“We research and report on a variety of topics — including features related to major cities that might entice people to move to,” says Francesca Ortegren, a senior researcher at Clever. “This time we decided to focus on breweries because our team is full of people who love to beer and visit breweries when we explore new cities. So, we figured others could benefit from the information as we begin to emerge from the pandemic-related lockdowns.”

In 2020, the pandemic hit the $94 billion US beer market hard. Nearly 10 million gallons were dumped when barrels in closed stadiums and restaurants passed their expiration dates. The industry has also faced shortages of both cans and (32 ounce, aluminum).

“The shortage of cans is definitely real!” says Rich Tochiaron, former president of the brewing division of Kona Brewing and owner of Mountain Tap Brewery in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Tucciaron explains how the pandemic has forced the closure or reduction of operations of most restaurants and bars on the premises, which has resulted in major stores seeing a significant increase in demand for canned beer, and thus an overall increase in demand. “Now that things are opening up again, we’re seeing another huge spike in demand,” he says. Add to that the lack of labor and delays in shipping which is difficult. I order way in advance and pay for extra storage.”

Beer and breweries are back

But breweries are reviving, gearing up for what they are, restaurants and bars, and hopefully the last twenties of partying. Some are even keeping programs they started during the pandemic such as curbside pickup, online ordering, and canning. Even companies like Dogfish Head in Milton, DE, are taking advantage of the non-alcoholic boom, with like-new creations Lemon Quest A non-alcoholic wheat drink, while others are chasing $2 billion solid seltzer bubble.

In her report, Cleaver analyzed publicly available data to rank the 50 most populous metropolitan areas in America from best to worst when it comes to beer. The weighted ratings assessed the number of breweries within each central district; Density of breweries per 100 square miles; the number of beers per brewery; And the number of beer styles for each brewery.

In all of the study, they examined 70,067 unique beers and found that the average brewery serves 19 different types. The six California metro areas in the study combined had 423 breweries, or 13 percent of the total list. Portland, Oregon, recorded the largest number of breweries in a single city with 183, or more than seven breweries per 100,000 residents. Nine cities on the list have over 100 breweries, including Portland; Chicago; Los Angeles; Denver. San Francisco; Philadelphia. New York; Minneapolis St. Paul. and Indianapolis. Salt Lake City and Riverside, California occupy the bottom rung on the foam ladder, with zero each.
