When I was scouring the web for an image to serve as the intro to our Best Beer Labels post, I stumbled across a brilliant map of the US where all of the states had been replaced by local brewery logos. A number of readers asked for a higher-res image of the picture and I sadly had to explain to them that I hadn’t actually created the map.
But I’m nothing if not attentive to our readers…so I decided to create a bigger, better version of the image. The original map was a thing of beauty, but it had some problems. Most of the brewer logos were dated or obsolete (or in the case of Arkansas, missing completely). Plus, there were logos for breweries like Coors and Anheuser-Busch which no self-respecting Alehead would put on their map. Instead, I selected what I considered to be an excellent representation of craft beer in each state. Obviously I had to make some sacrifices where certain states are concerned, but I think I did a decent job with my selections.*
*Note: I’ve retroactively swapped this new image into the original Best Beer Labels post. So if you’re looking for the old version, click here.

Hope you enjoy, Alehead Nation!
