Here's Every State's Most-Sought After Beer

Regional differences are part of what makes America such an interesting and wonderful place. While there are people in every state who love beer, Google search trends indicate that certain states are into very different brews.

Data analysts at Business Broker Network recently combed through search results state by state and compiled a simple map of each state’s most sought-after beer. The results are pretty interesting. Pale ales, ales, wheat beers and lagers are predictably common, but there are a few states that are into something a little different.

Here are some specifics: Washington D.C. and the surrounding Virginia area, of course, are into some predictably pretentious stuff — this area’s residents are mostly searching for a refreshing Saison (a rustic, low alcohol beer with a light body and dry finish), rather than the kind of beers the majority of the country drinks.

Wisconsin is the only state searching for a nice thick stout, which also makes sense — if you’re up there in the great white north, drinking a loaf of tasty alcoholic bread-juice sounds like a great activity. Arizona and Colorado are drinking Kolsch (light to medium body; dry flavor).

What are people in your state drinking? Here’s the full map. Check it out, fall in line, or go your own way:

BBN also found the specific brewery that a state’s residents are searching for the most. The map (press “Next” on the above image to see) is a really cool representation of each state’s unique breweries, and shows which states are more receptive to beers from outside their borders. New York is loyal to the Brooklyn Brewery, for example, but South Carolina is more interested in Sierra Nevada brewing. That’s all the way in California.
