To say that craft beer has taken over the American drinking experience is a bit of an understatement. Walk into any bar and you’ll find hoppy IPAs, creamy milk stouts, and tart goses on the beer list right next to classic American brews like Budweiser, PBR, and Miller Lite.


Because craft beer is so pervasive, new breweries and specialty bars are seemingly everywhere. It’s totally and completely possible to plan an entire vacation just around breweries. To help beer fans do that, we put together a list of the best cities for beer in America.

These cities aren’t just the ones with the most breweries — though breweries play a huge role in whether or not a place is a great destination for beer geeks. In addition to some of the best craft breweries in the U.S., these cities also offer up unique bars with lengthy tap and bottle lists, are home to friendly locals, and are oftentimes walkable or tour-able for beer drinkers so you don’t have to worry about a designated driver.

So crack open a cold one and click here to find out the 25 best cities for beer lovers in America. You just might find your next vacation destination.
