like where most bars and gas stations dont even have one craft beer available like a sam adams and only stock BMCs Heineken, Corona or Four Loco. Which states have the least number of beers available and rank them? Whats it like?

North Dakota is pretty much a beer wasteland.

From what Iíve seen itís less about states and more about particular areas of states. It can get pretty bad if you go 50 miles in the wrong direction of where I am.

brewtopian 2:
A good measure is to look at the number of breweries in a given state. If they donít have many breweries chances are they donít have a good selection of beer available.

Beat me to it. Eastern MT and western ND are the worst. By far.

Agreed, itís definitely about the area. I know Chicago (Illinois), L.A. (California), and St. Louis (Missouri) are all cities with horrible availability. Add that to your market research report.

Not any longer, they recently changed their ABV law. While not a utopia, it has improved exponentially as of late.

Yes we are in the top 3 for sure. However, the state just passed the 8% abv in May. We are starting to see different beers trickle in, but nothing overwhelming yet. It has been frustrating to say the least. Maybe we will come into the 21 centery in the next 50 years.

Has it not gotten better on the coast? Seems as if some of the central and northern cities are seeing many more options since the law went into effect.
