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


Youíd know better than me, but Iíve had better than average luck with the Happy Harryís in Grand Forks. I stop there every year when Hopslam comes out to get my yearly flat of Slammer.

Also, I donít get out to Eastern MT very often (there is absolutely no reason to go to Eastern MT), but Western MT is one of the most underappreciated beer areas around. Great beer scene there, especially in Missoula.

They prefer hairspray there.

Not really NJ has mostly lackluster breweries but great distribution

Very true, although we are getting better with Kane and Carton.

Pulaski County, Kentucky. Dry county - had to buy beer in Lexington and cargo it down to Somerset when Iíd visit.
