BUT if you are from Minnesota, any true Minnesotan knows there is a good SPAM® and that's the cooked canned pork kind that is produced in "SPAM® Town USA", also known as, Austin, Minnesota.

Even if you've never been to Austin, Minnesota if you're from this great state, you know that SPAM® resides there and that there is a museum that is ALL about SPAM® the food. Speaking (or writing) of the SPAM® Museum it actually just made the list of:

Lastly, but certainly not least, on the list was the SPAM® Museum in Austin, MN which if I'm being honest I have not been too yet. My mom even has good friends who live in the town, so I really have zero excuse to not make it happen. Besides a visit there sounds very appeals as I've read up and see they have cool "SPAMbassadors" around and they even come around with what they call "SPAMples", I mean come on, that's just clever and good marketing!

The full article gives a better description and goes into more detail and I highly suggest checking it out HERE and learning a little more some pretty cool places to visit in America and if you're not from Minnesota we hope you come and visit us real soon!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
