Craft beer is alive and strong in Minnesota. Breweries are popping up all over the state, and they all offer a variety of flavors and styles.

And did you freaking know that there's a U.S. Open Beer Championship?! Me wanna go!!

Minnesota was represented at the Open, and came back with 15 medals out of 6000+ beers.

Congrats to these MN Craft Brew champs!

Insight Brewing (Minneapolis), Spilled Grain Brewhouse (Annandale), Foxhole Brewhouse (Willmar), Able Seedhouse and Brewery (Minneapolis), Badger Hill Brewing (Shakopee), ENKI Brewing (Victoria), and Schell's Brewing (New Ulm).

I realize that Schell's is one of the bigger breweries in Minnesota, but have you had their Firebrick?!

What's your favorite craft beer? Sound off below!
