Everyone lately seems to be on the craft beer train.  It's not like craft beer is new, exactly, but it has really gained a lot of popularity over the last few years.

Almost everywhere you turn there is a new brewery opening. Or, you can get your favorites at some of the local bars and restaurants.  Each one of them has their own spin on IPA, sours, pale ales, ambers, etc.  There is usually something for everyone.  Some of the breweries even produce their version of a seltzer.  That way if you aren't a beer fan, you can usually find something to enjoy while visiting a brewery with people who do love craft beer.

Minneapolis has a 3 hour craft beer tour that is all inclusive for one price. They are charging $85 per person. They keep the groups small.  This one limits the attendees to 14 people.  You get the bus tour, unlimited sampling at several breweries as well as snacks and a chance to learn more about the beer making process while visiting the breweries.

Could we do this type of thing in the St. Cloud area?  It seems like there are enough breweries around the area where this could be a great thing to do on a Saturday.  Get a group of friends together and jump around from brewery to brewery and not have to worry about driving. Until you have to go home, but there just organize someone to pick everyone up.  Easy.

Is this something that people around the area would be interested in?  I personally think it would be a great idea.  Maybe there could be several busses leaving at staggered times from different breweries around the area.

And if there are some that happen, they need to make it more well known.  Just sayin'

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.
