I’ve professed my love for craft beers already. But when I saw this graphic GOOD magazine put together featuring the most popular craft beers in each state, I had to share. You all know how much I like maps of the United States. To those of you who have never had a craft beer, seek out the winning beer in your state and start there. To those of you who think you don’t like beer, seek out the winning beer in your state and reassess.

Did you know that Americans prefers beer as their alcoholic beverage? The rest of the world likes spirits the most. They don’t know what they’re missing.
Have you tried your state’s craft beer? Did the GOOD readers correctly pick “the most awesome, best-tasting, sustainably brewed, independently owned, community-oriented craft beer brewed in your state?”

Remember those awful chain e-mails your friends always forwarded to you? I hated them. Actually, I probably loved them when I got my first e-mail address at age 8 (email@example.com) since I loved having anything in my inbox at that stage of my life. Seriously, what other e-mail would an 8-year-old get? Thirteen years and multiple inboxes later, I’m not asking for more electronic correspondence. Still, I do enjoy the rare personal e-mail from a friend that directs you to a link, story, picture she thought you may be interested in seeing. My sister sent me one of those e-mails this week, and my first instinct was to forward it to all of my interested friends. But then I decided blogging about it would be better.

I kind of wish frozen custard was Missouri’s food instead of toasted ravioli, but that’s because I only have a mild appreciation for Italian food, and I love Ted Drewes. As for Illinois, I’m not surprised it’s deep dish pizza. That stuff is legend here.
Does the map represent your state’s food well? And will someone from South Dakota explain what chislic is?
