It is a good time to be a beer lover because craft brews are better and easier to find than ever before. Yahoo Travel went in search of brews worth traveling for. For help with some of the beer choices, we turned to the beer experts at Untappd, the social gathering app where beer drinkers can share ratings of beer and breweries with each other. The ratings are on a scale of 1-5. While people frequently give an individual beer a 5 rating, the likelihood of that perfect rating on all the beer produced by a brewery is nil. Taking into account the variability among drinkers, any brewery with an average rating of 3.5 from several thousand reviewers is worth trying.

With that in mind, here are the top hop stops we found in each state:


Reformation Brewery boasts a goal of setting beer free. We think they have accomplished just that. Reviewers give the brewery a rating of 3.76 for the 44 beers produced so far.
