The good people of housemethod.com recently dove into the craft beer craze all over America to find out who has the most popular brewery in America. They took into account 4 main factors in determining the outcome of their research
number of Facebook followers, number of Instagram followers, Yelp score, and number of Yelp reviews.
This criteria isn't necessarily proving that these are the best breweries beer-wise in America...but perhaps the most popular or trendy. Colorado landed the #1 overall brewery...but the good news? New England was all over this top 150 list. Here's a snapshot of some of the top New England spots:
#2 - (MA) Boston Beer Co.
#19 - (MA) Harpoon Brewery
#20 - (ME) Allagash Brewery
#34 - (VT) The Alchemist
#58 - (MA) Tree House Brewing Co.
#71 - (ME) Lone Pine Brewing Co.
#87 - (CT) Fox Farm Brewing
