BusinessInsider.com and Thrillist.com reported this week on a map of the United States that highlights the top beverage of choice most associated with each state. Budweiser owns Missouri; Miller has Wisconsin; Jack Daniels is Tennessee's drink, obviously.
And Alabama: It's Good People Brewing Co. in Birmingham, one of the many microbrewers who are trying to make their mark in our state. (Unseating Good People should be a nice goal for the brewers at Cheaha Brewing Co. in Anniston, whose own microbrews we're still waiting to savor.)
Even if you're not a big drinker, the map's worth a look. Lots to debate here.
