More on Boulevard

According to Wikipedia, Boulevard is the largest craft brewery in all of Missouri. I stumbled upon Boulevard while living in Chicago years ago and I truly think their Unfiltered Wheat Beer the Hazy American Classic is one of the 5 best beers to drink during the summer months, some of their other popular beers include the Tank 7, the Dank 7, and the Pale Ale. I have been on many brewery tours and taking a tour of Boulevard is one of the big ones on my list that I still need to cross off, I hear it is a great tour!

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.
