Where Are The Best Breweries In The U.S.?
The crowd-sourced review service Yelp is helping beer lovers find the best breweries in the U.S. Based on a survey of the website's best customer reviews, Yelp has published a list the top 10 in the country. Four of the 10 were found in California, including San Francisco's Anchor Brewing Company and San Diego's Pure Project. Anchor Brewing Company topped the list, averaging a five-star rating over more than 500 reviews. Broken Compass Brewing in Colorado also had a five-star score from the 181 people who had reviewed them. Other breweries to make the nationwide list included Georgetown Brewing Company in Seattle Ranger Creek Brewing and Distilling in San Antonio and Argus Brewery in Chicago. With all the highly-touted breweries around the country, Americans may want to stop in for a pint. Luckily, a new study says a mild alcohol intoxication can help clear mental blocks and spark creative thought. Researchers in Austria say a pint of beer can help people loosen their focus and lessens overthinking.
