AHA!  So 7th out of 50 makes PA, technically, a T14 of beer!  (7/50 = top 14%)...  sweet.  We're the Georgetown of beer.

Hands down, Philadelphia.

In PA, you've got all of the following as essentially local beers:

Dogfish Head


Almost worth going to Penn on its own. Also available in the DC area - anyone in points south or north of the mid-atlantic seen it? Can you get Dogfish in NYC? Raleigh/Durham?
Stats: 174, 3.38 (Georgetown), decent ECs, 4 yrs int'l WE
Applied: Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Chicago
Donged:
Waitlisted: Michigan
Accepted:  UVA (in-state), Northwestern, NYU

To be completely fair, it is out of Rehoboth Beach, DE, and definitely not Philadelphia or PA.  But it is all over the place in the city, like every other bar.  They make some good beers.  I get them confused with Flying Fish though; can't recally who makes what brews from time to time.

Hell, I was even able to get a couple of Dogfish Head porters at a concert at the Tweeter Center once, it's so common.

University of Michigan has this fabulous little bar about a block from the law school - it's called Ashley's. They have 65 beers on tap - and a whole menu of bottled choices. It is fabulous - and not terribly expensive. There are some great beers and bars in Michigan 'cause we've got not much else to do in the winter.

Dogfishhead is available in NYC, but not widely.

I think they have it on tap at Dewey's Flatiron right by the Flatiron building... even better, $30 gets you all you can drink and all the wings you can eat on Sundays.

If you want good brew come to Canada. Or Seattle, they probably get some of the good British Columbia microbrews. Besides that, whatever. All American beer is weak and tastes like water.

So, Praetor, you hail from a country where everyone talks like they have a lobotomy AND they put tomato juice in thier beer, your opinion doesn't matter.  Kinda like Canada in international politics.

Also, didn't mean to ride PA so hard.  Just thought it was funny somebody would actually mention The Rock in a discussion of microbeweries.  Notice OR rules in terms of per capita brewing as per those numbers above.

Hey -- I wasn't mentioning Rolling Rock as if it were a micro-brew.  Yeungling isn't either.  I was just getting on a tangent of all things PA-beer related and chucked those two into the mix.  My apologies if I came off like a total idiot :)
