Some of the best beers in the United States has craft brewing operations in Pennsylvania, and with the craft brew sector climbing, albeit slowly, the number and quality of these beers makes heading to PA look more and more attractive for aficionados. Looks like it's time to plan a full-blown vacation in Philadelphia where I'm sure the bars are flowing with these impeccable suds.
Four brewers with regional operations made the new list of the top 50 U.S. craft-brewing companies, a trade association said Wednesday.
Troegs Brewing Co. in Hershey, Pa., cracked the list for the first time at No. 50, based on sales volume, the Boulder, Colo.-based Brewers Association said in its yearly ranking.
Others on the list are:
At No. 1, Boston Beer Co. is based in Boston, but has a major brewing facility in Fogelsville, Pa.
At No. 13, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is based in Milton, Del.
