Some of my favorite things are coming together all in one place. It's Muhlenberg County's largest celebration of the year. It's always a great time when you can get the classic vehicle out of the garage for some fun in the sun. We're ready to get our '57 Chevy or Chevelle out for the Rods & Ribs BBQ Festival. I can't wait to see all of the tricked-out trucks, muscle cars, and hot rods of all shapes and sizes. I love the music from Whiskey Alibi. They always put on a fantastic show! I can't wait to taste all of the delicious barbeque and food from the food trucks that will be on hand. Central City is a beautiful city, and I can't wait to see my friends.

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. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
