You may find it odd that not a single international or West Coast beer made this list considering where this article started. I tried to keep these selections relatively close to home because while there are some amazing beers out there, there are also plenty of great brewers worth supporting in our own backyard. One of the best parts of this absurd hobby of mine is that by drinking local, you are doing something good by keeping money in the community and encouraging the local craft beer scene. Let's keep these special places around: mix-a-local-six.
