With all the craft beer companies and bars that have popped up around the area in the last few years, it's no surprise that Duluth is coming into it's own as a beer loving/drinking city.

According to GOMN.com a company called SmartAsset just released it's annual analysis of the best cities in the U.S for beer drinkers and Duluth came in #3 behind Asheville, North Carolina, and Portland, Maine. Plus it is the only Minnesota City to make it in the top 25!

The criteria was ranked among 300 cities and here is the breakdown:

  • Total number of microbreweries and brewpubs per 100,000 residents
  • Average Yelp score for breweries
  • Number of bars per 100,000 residents ( hard to believe we would beat out any town in Wisconsin in this category) :)
  • Average price for a pint of domestic draught beer

Fear not Wisconsin Residents...Greenbay did land at number # 9.
