Craft breweries have exploded in the United States over the past decade. There are more than 5,000 of them now and a lot even offer great food to go with that cold craft beer. Jared Cotter has the top three brew pubs across America worth checking out.
1. Wrecking Bar Brewpub in Atlanta, Georgia
The ATL is a modern jewel of a city, but the cool bar is tipping its glass to the past. It's set up in a Victorian mansion. Go for the brews and stay for the cuisine!
2. Great Lakes Brewing Company in Cleveland, Ohio
This 20-year-old brew pub is cranking out fresh beer and food. It's even credited for reviving the now trendy Ohio city neighborhood. They are famous for their Christmas Ale which sells out every year.
3. Four Peaks Brewing Company in Tempe, Arizona
Their building is almost older than Phoenix itself. It was even once a famous recording studio for music. Since 1996 they have been laying down some serious ale and the food is just as good.
Big thanks to Four Peaks Brewing Company and marketing manager, Erin Schultz!
