Montana has so many IPA's that breweries offer, which one is on top?

There are many beers that Montana has to offer, the micro-brew business in Montana has boomed over the last 15 or 20 years. We showcase many types depending on the time of year.

I feel like IPA's within the zeitgeist kind of had their day in the 2010's. However, The people that still love them, enjoy them more than ever because everyone has a great selection even to this day. It's that type of beer that if you like them, you like them. If you don't like them so much, you feel like people won't shut up about them.

If you look closely, It's not a beer from Missoula or Bozeman like a lot of people would think.

Turns out the best according to Vine Pair is Tumbleweed IPA from The Lewis and Clark Brewery in Helena, Montana.

A lovely beer offered all year long. Give it a try.

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.
