When it comes to beer, we all know that Missouri is the home of Budweiser.  I don't think I am going out on a limb by saying that our state loves beer.  There are a lot of craft breweries in the state, including Craft Beer Cellar in Sedalia.  Craft beer is becoming a lot more popular throughout the country.  Now you make like dark beers, stouts, sours, ale's or even your favorite domestic beer.  Lots of options.  Well, props need to be given to Piney River Brewing in Bucyrus Missouri.  They just got recognized for a big award.

World Beer Cup winners were selected by an international panel of 226 beer judges from 28 countries. Widely regarded as the “Olympics of Beer,” the 2022 World Beer Cup was the largest competition to date with 10,542 entries from 2,493 breweries in 57 countries.  So winning an award in any category is a big deal.  This particular beer has been available with blackberries, peaches, raspberries and blueberries.

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.
