Boulevard, Free State make GOOD's state map of good beer

The beer makes the state in this map.

The quest to define our country by what we eat and drink continues with GOOD's, "The United States of GOOD Beer."

The readers of GOOD voted on which independent, sustainability-oriented craft brewer should represent a given state, a response to The Houston Press' The United States of Beer map. The goal was to knock out industrial brewers, meaning that Missouri is represented by Boulevard Brewing Co. on GOOD's map (not Budweiser). The Free State Brewing Co. retained its symbolic hold over Kansas. 

GOOD asked its readers, "What is the most awesome, best-tasting, sustainably brewed, independently owned, community-oriented craft beer brewed in your state?" So, not too specific a survey. The beer map (click here for a full-size version) is a collection of the brewery in each state that received the most votes. Idaho is still without a representative.

This is an easy (if slightly pretentious) map that could provide somebody with a heck of a guide to a beer-based road trip (wherein you drink at breweries, not while on the road). I'll happily concede Missouri to Boulevard and Free State to Kansas, although there are plenty of microbreweries and craft brewers that could try for the crown in future years.

Has anybody had a great craft beer actually made in Idaho?
