Local beer fans will be happy to know that this city recently snagged a top national rating. It turns out that Buffalo came in at #2 in Redfin’s list of 15 Best Cities for Beer Lovers. The ranking is well deserved, considering that the local brewery scene only recently experienced a growth surge. The ranking not only considers the number of breweries however, it also takes into consideration the following criteria:
- The number of breweries in their state per 100,000 adults aged 21+
- The number of active brewery permits in each state
- State beer taxes (lower ranked better)
- The median home sale price
- The city’s Walk Score (don’t drink and drive!)
