RAVE Reviews, an independent, reader-supported website, has published its 2022 list of the top breweries in the Southwestern US, and it includes 30 fantastic watering holes. You can view the complete list on RAVE's website.
Beer drinkers out west have been kicking back with a cold one ever since the mid-19th century when brewmasters from all over the world immigrated here and set up shop. Beer lends itself perfectly to the local cuisine in these parts, and many taprooms have impressive pub menus to accompany whatever is on tap.
Using a 20-point scale for factors like nostalgia, popularity, cult following, destination, and scarcity, RAVE's list includes top breweries from Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma.
