By the way, our neighbor's most "iconic" cocktails are the "Manhattan" in New York, no shock there. "Dating back to 1916, the drink has not changed much since it was first created and remains a classy cocktail, especially when visiting a sleek New York bar." In Pennsylvania, it's the "Fish House Punch". According to Far and Wide "In Philadelphia, along the Schuylkill River, a band of fishermen created bowls of punch in 1732, years before the Revolution. Their invention is now a tradition in the City of Brotherly Love."


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.
