Wisconsin beer fans have been wondering for years which beer is their favorite.
Now, a new poll has revealed which of Wisconsin’s three brewpubs makes the best beer.
The question was asked via Twitter during a beer festival hosted by The Brewers Association, and the results were revealed.
“The Wisconsin Brewers are very proud to be part of this industry,” said Sam Cagle, co-owner of Milwaukee’s Blue Moon Brewing Company.
“Our beer is consistently top-rated and consistently on the top shelf.”
Wisconsin craft brewers have enjoyed a rapid rise in popularity in recent years.
In 2016, the state’s breweries made $1.2 billion in sales.
Blue Moon, the flagship brewpub in Milwaukee, has become a go-to destination for beer lovers who want to sample and drink a range of styles.
“We’ve been brewing beer for more than 40 years,” Cagle said.
“I’m not going to lie, when I look at the list of breweries in this state, I don’t think I would’ve come out of it if it weren’t for Blue Moon.”
The survey asked beer drinkers whether they thought the beers on the Blue Moon menu are “authentic” or “light.”
Fifty-nine percent said they thought they were authentic, while 24 percent said the same for the Blue Point offerings, while 7 percent said their selections were light.
Forty-one percent said neither was accurate, while 3 percent said light.
Beer lovers were also asked which of the Blue Moons beers are their favorites, with 35 percent picking the Blue Monkey and 15 percent choosing the Blue Fire.
Blue Monkey was voted the best in the survey by nearly 80 percent of the respondents.
