If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that Ohio knows how to make good beer.

But which of our many fine breweries makes the best beer? Luckily, websites like BeerAdvocate are there to help us figure it out.

BeerAdvocate assigned weighted ranks to the beers, which are reviewed and rated by members of the site. Using their formula, BeerAdvocate determines the beers rankings based on how high they’ve been rated by users and how many users have reviewed the beer.

For instance, if a beer has a 4.5 rating but has been reviewed by 2,000 users, it will rank higher than a beer that has a 4.75 rating but less than 100 reviews.

So now that we all understand the way this works, let’s get to the reason you all are still reading.
