Minnesota’s craft beer is way better...
While it’s true that Wisconsin is home to oh-so-glorious New Glarus, it is also true that New Glarus alone does not a good craft beer state make. Seriously, who cares what a certain lifestyle site that rhymes with “illest” says? Especially when we’ve got breweries like Summit, Surly, Fulton, Bauhaus, Indeed, Steel Toe, Brau Bros, Lift Bridge. Shall we continue? Okay! Insight, Fair State, Dangerous Man, Lake Monster, Badger Hill, and... ooh, you get the idea.
... and its big cities are way bigger
Waaay back in the day when Milwaukee was still home to the Braves it was roughly the same size as Minneapolis. Nowadays the greater Milwaukee area comes in at about 1.75 million and while that may be more than they used to have, the Twin Cities' metro area has nearly tripled in size, pushing 6 million at last check. If that’s not people voting with their feet, we don’t know what is.
