One of the most looked forward to events each year is the Prosser Beer and Whiskey Festival.  Not only is the festival a draw locally, but people come from both sides of the Cascade Mountains to enjoy some of the finest beer and whiskey the region has to offer.

It is an evening of food, fun, and music, along with plenty of suds and spirits to go around.  The Prosser Chamber of Commerce partners with the Port of Benton and Tour Prosser to put on the event.  The Festival began in 2013 and has taken place every year with the exception of 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19.  It made a triumphant return last year and is looking to build off that momentum in 2023.

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. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
