Billings came in No. 4 out of the 10 best cities. We are home to more than 40 bars and seven microbreweries. That works out to about one bar for every 2,800 residents.

We know this, but national recognition is always nice. SmartAsset looked at data on microbreweries, brewpubs and bars for 296 of the largest cities in the U.S. They considered the total and per-capita number of microbreweries and brewpubs in each city, as well as the average Yelp star rating for these establishments.

We are so lucky, it's hard to have a favorite.  Angry Hank's, Uberbrew, or Montana Brewing Co.  No one disappoints. Cheers.
