Andre Meunier shares news of a new study by C+R Research, which tallies the number of breweries per capita for more than 500 cities in the country.

Anyone who thinks of Portland, Oregon as the craft brewing capital of the country might be surprised to see the other Portland, in Maine, leading the list. Portland isn't even the first city in Oregon on the list: that honor goes to Bend, which comes in third.

Other cities in the top ten include Asheville, North Carolina; Boulder, Colorado; Kalamazoo, Michigan; Vista, California; Greenville, South Carolina; Pensacola, Florida; and Missoula, Montana.

If you're still wondering about Portland, Oregon—it can be found in the eighth spot on the list.
