America's Best Beer Bars

Slide 15 of 17

The Mitten Bar, Ludington, MI

Owner Megan Payment named The Mitten after the shape of her home state and curates a Michigan-only menu, with beers like Founder’s blood-red Blushing Monk, fermented with raspberries. Not only does the small-town bar court regulars with local bands and beers, but it also draws customers across state lines with hard-to-find kegs like Bell’s Brewery’s Hopslam Ale, made with pungent, aromatic hops and a dollop of honey.
