HOP TO IT
In 1873, there were more than 4,000 breweries in the United States. That number dropped to zero with the arrival of Prohibition in 1920, and although a handful survived the Volstead Act, there were fewer than 300 in the entire country for most of the 20th century. Today, the industry has bounced back — to more than 6,200 breweries, most of which are small and independent craft breweries with numbers that continue to climb dramatically each year. Still, if they were people, the oldest breweries in most states would hardly be old enough to buy a beer. Here are 20 that likely wouldn't have to show ID.
