Mountain State Brewing Company
A staple of West Virginia's craft brewery scene, Mountain State Brewing Company is now our readers’ four-time pick for the best locally brewed beer in the state. Based in Thomas, the company also operates pubs in Morgantown and Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. But brewing isn’t its only specialty. The flame-grilled flatbread pizza goes great with Mountain State’s Miner’s Daughter Oatmeal Stout or Cold Trail Ale. Mountain State brews are also distributed at more than 35 bars and restaurants across West Virginia and Maryland.
