The Star Tribune sent a survey to brewers in the state requesting information about their favorite brews. We limited our requests to those licensed and brewing only in Minnesota during 2013. Those that responded are included in the graphic.
Our matchmaker computes the mathematical distance between the input values and every brew in our system. All five characteristics are given equal weight. Brews with any unknown values are disqualified.
