There are several options for brewery enthusiasts in The Sunflower State, where about 30 breweries have popped up in just the past decade.

As Kansas Agland reports, Beaver – the smallest town in Kansas – has become a destination for pub crawlers since Mo’s Place Grill and Brewpub began serving their brew in 2004. The brewery now belongs to Austin Bell and Dale Kaiser who reopened it as Beaver Brewery at Mo’s Place last February.

Once open, the brewery will offer more than 30 recipes and currently has six featured beers including Space Cowboy, Demon Red Ale, Pete’s Brown Ale, Uncle Johnny’s Cream Ale, Samurai Cowboy and Maurice Wit.

The craft beer trend has hit Oklahoma in a big way, reports The Oklahoman.

A few years ago, Oklahoma only had one brewery. Now, the Sooner State boasts 15 breweries--and some of them are gaining national attention.

American Solera was recently honored with a “Best New Brewery in the U.S.” award. And, at February’s Best of Craft Beer Awards held in Bend, Oregon, Anthem Brewing Co. took home a number of awards. Meanwhile, in Europe back in 2010, the Oklahoma brewery known simply as “Choc” won several awards.

Few people connect craft breweries with cattle feed. But passing along the spent grains from the brewing process, like barley and wheat, to livestock ranchers is a common practice. Although now, that relationship could be in jeopardy.
