Spose

"Allegedly a rapper from Maine" (and that's according to the bio on his Instagram page), Spose has been a force in Maine since releasing his first-ever album, Preposterously Dank, back in 2008 -- a debut album that he released himself.

Since then (and even beforehand), Spose hasn't stopped blazing paths, dropping more albums, getting signed by record labels and leaving, and just continuing along a massive path to success while never forgetting his Maine roots.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
