UNDATED (WJON News) -- Minnesota has three of the top craft beer producers in the nation.

The Brewers Association has released its annual craft brewing industry production report.

Based on beer sales volume, Summit Brewing Company in St. Paul is ranked #26 overall, August Schell Brewing Company in New Ulm is #29, and Surly in Minneapolis is #42.

Our neighbors to our east Wisconsin also has three breweries in the top 50 with New Galarus at #12, Minhas in Monroe at #15, and Stevens Point at #19.

North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa don't have any breweries in the top 50.
