#38 Dos Perros: Yazoo Brewing Co., Nashville, Tennessee

State: This long, thin stretch of land bridging the gap between the Deep South, the Midwest, and the Appalachian backwoods is the center of the country music industry and, considered by some, the birthplace of the blues. Hard as it may be to believe, Isaac Hayes, the Allman Brothers and Hannah Montana all hail from the same state.

Brewery: Founded in 2003, Yazoo Brewing Co. has played witness to a whirlwind of changes as the state gradually embraced brewing. Yazoo became the first brewery in Tennessee to open a distillery in 2010, allowing it to make high alcohol beer.

Beer: Based on an Austrian-by-way-of-Mexico recipe, Dos Perros' meager 3.5 percent alcohol is a relic of Tennessee's old beer laws.

Difficulty of obtaining in Oregon: Very difficult. Yazoo does not distribute outside the state and stores there are not allowed to ship beer.

Rating: 57.4
