If there's one activity that I really missed during the COVID-19 pandemic shut-down, it was going out to eat. I certainly did my fair share of ordering out but we all know that's not the same. Experiencing a freshly prepared meal in a different environment is one of my favorite things to do and I have really enjoyed trying some restaurants within a 30-mile radius of Oneonta, NY over the last few months. It's a great way to get out of the house, enjoy a fabulous meal and see some of our area's natural beauty on the drive there.

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.

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.
