Craft beers are becoming more popular, so that means more breweries are popping up.

Researchers looked at data from more than 180 cities across the country and identified the 30 best places to open a brewery.

The analysis found Madison, Wisconsin is the 2nd best in the country, based on business environment and expense.

Two other Wisconsin cities made the list: La Crosse was ranked 9th overall, and Milwaukee was ranked #23.

Somerville, Massachusetts was ranked #1.

According to the Brewers Association, the number of craft breweries in the U.S. has grown from just under 1,500 in 2007 to more than 7,000 as of July 2018.
