    1. Columbus of course. You can stay at the Brewdog Doghouse Hotel and have taps in your room.

    That is awesome. I'm going to convince my wife that our next family vacation needs to be in Ohio.

    Chicago for sure. Great beer scene, incredible restaurants, good public transportation, lots of flights into O'Hare from just about anywhere.

    Being from Oklahoma, my vote would be for KC or even Lawrence, or St. Louis

    Detroit northern suburbs. Royal Oak is well positioned, offers busy nightlife and youth-to-older culture-- but prefer Farmington Hills so I don't have to drive (Lyft more likely) there.

    Minneapolis or St. Paul both have amazing beer scenes. 20 minutes separate the two and they are connected by light rail. Everyone knows about Surly, but everyone will remember Barrel Theory, Dangerous Man, Summit, Fair State, Indeed, Insight, I think you get the picture.

    Madison has the infrastructure (Great Taste of the Midwest) in addition to be a great city all around.
