The editors at Men's Journal took on quite a task when they decided to tour the country one beer at a time.

Saying that there's no set of circumstances under which a person should drink bad beer, the magazine has drafted a list of 101 top-notch locally-brewed beers from across the country.

Tucson's own Dragoon Brewing Company landed a spot on the list with its IPA, which the magazine says is one of Arizona's two best beers.

"Dragoon keeps it real with this West Coast-style classic," the article says. "This relatively boozy brew is poised to pair with food or please your palate solo."

The magazine says that Arizona's other best beer comes out of Mother Road Brewery in Flagstaff.
