And a few states had a unique employer, like Boeing in WA, a food retailer in NJ and MGM in NV. But for the entire Southern block from VA to FL over to TX plus IL & OH, it's Walmart. In VA, it was the ship yards in Tidewater 30 years ago, then Food Lion like 15-20 years ago, now Walmart. Growing up in Balmur, the docks and Beth Steel used to be huge employers, and now it's the U of Md system. It's not like I didn't realize it before, but this state by state list shows quite starkly that we've become a service economy.

    Man. Looking at TN, I remember when Eastman Kodak employed a little over 40,000 as the state's largest employer in the early 90s. Looked at their wiki page and the it looks like they're down to just under 15,000.

    One of the most depressing sights I've seen is that enormous shuttered factory right off the main drag through Elizabethton, TN.

    Can we expel Ohio and Kentucky from the U.S.?

    Nice to see Devil's Backbone and Flying Dog representing. Though I'm a little jealous of OR - Dead Guy Ale is about my favorite.

    I don't buy #9 in VT. Even people there recognize that it's gross.

    It's not the most checked-in beers of people in the state, it's the most checked-in beers MADE in the state. What is made in Vermont and more widely distributed than Magic Hat #9?

    Woodchuck would probably win VT if they included cider.

    One 'hometown' player is an academic all american walk on type, and the other is a 3 star that average 7 min a game. So there's that.
