No, the best brewery in Minnesota isn't one of the big names like Surly. Well, at least according to Yelp reviews.

Buzzfeed asked the website for a list of the best brewery in every state, based on the number of reviews and star ratings.

And Minnesota's favorite brewery is ... drumroll please ... Junkyard Brewing Company in Moorhead.

The nano-brewery, which became licensed in Minnesota in 2013, has a five-star yelp rating with 43 reviews. People say they love the free popcorn in the taproom, the "diverse selection and adventurous spirit of the brewers," and the "friendly" and "knowledgable" staff.

Junkyard addressed the title of favorite Minnesota brewery in a post on Facebook, thanking its fans for all the "awesome" reviews.

The brewery offers about 10 beers at a time in its taproom, and it's been known to attract a line of people when it releases some of its popular styles in cans.
