Getting the rights from Disney to use their characters' images would normally cost an extravagant amount of money. But, Midland Brewing Company recently took advantage of an expired copyright on an iconic Mickey Mouse character. A picture of  'Steamboat Willie' will be featured on the new brew label.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
