If you spend your life only drinking Coke, Mountain Dew, and ginger ale (when you want to look sophisticated), what kind of life will you have lived? We say: an insubstantial one.

These great states of America are home to hundreds of craft soda-makers. Even if you commit yourself to an adventurous soda life, you could still miss out on great bubbly beverages from the ass-crack of Wisconsin, and the like.

Thankfully, our friends at First We Feast have catalogued the 50 regional sodas to try before you kick the bucket, complete with color commentary from a panel of non-experts.

Drink up.
