With more than 4,100 small and independent craft brewers operating in the country, there are more options than ever to enjoy great craft beer. To help beer lovers navigate their way to the best places they can take advantage of this phenomenon, CrafBeer.com—the Brewers Association website for beer lovers—recently polled readers for its annual Great American Beer Bars competition. New this year, a winner has been named in all 50 states and Washington D.C.
“CraftBeer.com readers know craft beer and 9,000 of them took the time to cast their vote rewarding their favorite beer bar in each state,” said Julia Herz, publisher of CraftBeer.com. “Cheers to each of the winners and the ever-increasing diversity of our local beer movement here in the U.S.”
Methodology: CraftBeer.com readers were asked to nominate their favorite craft beer bar in their state and fill out a short survey about what makes it so great including atmosphere, staff, beer selection and special events. Craft beer fans cast over 9,000 votes in total from August to December 2015.
