CraftBeer.com, the consumer website for the Brewers Association released today the results of an online poll that took place in the last half of August. Here’s how they arrived at the 2013 Great American Beer Bar Selected by CraftBeer.com Readers. “CraftBeer.com asked readers to nominate their favorite craft beer bars in the country, and received over 5,000 nominations, a 117 percent increase from last year. The choices were then narrowed down to the 10 most nominated bars in each of the five regions of the country. Over 37,000 votes were cast in total, a 23 percent increase from last year, resulting in the top three overall and regional winners. Voting was conducted from August 19 until August 30.” I’ve never been to any of the top three, so I guess I’ve got some travel plans to make.
The overall winners were roughly on the eastern half of the country.
The Pacific (west coast) winners are as follows:
- The Bier Stein, Eugene, OR
- Toronado, San Francisco, CA
- Prospectors Historic Pizzeria & Alehouse, Denali National Park, AK
Great to see the Toronado making the list.
