This North Carolina City Named Best Beer City In The Country

A North Carolina city has been named to the "Best Beer City" in the country list. USA Today announced the "Best Beer City" list as part of its "10 Best Readers Choice 2023" awards. Asheville North Carolina was on the list! The article adds this about Asheville. The “Paris of the South” offers an impressive number of breweries, friendly beer bars (Thirsty Monk, The Bywater), and bottle shops (Appalachian Vintner) that provide enthusiasts with easy access to more than 100 local beers. First-time visitors often start out at Wicked Weed’s comprehensive brewpub, and adventurous types make a beeline for the brewery’s “Funkatorium,” where sour and funky beers are served. Mmmmm Wicked Weed! One of many favs! If you head up to the Ashville area make sure you grab a brewery tour. It's well worth your time. I loved the Sierra Nevada tour. Grand Rapids, Michigan was once again voted the Best Beer City in the U.S. for the third year in a row. USA Today touts "The city's official 'Beer City Ale Trail' lists more than 80 breweries in the surrounding area, and the local calendar is constantly filled with beer festivals, events, and promotions." The rest of the top 10 are: Philadelphia Indianapolis San Diego Asheville, NC Milwaukee Tampa Chicago Atlanta Minneappolis Check out the full report here.
