Announces 2018 Great American Beer Bars

Did you know there’s more than 6,000 small and independent craft brewers operating throughout the country? Needless to say, beer lovers have a bevy of options to indulge and delight in their favorite beverage. So, to help enthusiasts take advantage of where to find palate-pleasing pints in every state,—the Brewers Association’s website for beer lovers—surveyed its readers for its annual list of Great American Beer Bars.

“ readers have an extensive level of insight on what makes a beer bar truly stand out,” said Jess Baker, editor in chief, “The Great American Beers Bars, selected by nearly 8,000 individual nominations cast by readers, are each stewards of quality craft beer and beer service. These outstanding beer bars, taprooms and brewpubs introduce their customers to new and exciting beer experiences. And have been integral to the success of the independent craft brewing movement.”

Methodology 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. An overwhelming 7,700 votes were cast from November 2017 – January 2018.
