top ten brewing cities

<< < (2/2)

goschman:
yeah very interesting. San Diego and Portland our my favorites being from Denver. I personally prefer Portland mainly because of the ease of accessibility. The number of breweries that can be visited on foot is pretty impressive as compared to other decent sized cities

Can't believe St Louis did not make the list.....

MDixon:
I scratching my head over the Asheville portion. Highland is one of the oldest, but I'm not sure why he focused on French Broad. Anyway, one of the criteria was "nationally recognized breweries" and Asheville ain't got 'em. Pisgah tends to get a bit of beer geek press, but in reality they don't distribute much outside of Buncombe County and NC has 100 counties. We did have one mediocre brewery close recently, but several others are opening. Anyway, fine with me Asheville is off his list, more for me without the rest of the world coming to town. ;)

Altamont
