For the second year in a row, Charlie Papazian, president and founder of the Brewers Association, is hosting a poll during American Craft Beer Week to determine BeerCity USA. Last year the winner was a tie between Portland, Oregon and Asheville, North Carolina. Both are great beer towns to be sure, but I think the Bay Area can do better this year. We started off strong, but apparently there was some funny business going on with the voting — one of the vagaries of living in Silicon Valley, I suppose — and we ended up in fourth place. To make it easier to vote this year, just choose below and click on the “vote” button. Obviously, vote for your favorite city, but it goes without saying that I would encourage you to choose “San Francisco/Oakland – Bay Area, CA.”
