It’s time for Bay Area beer lovers to rally in support of our incredible craft beer scene by casting a vote for the Bay Area to claim the BeerCity USA 2011 title. The race was announced this morning by Charlie Papazian, who described it as “a chance for local beer communities to express their enthusiasm and support for their local breweries, bars, restaurants, and stores.” Last year Asheville, NC, won the prize and it just doesn’t seem right.
The Bay Area is the cradle of the craft beer movement and is home to over sixty breweries. There is no reason why our region shouldn’t be at the top of the heap. Get out and vote!
