Grand Rapids is Beer City USA 2013
It was announced today that our hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan, won the vote again for Beer City USA, and this time Grand Rapids won it outright. We shared the title with Asheville, North Carolina, last year.
Our fellow Michigan cities Kalamazoo and Ann Arbor also made the top ten list this year.
Check the announcement, with final vote counts and more information, made by Charlie Papazian right here
. This announcement also marks the kickoff of American Craft Beer Week
, which lasts May 13 through May 19 and is a celebration of the culture and community of small and independent craft breweries here in the U.S.
Thanks to everyone who voted in the Beer City USA poll, and we hope to see you out (and online) celebrating craft beer this week!
