The online poll that originally named Grand Rapids BeerCity, U.S.A. might be dead, but another one has popped up at one of the nation’s largest newspapers.

USA Today is hosting a poll on its 10Best site for the country’s “Best Beer Town.”

People can vote once a day until the poll ends at noon on Oct. 13.

Grand Rapids appears to have a large lead in the poll.

“Craft beer is taking the nation by storm,” the site says. “Our panel of beer experts picked 20 of the nation’s best cities for beer-centric travel — each offers an excellent brewery scene, great beer bars and gastropubs and a special place in beer history.”
