Grand Rapids vies for 'Best Beer Town' title
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.”
