Boulder, Colo., March 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, CraftBeer.com —the Brewers Association ’s website for beer lovers—released its annual list of Great American Beer Bars, celebrating establishments across all 50 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico, that readers voted as top spots to enjoy independent beer. With nearly 8,000 breweries in the U.S., beer bars continue to lead the way in introducing great beers with great service. This year, approximately 40 percent of the beer bars CraftBeer.com readers nominated are making their first-ever appearance on the list.

“You know a great beer bar when you’re in one. There’s something about the beer menu, the food, the service, the atmosphere, and sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with other beer lovers who were drawn there for the same reasons,” said Jess Baker, editor in chief, CraftBeer.com. “Great beer bars, like the ones our readers nominate, are instrumental in growing this wonderful community that celebrates small and independent U.S. craft brewers.”

Beer bars recognized as Great American Beer Bars were selected by popular votes and asked to provide information on their beer bars to confirm their intent to be listed. Over 6,000 votes were cast during the voting period (December 13, 2019 – January 6, 2020). The annual list has been a CraftBeer.com fan favorite since 2012.
