Celebrator lists it’s top 10 American Cities for beer;

1- Salt Lake City– With it’s incredible brew pubs and much-drinking populas guzzling from free-flowing beer fountains throughout the city, Salt lake earns (once again) the top prize! Okay, I’m kidding- the top spot goes to Portland.

2- San Francisco– Totally cool city for pretty much everything you can imagine. Is there anything that San Fran isn’t in the top ten for (other than lowest cost of living)?

3- Denver– Sports-crazy town with all four major sports and a brew-pub for every ten people (it seems). Great place to be during any championship season.

4- Seattle– Techie geeks can pound back the brew- how else could someone get through 56 straight hours on the computer programming?

5- Philly– City of Brotherly drinking

6- San Diego– Beach parties account for 90% of beer consumed

7- DC– Lots of drinking on the hill? This explains a lot.

8- Boston– Celebrations are up since the Red Sox took the Series

  1. I would argue Austin should at least be in the Top Ten for the following reasons:

    1. 6th Street
    2. 5th Street, 4th Street…
    3. – note UT is number one- HOOK ‘EM HORNS!!!!
    4. Austin is number 5 on drunk cities- that has to mean good beer (most people use cabs since the parking is limited or stay in hotels downtown, not too bad actually).
    5. Umm, we’re in the SOUTH where beer is a normal part of dinner once you hit 21… (even though I don’t drink).
    6. Near Shiner brewery- huge beer down here; tons of local brew pubs around town!

    I’m competitive what can I say? You challenged me! Austin rocks! I don’t even drink beer but it seems to be muy popular down here! Austin really is a fun place to be (even though I’m blogging on a Friday night…)!
