We won. After a hard-fought tie in last year's annual BeerCity USA poll, there was little doubt about Asheville's victory this time. At the poll's close, Asheville had 39.9 percent of the vote, compared to 34.1 percent for rival Portland, Ore. However, that hasn't reduced the ire of some Portlanders against our fair city.
It's official: "Asheville, North Carolina is BeerCity USA 2010. While Portland, Oregon organized a healthy challenge against the western North Carolina city of Asheville, in the end the relentless craft beer enthusiasm for Asheville won out," writes Charlie Papazian, who started the BeerCity USA poll last year and ran it again this year. His comments appeared this afternoon here.
