September 18, 2014 | Category: Beer Awards

USA Today is polling the United States for their Readers Choice Best Beer Town and are crowning the winner in October.

“Craft beer is taking the nation by storm, and you have until Monday, OCT. 13 at NOON to vote for your favorite beer town in the USA. 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. Vote once per day until the contest ends.”

We in Florida all know the amazing beers being brewed and showcased at breweries, bars, stores and restaurants around the Sunshine State but unfortunately the rest of the country might not know yet. Being that Tampa is the only Florida city in the race, help bring the crown home to FLA!

What do the experts have to say about Tampa?

“Tampa is home to more than 30 breweries and brew pubs, with more opening every day. The inventive and progressive lineup of breweries started in “Cigar City” keeps the offerings fresh and relevant, while the Florida sunshine makes Tampa an excellent place for enjoying a brew outdoors, even in the dead of winter.”

Of course,  this is just a snap shop of the amazing craft beer renaissance going on in the Tampa Bay Area and not just in Tampa but St. Pete, Tarpon Springs, Pinellas Park, Largo, Dunedin, Sarasota… the list goes one. So please vote here: and help Florida bring home the title! Feel free to vote once a day as well.
