Asheville, NC, population around 75,000. has 8 microbreweries (if memory serves). We bought a small case from one back from our visit the end of March, and have been enjoying the beer. We hope to go back one day and enjoy some more. Late March isn't the time to visit but that was when we were in the area.
For now we will have to be content with voting in this contest.
Haven't been to Portland, OR (the current leader) in years and years...hmmm, maybe after we go back to Asheville...(sigh, life is too short.)
