“CraftBeer.com’s mission is to tell stories about the people, communities and businesses who are the heartbeat of small and independent craft brewing in the U.S.,” said Jess Baker, editor in chief, CraftBeer.com. “We’re excited to shine a spotlight on the beer bars who prominently feature U.S. craft breweries and create memorable beer experiences. They are part of the awesome independent beer community we celebrate. Cheers to the winners on this year’s list.”
Methodology: CraftBeer.com readers were asked to nominate their favorite craft beer bar in their state. 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. Nearly 7,000 votes were cast during December 2018. The annual list has been a CraftBeer.com staple since 2012.
