This week Draft Magazine issued its annual list of America's 100 Best Beer Bars. It's a fun look at who is doing a great job with craft beer and a useful guide whenever heading to a new city.
Out for 2012 are The Rhino, Concordia Ale House (Portland, OR), and Uber Tavern (Seattle, WA). In for 2012 are Blue Palms Brewhouse (Hollywood, CA), Hopvine Pub (Seattle, WA), and The Mayor of Old Town (Fort Collins, CO).
My prediction for 2013? The new Manito Tap House in Spokane, WA, will make a strong run at the list, making it harder for The Rhino to make it back. They both have 50 taps, but all 50 at Manito are devoted to craft beer and I understand at least 34 of them rotate. By comparison, The Rhino has 8 or so "macro" taps and far fewer than half of the taps rotate.
What's your favorite beer bar?
