These cities said to be best for beer drinking

Submitted by on March 5, 2010 – 1:34 pm3 Comments

The travel site Gadling recently posted a list of “The 24 greatest cities for drinking beer.

I’ve been to several of these towns, and a visit to any of them certainly would be a fun road trip for beer.

And I certainly can’t disagree with No. 24.

I might have added Sarasota, Fla., the last city I lived in before moving to the Orlando area. It’s rapidly becoming a destination for craft beer lovers. I’ll write more about the burgeoning Southwest Florida brew scene in a later post.

What about you? Have you ever explored the beer culture of the listed cities? Any you would add?

    I lived in Sarasota for 3 years and never realized there was any kind of “beer scene” there. What brewers are there?

  • Gerard says:

    No “brewers,” per se, other than the Sarasota Brewing Company in Gulf Gate. But several great beer bars: Cock ‘n Bull has long been there; new additions to the scene include Shamrock (old bar with a new craft beer emphasis); World of Beer on University; Stairway to Belgium on Main Street downtown; Mr. Beery’s in Gulf Gate; and one on Longboat Key whose name escapes me. Also newer retail outlets such as Total Wine & Beer and Whole Foods.

  • Willy says:

    Wow, sounds like Sarasota has grown up a lot since I was there. Granted, I was there from 92-94, so there’s lots of time for growth. 🙂

    My favorite bar at the time was a bluegrass bar — but it had no “craft beers” from what I recall. Cool bar, though!
