According to the Brewers Association, the average American lives within 10 miles of a brewery.  Some Americans are luckier than others.  

There are many great beer cities such as San Francisco, Philadelphia and Boston.  You’ll even find incidences among beer enthusiasts in Portland, Oregon, Seattle, Washington and Denver, Colorado often battling over bragging rights as “Top Beer City, USA.” They’re all out of contention for top honors when it comes to actually calculating the number of breweries per capita in America’s towns.   

Denver isn’t even in the running when compared to Portland,  Oregon’s per capita rating.   And if you crank the numbers Portland, Maine actually beats out Portland, Oregon!

Yes, San Diego has lots of breweries too, but there’s a lot of people living in these cities.   What city can claim to be Beertown, USA?   HOOD RIVER OREGON!
