Conde Nast Traveler: Asheville is #2 beer city in America

In a list of “America’s Best Beer Cities,” Conde Nast Traveler picks Asheville as number two, behind Cleveland, Ohio.

Here’s what Joshua M. Bernstein writes about Asheville:

“Over the holidays, I spent several pleasantly buzzed days in Asheville, North Carolina, which has a dense, walkable collection of world-class breweries. I ditched the car and strolled from Wicked Weed, which specializes in hoppy IPAs, to Burial Beer for an a.m.-friendly Skillet Donut Stout and Twin Leaf for its deceptively potent Luminosity Belgian–style tripel. Finally, I plopped down at Wicked Weed’s brand-new Funkatorium offshoot to overdose on sour brews. Now my liver needs a vacation.”—Joshua M. Bernstein, author, The Complete Beer Course
