Some AOL-affiliated company's list of the 20 best cities in the world to drink a beer
Some highlights: Prague is not on the list. No English cities are on the list. Northampton, Massachusetts is on the list (if you're wondering where Northampton is, so is most of Massachusetts). There is also this fact filled gem about San Francisco:
For any lover of American craft beer, San Francisco could be considered the Mecca of the American beer world. It was here that Fritz Maytag purchased the floundering Anchor Steam Brewery in the mid-1960s, reviving not only the brewery but several near-extinct beer styles, and re-introduced Americans to styles like Barleywine, Winter Warmer and IPA.
Sorry Portland, San Francisco is the American beer mecca. Because of Anchor who not only brew, but re-invented IPA, (and perhaps not steam beer) apparently.
