America's Best Beer Cities 2011
No. 3 Seattle
AFC voters loved only two things more than beer in this Pacific Northwest city: coffee (No. 1) and farmers' markets (No. 2). Both are in great form at downtown's Pike Place Market, where you can also check out the Pike Brewing Company—home of the Pike Kilt Lifter, which resembles a single-malt scotch. Another locals' favorite: the Elysian Brewing Company, where you can sip a Dragonstooth Stout.
