Whether you like your brews hoppy, dark, or fruity—or just something that tastes good with bratwurst—Travel + Leisure readers voted on the best cities for savoring a great local beer.

No. 13 Nashville

8 of 21

Music City has a long tradition of wanting you to cry into your beer, not because of your beer. Winking to the good-ol’-boy beer geeks, Tailgate Beer (which relocated from San Diego to Nashville in 2014) has a 25-tap tasting room featuring its own brews (like the Blacktop Blonde) as well as a dedicated tap for each Tennessee brewer—like Yazoo (say it YEAH-zoo) and Jackalope. If you’d even like to bathe in beer, you can: Jackalope sells a Little Seed Farm soap made with its Ann Thunder American Pale Ale, named after Davy Crockett’s fictional wife.
