A while back, we asked you to help get Cincinnati a nomination for BeerCity USA. You all did great at voting and getting the Queen City her rightful place on the ballot. But, a blogger from Indiana tweeted:
Baffled on how Cincinnati made the list for Best Beer Town and Indianapolis, Louisville, Lexington left off the board.
We know how Cincinnati got on the ballot and the others didn’t: Hoperatives and other believers in better beer in Cincinnati got the word out and voted our fair city on the ballot. As a Cincinnati beer fan named Claire posted in the comments area for the ballot:
Cincinnati has the German history and the beer brewing and drinking history. When ax-wielding prohibitionist Carrie Nation visited the city at the turn of the century, there were so many saloons, she gave up in despair. “I would have dropped dead from exhaustion,” she declared.
Now, the hard work begins. Reigning champ Asheville, NC is looking to hold their title, but Grand Rapids, MI and St. Louis, MO are also getting lots of votes. Like before, the polling system allows only one vote per computer/IP address. But, if you have access to more than one, there are no rules that should prevent you from voting more than once. So spread the word that everyone you know needs to get out the vote for Cincinnati for BeerCity USA!
