Beer voting

Sept. 13, 2012

Is it cool or not?

Virginia has three restaurants as regional finalists in voting on for the top craft beer bars in America. That’s more than any state in the Northeast (true Southerners might rebel at the category designation).

I’m familiar with two: Beer Run in Charlottesville (quaffed many a pint there, and it deserves its high standing), and Mekong Restaurant in Richmmond (great Belgian selection). Third on the list is The Birch Bar in Norfolk.

Check out the lists around the country and cast your vote at:



About admin

I am a writer. And a musician/songwriter. And a husband/father. I love good beer, the outdoors, the embrace of family, the company of true friends, the telling of a good story and the inner peace derived from quiet reflection in solitude. Recently I have specialized in beer writing. My most recent adventure is "Virginia Beer: A Guide from Colonial Days to Craft's Golden Age" published fall 2018 by University of Virginia Press. In October 2014, "Richmond Beer: A History of Brewing in the River City" was published by History Press. "Charlottesville Beer: Brewing in Jefferson's Shadow," followed in January 2017. Send me an email at As you can see from this site, however, my interests are broader than beer. Spend time, leave a comment or just enjoy. Lee
