We Are The Champions

So the results of the Beer City USA poll are in, and we are tied with Portland for the country's favorite beer city. I think that is a great result, and Asheville should be proud to be tied with Portland, a great beer city in its own right. I think one of the things that makes Asheville's beer scene so unique is the emphasis that this town has on eating and drinking local. It is amazing that a town of our size can support so many breweries. In addition to our great local beer, Asheville has proven that they like beers from all over the world, as evidenced by the success of such local businesses as Bruisin Ales and the Thirsty Monk. So raise a glass to us and to Portland, and I look forward to celebrating with y'all at the Orange Peel.

In honor of our victory, I wrote a little verse, sung to the tune of "We Are The Champions". If you want me to pen the rest of the song, please send a donation.

We've drank our beer
Pint after pint
We voted all day
And into the night
The voting was close
But we came through
We've had our share of ales and lagers
And we drank quite a few

We are the champions – and Portland
And we'll keep on drinking - till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the beer
