Just one Michigan location is in the running for "Best Small Town Beer Scene in the U.S." in a USA Today and 10Best Readers' poll.


A panel of beer experts has chosen 20 towns, each with a population of less than 30,000, as having some of the best beer scenes in the nation. That means the locations have plenty of festivals, great breweries, brewpubs, and beer bars to enjoy.

The Michigan town with a banging beer scene?

Traverse City!

Here's USA Today's praise for TC:

Traverse City has become a hotbed of craft beer action in the already beer-centric state of Michigan. The town features a sizable collection of breweries, taprooms, and brewpubs, including Jolly Pumpkin, North Peak Brewing Company, Brewery Terra Firma, Earthen Ales, and Right Brain Brewery.


Vote for Traverse City once per day through July 24 at noon here.

Traverse City isn't the only Michigan city getting love in USA Today's beer-related polls.

Grand Rapids is up for "Best Beer City in the U.S." as well!
