For the Best Beer Town category in USA Today's 10Best Readers' Choice awards, a "panel of beer experts" nominated 20 places, "each [of which] offers an excellent brewery scene, great beer bars and gastropubs and a special place in beer history." Readers can vote for their favorites once a day until October 13. Naturally Portland made the list, with Allagash and In'finiti warranting special mentions. Semantically speaking, though, can Asheville, NC be both "Beer City USA" and a "Best Beer Town"? [USA Today]
