USA Today Includes Two Cleveland Breweries in Annual Readers' Choice Awards


  • Scene Archives
Cleveland and two of its popular breweries, Great Lakes Brewing Co. and Collision Bend Brewing Co. are nominated in USA Today's 10Best Readers' Choice awards, which, yes, you are free to vote in.

Collision Bend is nominated for Best Brew Pub — impressive considering it's only been open for about a year.

Great Lakes on the other hand, no stranger to the nation and to us Clevelanders, is up for Best Beer Label for Nosferatu, its Imperial Red Ale which is not even out yet. The spot is also nominated for Best Brewery Tour.

Cleveland itself is also nominated for Best Beer Scene, competing against 20 other cities around the country. Just one more thing to add to our list of accomplishments.

Voting for all three contests goes until noon, March 19. Winners will be announced Friday, March 23.
