A new report has listed Cincinnati as one of the top-10 best cities
for beer drinkers.

The study by considered the total and per capita number
of microbreweries and brewpubs in each city, as well as average Yelp
star rating for the establishments in the 296 largest cities in the
United States.  

Cincinnati came in 10th on the list. Below is the caption about the
Queen City:

"The first of three Ohio cities to rank among the top 25 best cities
for beer drinkers, Cincinnati has a rich history as a producer and
exporter of great beer. That history stretches as far back as the
mid-19th century, when Cincinnati emerged as one of the leading
producers of beer in the entire country.

While much has changed since those early days, Cincinnati is still a
top beer city. It has 14 different breweries, including popular
microbreweries like MadTree and Rhinegeist. For those who want a taste
of the past, the city’s Brewery District offers tours of the
pre-Prohibition brewery buildings, some of which are more than 100
years old."

So, who came in first? The distinctive honor goes to Portland, Maine.
