City gets top-20 ranking as beer town
Penticton was named this week to a list of the top-20 beer towns in Canada.
Compiled by travel website Expedia, finalists were selected based on three criteria: the number of breweries, brew pubs and taps in town; the number of awards won by brewers; and overall creative spirit. Penticton did well in all three categories. “There’s a reason craft beer in British Columbia is famous, and Penticton nails it: Festivals, award-winning breweries, and entrepreneurial spirit,” Expedia said in an online article.
The other 19 best beer towns are: Victoria, Revelstoke, Whitehorse, Yellowknife, Regina, Montreal, Halifax, Regina, St. John’s, N.L., Tatamagouche, N.S., Nackawic, N.B., Magdalen Islands, Que., Halton, Ont., Vankleek Hill, Ont., Collingwood, Ont., Neepawa, Man., Swift Current, Sask., Lacombe, Alta. and Grande Prairie, Alta.
