City gets top-20 rank­ing as beer town

Penticton Herald - - LIVING -

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.
