Rich O's medals in Rate Beer's "Best Beer Bars in the United States."
Thanks to my pal Jay for calling my attention to this!
Not to be outdone by the recent Beer Advocate accounting of the “Top 50 Places to Have A Beer in America” rankings, Rate Beer has released its own list of “Best Beer Bars in the United States.”
Both web sites compile subjective ratings submitted by registered users, so the process isn’t rigorously scientific – just good, clean fun and maybe short-term bragging rights.
Drum roll, please: Rich O’s Public House has earned a gold medal and a ranking of #3 in Rate Beer’s polling, compared to #19 at Beer Advocate.
Does this really mean we’re the third best such establishment in the whole US of A?
As noted previously, it’s just nice to be included in conversations like these and to know that we’ve worked hard to deserve being tossed into the mix.
But what I actually do like about this newfound notoriety is “New Albany” alongside Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Brooklyn and Baltimore. My friends, that’s a kick.
