“We’re up against 20 American towns, each with a population of less than 30,000, that were chosen by a panel of beer experts as having some of the best beer scenes in the nation,” the city said in its newsletter. “The top 10 winners, determined by your vote, will be announced on Friday, Nov. 4.”
Little Cottage Brewery is also up for “Best New Brewery of 2022.”
“Located in Avondale Estates, Georgia, Little Cottage Brewery is a heavy metal-themed brewery,” according to USA Today. “Little Cottage describes itself as ‘small batch brews with a passion for big flavors.’ Coming from the ‘Faucets of Fatality,’ guests will find a variety of Little Cottage’s brews. Keep an eye out for ‘Balthazar,’ a ‘light, crisp and refreshing Kölsch,’ and ‘Bang! POW! Zap!’ a heavily fruited sour ale.”
