Next year's party, this year's Beer City, USA

By Steve Siciliano

We are pleased to announce that the 2013 Siciliano’s Home Brew Party, the tenth annual, has been scheduled for Saturday, May 11th, at Johnson Park.

While the party is a year away we are already thinking of ways to make the tenth annual festivities truly special. Keep your eyes peeled to The Buzz for continued updates.

In other news, the polls have closed and it appears that Grand Rapids has tied with Asheville, North Carolina for the title of Beer City, USA, with each city receiving 32% of the votes. Does this mean that GR will be sharing the 2012 honors with Asheville or will the winning city be announced after a final tabulation of the votes? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. At any rate, kudos are in order for both cities and whatever the final outcome, this further validates our city’s growing reputation as a mecca for craft beer enthusiasts.

Update: Contest organizers have named Asheville and Grand Rapids co-winners for 2012.

Coincidence? We think not.
