Amanda Lukoff: Move over Wine country, a new beverage is taking some of the spotlight. At Away.

com we have highlighted three great beer towns to visit in the US.

San Francisco might be known for the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, and Alcatraz, but it's also a player in the Craft Beervana. As far back as the 19th century brewers here have been creating craft beers and it's considered the brewing center of the West Coast. Each year this city hosts a 10 day beer week with more than 300 events at breweries and bars that showcase nearly 70 local brewers.

Asheville in North Carolina in the heart of the Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge mountains exudes creativity and free spirit. So it's no wonder that this area has embraced craft beer and be named Beertown, USA four times by Examiner.

com.

Asheville's first successful brewery was opened in 1994, and now the city has more than 10 local craft breweries in the area. Portland, Oregon might get more publicity for beer than its neighboring city Bend, but Bend actually has a more breweries per capita. Take a tour on the Ben Ale Trail, the largest beer trail in the west.

The town also celebrates its Beervana title with the handful of beer celebrations throughout the year.

So whether you're a casual beer drinker or connoisseur of Hops & Barley plan a great escape to one of these beertowns.
