Portland claims top spot for beer, based on population

Portland’s growing craft beer scene has a new title to add to its portfolio of national recognition.

Portland ranks No. 1 with the most breweries per 50,000 people in the United States, according to C+R Research, an analytical firm based in Chicago. The city claimed the top spot with 18 breweries per 50,000 people and narrowly surpassed second-ranked Asheville, North Carolina – host to 17 breweries per 50,000 people. For craft brew experts, the ranking is exciting, yet unsurprising in the wake of the growing beer presence in Maine.
