The micro-brew boom started here in Billings quite a few years back and while the beer gets better and better, beer drinkers get more annoying with every foam topped pint.

First foodies, then self important wine connoisseurs and now BEER SNOBS!

The website Priceonomics drilled down deep into restaurant and bar menus to find out what percentage do not include Bud, Coors or Miller Lite, thus coming up with a list of the top ten beer snob cities.

  1. Bellingham, Washington
  2. Oakland, California
  3. Washington D.C.
  4. Sacramento, California
  5. L.A.
  6. San Francisco
  7. Pasadena, California
  8. Rochester, New York
  9. Berkeley, California
  10. Louisville, Kentucky.

If you find yourself in an elite brew house in one of these cities, impress your friends by flexing your beer snob muscles by ordering a "Lost Abbey Deliverance". Then listen to the gasps as you spend over $25 for a 12 ounce bottle of pure stupidity.
