2011 Drinker's Choice Award Winners!

2011 Drinker's Choice Award Winners!

The votes have been tallied, hanging chads cast aside, and results tabulated.  Below are the winners of our first annual Drinker's Choice Awards.  While the entire process was a bit rockier than we had initially planned, we think our users have chosen wisely!  Please keep in mind that the bars and restaurants in each category were nominated by users, so even those who didn't win the top prize are still among the best in Philly.

The winning bars will be receiving a special commemorative trophy that we're making all by ourselves (be afraid, be very afraid).  In addition to the trophy and bragging rights, they'll also get some special Pint Glasses declaring their victory, so keep your eyes peeled for those when you visit these great spots!
