2012 Drinker's Choice Award Winners

Over the past month, we put out a call for your opinions, and you, the drinkers of Philadelphia, have answered in resounding fashion, voting up a storm in our second annual Drinker’s Choice Awards. Races were quite close in several categories, a testament to our thriving drinking scene. What bar in Philly isn’t a great beer bar, these days? Who doesn’t have an impressive cocktail program to complement their food? While we love them all, someone had to come out on top. To that end, we’re thrilled to announce the 2012 Drinker’s Choice winners.

Each winning establishment will receive a special trophy, and – more importantly – some serious bragging rights. Stay tuned throughout the next week as we chat with the first place champs and tell you more about what makes them great.

Note: We apologize for the formatting, we are cleaning it up...apparently our initial draft had issues with Mobile Devices.
