Virginia Bar Named "Best Beer Bar in America"

Okay, so technically there are no bars in Virginia, just restaurants that also sell alcohol. But that didn't stop fans of Mekong Restaurant in Richmond, VA from selecting it as the country's favorite beer bar in the "Great America Beer Bar" contest sponsored by the Brewers Association.

The Vietnamese restaurant boasts an extensive selection of Belgian and American craft beer. I've never made it to An Mekong's establishment, but his beer selection, along with the events he puts on, are well known. The establishment received more than 3,300 votes out of the 30,000 votes that were cast nation wide.

See for more on the voting and for regional results.


  1. What's that David? You've never been? OK, we certainly need to rectify this soon. So I invite you to come down this year. I'll buy the beer and we can talk guns.

  2. I'm definitely going to have to try it now.

    You hitting the Fun Show Saturday?

  3. Edmond, sadly no. But, I'm game! Maybe I'll bring MSgtB and introduce him to good beer.

    MSgt, no toy show for me this weekend. :-(
