“This never gets old,” read a Facebook post by the bar sharing the news, which was released today.
“Following-up on its 2018 recognition, the Anchor reclaims its spot in our list,” the entry on Craftbeer.com read. “The Anchor is a woman-owned craft beer-centric neighborhood bar that has evolved with Wichita’s burgeoning downtown district. The Anchor’s brick building and tin ceiling remind customers of Wichita’s past, lending a nostalgic ambiance.”
The site picked its winners by asking Craftbeer.com readers to nominate their favorite craft beer bar in their states and fill out a survey about it. Through the survey, the site received nearly 8,000 nominations, and the bar with the most nominations from each state was named the winner.
