One logically assumes that a magazine named Draft is about beer. That assumption would be correct. Draft Magazine is about beer. Uh, right? In the Jan./Feb. issue, Draft Magazine published a list of “Best Bars.” Now, in the March issue, they started to break down the list city by city. Here is what they discovered when they came looking, presumably, for Seattle’s best beer bars.

I could rant on and on, but I won’t. It’s not really worth ranting. It’s kind of sad, actually. It’s like listening to someone babble on and on about the San Francisco Giants and the New York Rangers being the best football teams in the NBA. You wonder if there is any value in correcting them.
Us folks here in Seattle know the good beer bars and we don’t need anyone from Phoenix telling us about the Seattle beer scene. I don’t necessarily mean to disparage Draft Magazine. It’s a fine magazine in many regards and I don’t think I’ve ever had a complaint before. I’m just suggesting that they missed the point this time. Strangely, it was their own point to begin with.
