ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The award just snuck under the radar as St. Louis was busy celebrating the St. Louis Cardinals' Opening Day, but our city has kept its crown for the "best beer" in the U.S. 

It's the second year in a row that St. Louis was voted No. 1 for brews:

Here's what USA Today's 10 Best said about our beer: 

"Large German and Irish populations, plenty of water and rail connections pretty much destined St. Louis to have a thriving beer scene. The city is not only home to Anheuser-Busch, the world's largest brewer, but a host of other craft breweries and pubs the likes of 4 Hands, Urban Chestnut and Schlafly. The 50 taps at 21st Street Brewer’s Bar give beer lovers a chance to sample many local brews in one spot, while the popular Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar boasts a beer list of more than 200 labels."

And here's the rest of this year's top-10: 

2. Grand Rapids - Michigan

3. Richmond - Virginia

4. Milwaukee - Wisconsin

5. Fort Collins - Colorado

6. Asheville - North Carolina

7. Philadelphia - Pennsylvania

8. Chicago - Illinois

9. Denver - Colorado

10.  Cleveland - Ohio
