Our friends over at the Huffington Post are having a great time seeking out all the best cities for local food spots around the USA. They are asking readers to send in names of their favourite city, as well as photos of the eatery and the food. At the same time, readers are building a national database which you can find by clicking on a state (Canadians where are you?) on a map, as part of their citizen journalism mapping project.

So what's hot and where? Asheville North Carolina has 135 restaurants and 17 farmers markets and 11 annual food festivals--this is a place to visit very soon. Cleveland is next, Healdsburg, California, Burlington Vermont, Salt Lake City and Bellingham, Washington are the latest to be rated. After the fold: the best beers in the USA.

They are busy little bloggers over at HuffPost: August is Beer month and so far readers have submitted the names of over 300 beers, focusing on micro breweries and "green" beers.

These hot summer days, people are loving beer from the New Belgium Brewery, Fort Collins, Colorado, Full Sail Brewing Co. Hood River, Oregon, Sierra Nevada Brewery, Chico, California, Great Lakes Brewing Co., Cleveland, Ohio, and the Alaskan Brewing Company, Juneau, Alaska.

Make your voice heard, send Huffington Post names and photos of your favourite local restaurant and micro brewery. : The Huffington Post Green
