The Atlantic City festival, coming up in two weeks, was picked among 20 events by a panel of judges. The top 10 winners were then picked by a public vote. 

The Philly Craft Beer Festival in Philadelphia also made the top 10, filling in spot 9. 

This year's Atlantic City beer fest will occur on March 31 and April 1 at the Atlantic City Convention Center. Headlining bands for three four-hour sessions include Flogging Molly, The Front Bottoms and Streelight Manifesto.
