Ooops, almost forgot about this today. Round 1 was not unlike the NCAA counterpart, where clear favorites took their victories easily but you’d find a young upstart on occasion that separates itself from the pack.

Some of the highlights include new kid on the block Six Row Brewing’s Kolsch taking down a local mainstay in O’Fallon Wheat!  Buffalo Brewing’s Buffalo Tail IIPA taking down the Schlafly Pilsner in a 67% to 33% battle and Amalgamated Brewing’s Dunkel taking out Highlands Brewing Company’s Oatmeal Stout in a 55% to 45% battle.

But Round 2 has started. Time to get voting! With the exception of Morgan Street and Trailhead, each brewery still has at least a single beer remaining. This should be a much more interesting and difficult.
