stlhopswikiWhoops, got a little busy yesterday and totally missed out on posting about the results from Round 2 of the STL Hops St. Louis Beer Challenge. We had some awesome match-ups in Round 2 and some very narrow victories.

The Schlafly American IPA continued it domination of this tournament with a decisive victory over 4 Hands Divided Sky Rye IPA. But 4 Hands is still in this one with their War Hammer Imperial IPA handily beating the Square One Park Ave Pale. But the closest match of this tournament has to be Buffalo Rye IPA narrowly eking out a victory over Urban Chestnut’s Winged Nut. Rye IPA will be up against 2nd Shift’s Brew Cocky in the Sweet 16, so we’ll see if it can keep up its winning ways.

There are some big matchups going into this 3rd round including a couple of breweries facing off against each other with Civil Life’s Scotch Ale going up against the very strong American Brown. There are 16 beers from 8 breweries still remaining so get going and vote for your favorite beers!

Round Dates:
Round 3 – Thu Mar 22
Round 4 – Mon Mar 26
Round 5 – Thu Mar 29
Championship – Mon Apr 2
