stlhopswikiI can’t believe what we’re seeing. This will be the first time in two years where the Schlafly AIPA will not be in the STL Hops St. Louis Beer Challenge finals. I’d call 2nd Shift Art of Neurosis beating AIPA an upset, but AoN was in the finals last year as well. But it’s still kind of crazy.

Perennial Abraxas does what it continues to do best and provided a loss to a very difficult competitor in the Civil Life American Brown. 2nd Shift Katy continued its winning ways in the Belgian-style bracket by taking down 4 Hands Pyrus. And Schlafly keeps a dog in the fight with the Schlafly Pumpkin taking out the Schlafly Kolsch in the wild card bracket.

So, our final four will be Perennial Abraxas taking on 2nd Shift Art of Neurosis and Schlafly Pumpkin taking on 2nd Shift Katy. Who will be in the finals? I honestly don’t know, these are some very strong and very delicious competitors. You will decide, so vote now!
