Ooops, forgot about this yesterday. 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 Mattingly’s BrightSide Wittaking down Schlafly’s No. 15 in a 50% v. 50% squeaker! Schlafly’s Pumpkin Ale taking down the Schlafly Oktoberfest in a 57% to 43% battle of the Schlafly fall seasonals and Alandale’s IPA taking down Square One’s Rauchbier in a 52% to 48% battle.
But Round 2 has started. Time to get voting! With the exception of Augusta, each brewery still has at least a single beer remaining. This should be a much more interesting and difficult.
