Vermont Brew Bracket: The Championship Round

Posted By on Fri, Mar 29, 2013 at 10:30 AM

We started with 32 local beers. By Monday, only one will be left standing. We've made it to the championship round in the 2013 Vermont Brew Bracket, presented by Three Penny Taproom.

In one corner we have the Alchemist Heady Topper, the winner of last year's inaugural Vermont Brew Bracket. In the geekier of the two Final Pour matchups, Heady Topper soundly beat its brother in glorious balanced hoppiness, Hill Farmstead Edward, 66 pecent to 34 percent.

In the other corner we have Switchback Ale, which won a Final Pour matchup between two of the state's most popular and widespread beers, defeating Long Trail Ale, 59 percent to 41 percent.

These two brews have met before — in the 2012 Final Pour, where Heady Topper beat Switchback big. But that doesn't necessarily mean Heady Topper is a shoo-in to repeat — we've already seen Long Trail avenge its 2012 Final Pour loss this year, and Switchback got more votes by number than Heady Topper last round. Anything can happen! It's up to you.

Voting for the championship round closes on Monday, April 1, at midnight. Click here to cast your vote for the 2013 Vermont Brew Bracket winner.
