The Vermont Brew Bracket: Cast Your Votes 

It's that time of year when just about everything gets tossed into a bracket. Here at Seven Days, we can't resist a good trend, so we thought we'd jump in with a subject near and dear to all of our hearts — local beer.

Our distinguished selection committee — staff writers Andy Bromage and Paul Heintz, food writer Corin Hirsch, and yours truly, deputy web editor Tyler Machado — put our heads together and came up with a list of 32 Vermont beers, including choices from the biggest breweries and the tiniest brewpubs. (We threw Woodchuck Amber Cider in there, too, just for you gluten-free types.)

Following in the footsteps of another big tournament that happens this time of year, we loosely ranked the beers and arbitrarily assigned them brackets named after varities of hops: Cascade, Nugget, Centennial and Simcoe.

Now, here's where you come in. Each of the beers is paired up in a head-to-head matchup, and the winner will be determined by you. We'll keep moving through the bracket, down to the "Final Pour" and on to the championship round. We'll start with first-round voting in the Cascade and Nugget regions today, followed by the Centennial and Simcoe regions tomorrow. Voting in the next round will be open all weekend.
