With the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments underway, we’re joining the fun of bracket competitions with a face-off of our own.
Last year, y’all helped us name the best food truck: Spicy Boys Fried Chicken. This year, we asked you to share your favorite brewery in Austin. Now — thanks to you + the help of a random generator — we have the official lineup for our bracket.
Who’s in the running
Going head-to-head in the first round are:
- Lazarus Brewing Co. and Oddwood Brewing
- Pinthouse Brewing and Jester King Brewery
- Meanwhile Brewing and Hold Out Brewing
- Austin Beerworks and Celis Brewery
How it works
Beginning today, we will host several voting rounds within our newsletters and social channels to determine Austin’s best breweries. Who moves on is up to you. Vote for your favorites, and the brewery with more votes moves on. Simple as that.
We’ll go until we have a champion, which will be announced in our Friday, March 31 newsletter. You will be able to vote once per round.
How to participate
Vote for the brewery you’d like to see advance to round two using this poll. You can vote for all four spots or as few as one. Once we count all the votes, we’ll share an updated bracket and new poll in an upcoming newsletter.
