Minnesota Brewery Bracket! - Nominations and Beer Talk


The Gnat

Recommended Posts

Thanks to @Heimdallr for saying this in the "Driving up to Minny tomorrow" Thread, but we should do a Minnesota brewery tourney for those of us who are familiar. I realize that this won't have a ton of application to those who don't live in Minnesota, sorry VD, but it's fun to talk about beer, and I love local beer.

 

So I'll compile the list for votes, and then it will be randomly seeded, but the top 32 (right now that's the plan) or 64 if we make it that high, we will go through and do a bracket. Right now, just put in your up to Top 25 nominations:

1. Insight
2. Indeed
3. Headflyer
4. Ovalde Farm and Brewing
5. Fair State
6. Steel Toe
7. East Lake
8. Town Hall Brewery
9. Castle Danger
10. Venn Brewing
11. Wild Mind Ales
12. Canal Park
13. Lift Bridge
14. Pryes
15. Enki
16. Excelsior
17. Bauhaus
18. Bent Brewstillery
19. 612
20. Hammerheart
21. Bad Habit
22. Third Street
23. Modist
24. Bad Weather
25. August Schell

They've likely already been listed, I'm almost embarrassed to admit the only one I've actually been to is Surly.

well, right now we're at 50, which means we'll do a bracket of 32, so those who have the most votes, the better.

You can add Jack Pine and Roadhouse from Brainerd. Both are very good.
