An exciting round of voting yesterday to get us to the round of 16. Brooklyn and Sixpoint were the big winners in the first round, both coming through with three wins. The biggest upset was Troegs Hop Back Amber Ale over the Harpoon Celtic Ale. Not so big but still significant was Sixpoint Sweet Action also over the slightly favored Magic Hat Vinyl, and the West came out strong and sent New Belgium Fat Tire on to the next round. Ithaca Flower Power surged late but ultimately it was not enough to beat the lower seeded, but nationally popular Sierra Nevada Torpedo.
Now, on to the second round.
