Mispillion and 2SP both make it to the Semifinals! With an impressive voter turnout, both breweries demolished their opponents in the Quarterfinals. 2SP had a soild 95 more votes Troegs, while Mispillion led against Ommegang by 47 votes. Needless to say, fans need to step up their game if they want their favorite brewery to win!
Mispillion River Brewing opened in Milford, Delaware in the 2013. While fairly new to the brewery scene, Mispillion River uses the highest quality barley, hops, water and yeast to produce the finest beers - which they claim "are for all drinkers, from n00bs to nerds, from Hopheads to Stoutfaces". While they only offer 5 year-round brews, Mispillion River compensates with 12 new beers in their Small Batch series. Notably, Mispillion won last year's brewbracket! We can only guess which tasteful treat they'll bring to the Brewfest this year.
2SP Brewing Company describes its signature IPA as containing "punishing hops & therapeutic malts". Helmed by former award-winning Iron Hill brewmeister Bob Barrar, 2SP opened with much fanfare in summer 2015 and has quicky made a name for itself in the local beer scene, already winning two major awards so far this year. If they want to take a third win, their fans will have to start voting for 2SP.
