Blue Earl Brewing Company was established in 2014 (one of the youngest on this bracket). Founded by Ronnie “Blue” Earl Price, Blue Earl features 12 different styles of beer from around the world. Blue Earl is the brewery to beat this year as they have won both the 2016 and 2017 Brewbracket Championship.
Tröegs is a collaboration between two brothers, with a whimsical beer menu that matches the company's spirit of creativity and ingenuity, located in Hershey, PA. Choose from drinks like the Tröegenator, a Double Bock craft beer that's thick with caramel, chocolate and stone fruit flavor. It's an unusual combo that will surprise your taste buds in a decadent, crisp finish.
