2016: Yards vs Tröegs
Both Yards and Tröegs won their first round #OdessaBrewbracket '16 contests by large margins with well over 100 votes for each. It seems a shame to pit these two against each other in the second round but the talent is strong in this year's brewbracket. Beyond the brewbracket, there's well over 65 breweries, wineries and distilleries at this year's event.
Tröegs Brewery, founded in 1996 by brothers John and Chris Trogner, set up a state-of-the-art brewery in Hershey, Pa. in 2010.
From a garage in Manayunk, to Roxborough, then Kensington and finally to Northern Liberties, this is the story of Yards, Philadelphia’s hometown brewery since 1994.
