Voting Opens in Annual Brewbracket

Democracy in Action

All the breweries are top notch… but there can only be one winner. Votes are tallied on the website; popular vote determines who advances each round.

Blue Earl could be the brewery to beat after winning the 2016 & 2017 Brewbracket (pictured above). The 2019 and 2018 winner Bellefonte Brewing Company will also be a serious challenger in 2021. Previous winners also included Mispillion River, who was crowned champion in 2015, and 3rd Wave, who claimed the inaugural title back in 2014.

Note: Breweries are subject to change, and we can’t guarantee all brewers featured in the contest will be at the fest.
