Readers’ Choice Chicago Brewery Bracket
The first four rounds saw over 250,000 votes across the four regions, with some notable upsets across the board. And just as a reminder on numbers: North, South, West and Suburbs were seeded 1–16, and not-so-scientifically-based on production, reputation, years of operation, and recent growth. The last two years have seen champions come from some of the least expected breweries; will this year produce another Cinderella story or will one of the top seeds finally raise a banner in our friendly–yet competitive–Readers’ Choice competition?
