The Battle of the Breweries (2022) – Conference Finals Results

The Battle of the Breweries (2022) – Bigger, Bolder, Badder

Conference Finals

Things certainly heated up in the conference finals! In fact thats an understatement really! We are now down to our final four breweries (competitors) who will face off in a fatal four – way for the tournament final! Unlike past rounds where I did a results post for each conference, but with this round just being one match for each I feel it would be better to consolidate into one post.

Firstly, I want to say congratulations to all eight of the breweries that even made it this far. As I discussed in the rules and opening article – March Madness (2022): Bigger, Bolder, Badder – this year’s tournament included 128 breweries! Thats a lot of breweries! So to even reach the final eight of this tournament is a big accomplishment for all of the breweries involved.

And all eight of these breweries are slinging some excellent brews and pure fire for everyone to drink. So if you are looking for a list of breweries I’d recommend – all eight of these breweries would certainly make that list. You can’t go wrong with any of them.

The final eight includes:

  • Axemann Brewery
  • 1787 Brewing Company
  • Human Robot
  • Von C Brewing
  • Troegs Independent Craft Brewing
  • Gearhouse Brewing
  • Rough Edges Brewing
  • Bunnyman Brewing


Ok, lets get to the results and see who moves on to the final four death match to determine who is truly the best brewery of this tournament! So we now have the final four of this tournament of arbitrarily picked breweries (breweries that I – B. Kline – The Beer Thrillers – have visited), but none of these breweries are arbitrary! They all battled hard to get here, so let’s see who did it and how!

Brock Lesnar Conference

  • (24) Axemann Brewery (256 votes) defeated (25) 1787 Brewing Company (50 votes)

Roman Reigns Conference

  • (19) Von C Brewing (332 votes) defeated (4) Human Robot (29 votes)

Ronda Rousey Conference

  • (24) Gearhouse Brewing (151 votes) defeated (20) Troegs Independent Craft Brewing (47 votes)

Charlotte Flair Conference

  • (23) Bunnyman Brewing (2,631 votes) defeated (5) Rough Edges Brewing (2,479 votes)

Factoids and Notes

That had to be the most insane round of voting in the extensive (…two year) history of this tournament. The Charlotte Flair conference has resulted in the site hitting its bandwidth and over running its capacity three times, blowing up my phone and e-mail with alerts as I scrambled to the host to get it all fixed to get it back up. What an outpouring of voting! Its a shame the two couldn’t reach and compete in the finals, but both Bunnyman Brewing and Rough Edges Brewing definitely showed up and voted! I’m sure both will do amazing in next year’s tournament!

  • Ironically, Von C Brewing will be the lowest seed in the final four-way with their 19 seed. The other breweries will be a 24 (Axemann Brewery), a 24 (Gearhouse Brewing), and a 23 (Bunnyman Brewing).
  • Outside of the finals of last year’s tournament, this is the most votes any two breweries have received. (In the final triple threat of last year’s tournament – Isle of Que brewing received 3,744 votes, runner up Rubber Soul Brewing Company received 3,353, and third place Troegs Independent Craft Brewing received 90 votes.) (For more information: And the Winner of the Battle of the Breweries 2021 Is…..)
  • With the elimination of Troegs Independent Craft Brewing, there is no longer any competing breweries from last year’s finals Triple Threat.
  • Despite having the most votes of the tournament (thus far, for any round) – Bunnyman Brewing did not have the largest margin of victory. That went to Von C Brewing with 303 votes over Human Robot.
  • Other margins of victory are: Axemann Brewery defeated 1787 Brewing by 206 votes, Gearhouse Brewing defeated Troegs Brewing by 104 votes, and Bunnyman defeated Rough Edges by 152 votes.
  • The locations for the final four are:
    • Axemann Brewery: Bellefonte, PA
    • Von C Brewing: Norristown, PA
    • Gearhouse Brewing: Chambersburg, PA
    • Bunnyman Brewing: Fairfax, VA
  • The combined total of votes this round was: 5,975.
  • Will that be enough votes to win the tournament? Last year’s finals triple threat match had over 7,000 total votes between its three competitors.

Look for more information on the final four coming soon

I will be doing some articles on each of the final four breweries during the week of the voting, so be on the lookout for those articles. Hopefully this will give anyone unfamiliar with the breweries a chance to read and learn about them and hopefully eventually get to visit these great breweries! Last year’s final triple threat had Isle of Que, Troegs Independent Craft Brewing, and Rubber Soul Brewing Company. After their win, the Isle of Que brewers and owners came down to visit and hang out for the day with Rubber Soul Brewing Company, which Josh Doncevic got to sit in with them and hang out and had a blast.

So be on the lookout for more news and articles on the different breweries involved. Perhaps some interviews with the brewers / owners and more.


The voting for this round won’t be any different than past rounds, except you just have a different format (more options) on the voting. Instead of being a heads up match – 1 v 1 – its now a fatal four-way! The finals are Axeman Brewery vs. Von C Brewing vs. Gearhouse Brewing vs. Bunnyman Brewing in a fatal four-way to determine the true champion of The Battle of the Breweries (2022)!

Voting will start up in about a half hour with its own post and article here on the blog (be on the lookout for it momentarily) (around 8AM). The voting will run until April 15th and 11:59:59 EST. Be sure to get out and vote! You can vote once per day. Be sure to share the post on all of the different social media platforms you use – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Discord, Untappd, Google Hangouts, Myspace, LinkTree, Snapchat, WhatsApp, OnlyFans, Chalk Boards, White Boards, Post Office Most Wanted Signs, Public Library Community Bulletin Boards, websites, Twitch, your old GeoCities site, Tumbler, Pintrest, Reddit, whatever and wherever you socialize. Let’s see if we can beat last year’s 7,000 vote total!

(Update: I will post a link here to the voting page as well.)
