The Battle of the Beers – Round of 4 (2022)

The Battle of the Beers – Round of 4 (2022)

The Battle of the Beers (2022) Continues With the Final Four

It’s the Final (….four)…. Count Down

Its the final four…. count down. Four flagship beers remain. Four breweries who brewed those flagship beers remain. They hail from all parts of… well… the United States, and they have all entered into this gladiator pit (pretty much unwillingly, I kind of just picked them, threw them in there, and you guys voted on them like a bunch of Roman Emperors, determining who survives and who doesn’t). But anyway, these fine gladiators come here to duke it out, and see who goes on to our finals next week.

Yes, that means its the Final Four! And basically the semi finals of the tournament! The four breweries that remain are:

  • The Alchemist (from Stowe, Vermont)
  • Toppling Goliath (from Decorah, Iowa)
  • Von C Brewing (from Norristown, Pennsylvania)
  • Troegs Independent Craft Brewing (from Hershey, Pennsylvania)

The Final Four Competitors

Its interesting to note the final four that we have. The Alchemist and Toppling Goliath are giants in the feed, well known from across the country. Troegs Independent Craft Brewing is a regional staple in the eastern area with a decently large distribution footprint – especially well known in Pennsylvania (its the second largest brewery in the state), and there is the little David in this fight – Von C Brewing out of Norristown, PA. Who have been on a hot streak, as a new brewery, wracking up wins and records all over the place. The biggest – as far as we are concerned here at The Beer Thrillers – is they won this year’s Battle of the Breweries (2022). You can see their win here: And the Winner Is….. (2022).

So this is certainly a heated up final four. Two industry giants and favorites, a brewery that is a regional giant and is celebrating their 25th anniversary, and a brewery just over a year old that keeps winning awards and medals left and right. So who becomes the true winner? We shall see! You guys will decide!

Who Did We Lose?

Who did we lose and that didn’t make it from the Elite Eight to the Final Four? (Because sadly, somebody’s bottle has to be broken.) They were:

  • (14) Rotunda Brewing Company – Annville IPA
  • (23) Tattered Flag – TMI PA
  • (3) Lawson’s Finest Liquids – Sip of Sunshine
  • (11) Rubber Soul Brewing Company – Dropout

Things Are Certainly Heating Up

And I don’t just mean the temperature – which it is that too (it has been a scorcher of a week here in Central PA). But we are down to the Final Four of the tournament, so we have just two rounds left. This week and next week’s finals heads up matchup. Who will walk away top dog / top beer / top whatever? You guys will decide!

Wrap Up

Thank you all for checking out the results and participating in the tournament. This is our first Battle of the Beers tournament, but our third tournament overall (after having done a Battle of the Breweries (2021) and a Battle of the Breweries (2022)). These are a lot of fun to run and manage, and its great to see the participation of the fans and community. So I just want to thank everyone for coming to The Beer Thrillers blog and participating in the tournament. You guys make all this happen and without you there would be no tournaments or The Beer Thrillers in general. So we greatly appreciate all your support and everything.

Lots and Lots and Lots and Lots Going On

There is always lots and lots and lots and lots going on here at The Beer Thrillers. Please check out the site, look at all the different articles by numerous writers (myself – B. Kline, Josh – J. Doncevic, Default Brewing, Karl’s great homebrewing article, Amy’s articles, etc.). With us being halfway through the year, we have a new slew of content that is out, or is coming out shortly (list articles and the such), so be on the lookout for that. Also the layout should soon be getting a change, so that will hopefully make the site look nicer. (Excuse the dust while we work.)

There is always beer reviews, brewery reviews, travelogues, and news so always be checking back to see that. Also look for upcoming podcasts, and even YouTube videos soon. And if you check out our Facebook page, you’ll see that I occasionally do live video game streaming with our friend Drew over at Knights of Nostalgia.
