The Battle of the Beers – The Round of 8 (Results) (2022)

The Battle of the Beers (2022)

And Then There Was Four

And so we continue on in the treacherous gladiatorial pits of the Battle of the Beers. Broken beer bottles, smashed beer cans, crumpled kegs, dented crowlers, and bottle openers turned shivs lay everywhere. The best of the hops, barley, and malts are being eyed up by our remaining four gladiators.

The dust is beginning to settle, and four victorious beers and breweries have emerged, leaving the crumpled husks of their defeated opponents laying behind them. As we move onto the final four, let’s see who we lost from this past round.

The Defeated

These four competitors put up a hard fight, making it to the round of the Elite Eight, but sadly coming up short and unable to continue on to the Final Four:

  • Rotunda Brewing Company – Annville IPA
  • Tattered Flag – TMI PA
  • Lawson’s Finest Liquids – Sip of Sunshine
  • Rubber Soul Brewing Company – Dropout

The Victorious

So who does that leave us with in the Final Four? These hardened, grizzled, toughened veterans of the beer and brewery gladiator pits:

  • The Alchemist – Heady Topper
  • Toppling Goliath – Pseudo Sue
  • Von C Brewing – Walking on Clouds
  • Troegs Brewing Company – Perpetual IPA

How Did They Get Here

I will be posting the next round of voting shortly (the Round of 4 or the Final Four). I want to say it will be done in the next few minutes, but I am most likely getting called out for quick errands, so it’s looking more like noon. (I was busy spending my 7AM and 8AM squashing Spotted Lanternflies on my hops and roses, or I would have gotten the results page done at 8 and the voting page up at 9.)

But, either way, look for it in the next 2 – 3 hours at the latest.

The remaining schedule of voting for the tournament goes as such:

  • Round of 4July 22nd – July 28th at 11:59PM (EST)
  • Round of 2July 29th – August 4th at 11:59PM (EST)

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!
