Thanks For Reading

Thank you all so very much for reading. The competition is heating up, and its looking like everyone is having lots of fun voting. Thank you so much for sharing, liking, commenting, and following the page. It really means a lot to us. Always be sure to share and bookmark the voting pages to help out your favorite breweries.

This tournament is a lot of work but one of my favorite things to do each year. I love to see the friendly competition between breweries and drinkers / fans of the breweries. Fun to see which breweries share and follow along and its great the competitive but friendly nature that evolves from this competition.

If you see any errors or find any technical glitches, please let me know. WordPress has been a bit buggy, and Facebook has also been doing some weird mobile linking issues, so I’m trying to get all of that hammered out and fixed. Let me know if you see anything.

Thank you all very much for reading and voting.

Cheers All!
