The Battle of the Breweries (2024): Conferences and Participants

The Battle of the Breweries

The Battle of the Breweries (2024)

The list below is the four conferences – Bravo, Crystal, Fuggle, and Galaxy, and the 31 (+4 possible breweries for the 32nd seed) participants. This is their seeding as per Untappd ratings. We rolled D4’s all day to determine which conferences the breweries would end up in, then we used their Untappd global average rating to set up the seeding. In the case of ties (example – two breweries with a 3.66 Untappd rating) we rolled off to determine their order of ranking.

The 32nd seed for each conference is being determined right now by the winner of the Preliminary Qualifier round, which ends tomorrow (Thursday, February 29th) at 11:59:59 PM EST. You can vote here: The Battle of the Breweries (2024): Preliminary Qualifiers.

To see our original list of brewery participants you can view that here: The Battle of the Breweries (2024) Participating Breweries.

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
