Based on the first three rounds of our brewery patio bracket-style tournament, it seemed there was a good chance the winners of the Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, and Southeast regions would end up as the final four of our 92-patio competition.
Well, the votes have been tallied from our first championship round, which took all 12 regional winners and pitted them against one another at last. The result? Almost a clean sweep by those four regions, with just one interloper from the Albuquerque area spoiling the party and denying an all-small-town showdown for bragging rights.
With more than 1,400 votes cast, here were the final results as we whittled down the dandy dozen to a fatal four. (We would keep using final four, but we fear the money-starved NCAA might find out and sue us.)
