After many polls, many votes, and us chasing down many photos, we have reached the week of the regional finals in our first brewery patio bracket-style tournament. As we have done for each round, we start with the breweries in the southern part of New Mexico.
Back in the first round, Cloudcroft Brewing and 575 Brewing ran away with the Southeast and Southwest regions, so we granted them byes to their respective regional finals. For the second round, it was time to decide between the next three highest vote totals as to which brewery would advance to face them in those finals.
Well, in the end, the same patios that came in second place in the first round ended up winning the right to advance out of the second round. There were no surprises here, except perhaps in just how big of a margin one of them won by this time.
Southeast: 1. Sierra Blanca Brewery 69 votes, 2. Lost Hiker Brewing 45,
