To say there has been a bit of enthusiasm for our brewery patio bracket-style tournament in Northern New Mexico would be a colossal understatement. There were 1,043 votes cast in the Northwest Region in the second round, and 773 in the Northeast. Those were by far the largest voting totals of any geographic region. Heck, even the ABQ Metro Breweries, which we had to package in with these, received 613 votes, the fourth highest total.
So what did all those votes produce? Well, the Northeast ultimately mirrored the first round, but the Northwest saw a different patio come in second, and the top two in the Metro swapped places from the first round. Here are how the final voting totals looked, with the top two in each group advancing to the regional finals.
Northwest: 1. Lauter Haus 381 votes, 2. Bathtub
