The last of the regional finals are upon us in our brewery patio bracket-style tournament. We finish as we did in the first two rounds with the breweries of Albuquerque, divided into four regions by the two interstate highways.
It was a second round that was both predictable and not, depending on the region. The top two in the Northeast and Southeast from the first round stayed put in those spots in the second, but the Northwest saw its second-place patio change. Then there was the Southwest, where the biggest brewery in town went from leading the first round to coming in fourth. Yeah, we were quite surprised at that one.
Here were the final second-round standings, with the top two finishers in each bracket advancing to the regional finals.
Northwest: 1. Steel Bender 218 votes, 2. Red Door 161, 3. Box
