How it works

With the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments currently underway, we’re joining the fun of bracket competitions with a face-off of our own.

Last year, y’all helped us name Malone’s the Best Classic Restaurant. This year, we asked you to share your favorite brewery in Lexington. Now — thanks to you and the help of a random generator we have the official lineup for our bracket.

We will host several voting rounds within our newsletters and social channels to determine City’s best brewery. Who moves on is up to you. Vote for your favorites, and the brewery with more votes moves on. Simple as that. We’ll go until we have a champion, which will be announced in our Friday, March 31 newsletter. You will be able to vote once per round.

Selection round

Vote for the brewery you’d like to see advance to round two using this poll. You can vote for all four spots or as little as one. Once we count all the votes, we’ll share an updated bracket and new poll in an upcoming newsletter.
