The Charlotte Magazine comes up with a Beer Bracket annually. The magazine matches 32 local breweries in a mad competition to find out the ultimate champion of the beer. There were breweries from the Beer Bracket list, and here are the results.
The first position went to the Overachiever of Wooden Robot Brewery. It is a popular imperial IPA, and it is a hazy, heavy-hitting, New England-style IPA into a more approachable, “obsessively drinkable” pale ale. NoDa Brewing Company's Hop Cakes grabbed the second position. It has sweet citrus and hops with the taste of Vermont maple syrup, which is 110 pounds in every batch.
Triple C Brewing Company’s Up All Night Breakfast Porter grabbed the third position in the Beer Bracket. It has German chocolate malts, flaked oats, honey, lactose, and an infusion of coffee from Magnolia Coffee Company.
