384 BREWERIES VYING FOR the REGIONAL ROUND OF 32.
In the NFL Draft, 250+ players are selected over 7 rounds. For Craft Brew Bowl, 384 breweries (12 breweries x 32 CBZ) compete in the Draught Draft against others in the same region to see who will represent their NFL team. To qualify for the Draft, breweries must first advance from the CHEER YOUR BEER round, a preliminary round in which the fans have their say in who will compete for the title.
For the Draught Draft, all beers are tasted blind and scored by a panel of Cicerones, Master Sommeliers and beverage professionals.
Five highest-scoring beers from each Craft Brew Zone will be re-tasted in a final “2-minute drill” to determine the winners and runners-up.
