32 WINNING BREWERIES FROM THE DRAUGHT DRAFT FACE-OFF.

Breweries are seeded based on DRAUGHT DRAFT scores.
A coin toss determines Home and Away.
Home team gets choice of hosting the round or deferring to the other brewery.

Each brewery presents 4 beers.
Some breweries—like the football teams themselves—scout their opponents first, while others just send their franchise superstars.

Beers are tasted blind and scored by a cicerone, a sommelier and the attendees.*
The top two beers will then be re-tasted in a final “2-minute drill” to determine the winner.

* Cicerone and sommelier scores are weighted. Attendees/consumer scores used for close-calls and tie-breakers.

Highest-scoring brewerIES advance to the WILD-CARD ROUND OF 16.
