Vote for Your Favorite Charlotte Craft Beers

The CLT Clash of the Crafts March Madness-style bracket will seek to crown the people’s choice champion of Charlotte’s craft brews.

March may be over, but that doesn’t mean the madness has to come to an end. The good news is there are no busts in our bracket – only genuine, mouthwatering Charlotte-brewed craft beer. Which means whether your tastes are for hard-hitting hoppy IPAs, flavor-filled porters, refreshing lagers or funky foeder-aged sours, everyone leaves a winner when it comes to imbibing in Charlotte’s craft beer scene.

The competition starts with 32 locally-made beers representing 4 beer bracket divisions featuring Hoppy, Malt/Roast, Crisp and Funky/Fruity until only one remains as the CLT Clash of the Crafts Champion.

The tournament tips off April 1 with the Half Growler Round of 32 and the Clash of the Crafts Champion will be announced Wednesday, May 1.
