You guys turned my favorite brewery into 2018 Virginia...

Only a couple days ago, we unveiled the 2020 TNIAAM Beer Bracket, starting with the play-in games and nd then first round matchups took place on Monday. Now, we move onto the round of 32.

In the West Region... you guys killed me. A very weird and late voting surge on just the 1 vs. 16 matchup wound up scoring an upset for Wayfinder over top-seeded Highland Park (one of my favorite breweries). Somehow, that was the only upset in this region. This makes no sense. You turned one of my favorite breweries into Virginia. Enjoy your UMBC, I guess.

Again in this round, we won’t be going in-depth on each matchup description (we can in the Sweet 16). But you can check out the links provided for each if you’d like to research further. Or you can talk to everyone else in the comments before making your selections.
