Last year, y’all helped us name the best local hike: Lula Lake. This year, we asked you to share your favorite local brewery in Chattanooga. Now — thanks to you — we have the official lineup for our bracket.
Beginning today, we will host several voting rounds within our newsletters and social channels to determine Chattanooga’s best brewery. Who moves on is up to you. Vote for your favorites, and the brewery with more votes moves on. Simple as that. We’ll go until we have a champion, which will be announced in our Friday, March 31 newsletter. You will be able to vote once per round.
How to participate
Vote for the brewery you’d like to see advance to round two using our poll. You can vote for all four spots or as little as one. Once we count all the votes, we’ll share an updated bracket and new poll in an upcoming newsletter.
