Beer Baron: The Beer Bracket's down to the Sweet 16, too

Tyranena Rocky's Revenge

Tyranena Rocky's Revenge has made the Sweet 16 of the Wisconsin Beer Bracket for the second year in a row. Tyranena is one of three breweries with two beers remaining in the field.

Voters in the Wisconsin Beer Bracket have picked their sweetest beers, escorting three Cinderellas into the field of 16.

Two double-digit seeds were bound to emerge in the wild Yeast region, where No. 11 Tyranena The Devil Made Me Do It defeated No. 14 One Barrel Bilbo Baggins and No. 12 Grumpy Troll Sunflower upended No. 13 Port Huron Amber Alt.

But Hops region No. 13 MobCraft Bat---- Crazy pulled a true upset to gain entry to the Sweet 16, sending No. 5 Potosi Pilsener home. 

Top seeds continued to dominate their matchups, and the results in the Malt and Water regions were entirely chalk. 

The best-performing top seed in the second round was O'so Night Train, which walloped Milwaukee Brewing's Outboard 87.6 percent to 12.4 percent.

Voting in the third round of the Beer Bracket is open through Wednesday night. If you haven't yet joined, you can still get in on the action and, just for playing, have a chance to win great prizes including FREE BEER and a great kayak from Fontana Sports.
