The Battle of the Breweries (2023) – Walhalla Convention: Group Stage


The Battle of the Breweries (2023)

The Battle of the Breweries – 2023

Its now time to begin the match off! At present is the primary day of voting (February twenty seventh, 2023). Every week of voting (till the finals) lasts one week, and can go from the Monday that voting begins, till the subsequent Sunday at 11:59:59 PM. So this week’s spherical of voting – the Convention Group Stage – will final till Sunday March fifth, 2023 11:59:59 PM EST.

You may learn the overview articles right here:

The overall gist:

The group spherical would be the similar construction because the World Cup’s – the highest two “groups” (ie. breweries) with probably the most factors (ie. most votes) transfer on to the match. The large distinction is that every group will probably be 5 breweries as an alternative of the 4 groups within the World Cup.

The match construction is fairly straight ahead. 4 conferences of 16 breweries. The teams will probably be saved for the conferences, so every convention can have 8 teams which can be locked in for that convention. After the group spherical ends, and the breweries advance, I’ll seed them based mostly on their Untappd scores. (So a 4.04 Untappd ranking will probably end in a 1 Seed, whereas a 3.31 Untappd ranking will probably end in a 16 seed.)

The match then runs linear much like NCAA’s March Insanity and different comparable bracket tournaments. 16 vs. 1, 15 vs. 2, 14 vs. 3, 13 vs. 4, and so on. The winner of every convention will then face off in a deadly 4 – option to decide the true champion of The Beer Thrillers’ Battle of the Breweries (2023).
