Virgina vs North Carolina Championship

Thank you for voting in this year's contest! The contest ends at 9:00 am EST on Wednesday, August 3. Stay tuned online at and the October print issue of Blue Ridge Outdoors for our announcement and spotlight of the winner!

North Carolina and Virginia. Not only do these two states have the greatest number of craft breweries in Blue Ridge Outdoors' 10 state footprint, but they are also home base to our two offices (coincidence?) This year, our NC and VA staff have selected 32 of our favorite breweries from each state to go head to head (with minimum foam) to battle it out to see who rises to the top in 2016. At the climactic end of this bracket, will it be The Old North State or Old Dominion who possesses the winning brewery in this year's challenge?

Vote once every 24 hours for your favorites! And spread the word!
