Voting in Round 3 of our Craft Beer battle readers’ bracket is now open, so click here to make your picks, and to see how the Elite Eight bracket has shaped up.

In the judges’ bracket, our sippers are taking a Thanksgiving tasting hiatus, but we’ll be back next week to reveal our Final Four.

Breaking down the results, judges’ picks and readers’ picks nearly fell in perfect sync with each other – with differences of opinion in only two battles.

In Round 2 of the Hops region, both readers and judges advanced Peticolas Velvet Hammer and Lakewood Hop Trapp to battle it out for a spot in the Final Four.

In the Easy Drinking region, readers and judges favored Martin House Day Break over Lakewood Rock Ryder, moving it ahead to face Peticolas Golden Opportunity in Round 3 of the readers’ bracket. (Whereas judges advanced Peticolas’ opponent, Community Public Ale.)

We also lined up in the Dark & Malty region, with Lakewood Temptress and Ugly Pug beating out Martin House’s There Will Be Stout and Four Corners Block Party Porter, respectively.

In the Specialty region, the popular Blood & Honey from Revolver in Granbury continued its march forward, beating out Community’s Trinity Trippel in both the readers’ and judges’ brackets. B&H’s competitor in the readers’ bracket will be Martin House’s River House (judges favored Armadillo Greenbelt Farmhouse in that matchup)

Want to see your favorite remaining beers advance to the Final Four? Vote for them here. Bottoms up!
