It's time to vote for your favorite Recon Brewing beer! With the help of our mug club members, we developed a 50 beer bracket to determine the 2020 champion. Last year, our NEIPA, Juice Head Baby, took the crown. In 2018, our amber lager, 14 Leatherheads edged out our flagship IPA, BRC, for the win. Will Juice Head Baby go back-to-back or will we have a new winner in 2020? Only you can decide! 


We're always looking for ways to make everything we do better. This year, we're going to have a fun contest that doubles as an additional fundraiser for our Karma Tap. Our Karma Tap is the NIC-Brew, a berry milkshake IPA, and it benefits the NICU through the Magee-Womens' Research Institution and Foundation. With a $5 donation to the Karma Tap, you will be entered into our Mission Madness contest. You'll receive a paper copy of the bracket to complete and turn in. We suggest taking a photo of your bracket so you can play along and help your favorite brews to victory on Facebook throughout the contest. Only one entry per person permitted.

The person with the winning bracket will have the opportunity to claim a Single Mug Club Membership for the upcoming 2020-21 year (starts in June) or a ceramic growler (includes first fill). 

In the event of a tie, the winning brackets will be put into a random generator to determine the winner live.
