While sports fans will be going crazy over the big basketball tournament, New Jerseyans can help crown ANOTHER champion. Get ready to cheer for the beer!

The field is set and we are ready to kick off our field of 32 of the best craft breweries in NJ! Your votes will help crown who will be the best craft brewery in the Garden State. The field is broken up into 4 regions of the state to start: North, Central, Jersey Shore and South Jersey. Vote for your favorite breweries to send them onto the next round. Round 1 will kick off on Thursday March 15 and go through Sunday March 19. Round 2 voting will begin on Friday March 24.
