It is 2014 and we are back for the second annual Fantasy Ohio Beer League. We are looking for the top 32 beers made in Ohio for the fantasy beer league. We will have 4 divisions with 5 weeks of head-to-head voting to narrow down the field of 32 beers for a 10 beer playoff. We feature a single elimination playoff to determine the one Ohio beer to rule them all. So what is the point of this? To crown the best beer in Ohio? No, beauty is in the tongue of the beholder. We want to have fun and find all those little beers hidden out there in Ohio and create the ultimate taste list for everyone to travel down. Currently our form only has 7 slots for beers but you can nominate and complete the form as many times as you like. Then at the end of August we will announce the top 32 beers in the league and begin voting in September and to the lucky brewer/brewery of this beer will be the honor of winning and our trophy The Yanni. This is a for the people by the people beer vote, so vote often. The few rules we have are below the form.

With the great local growth of beer we are getting the attention of some great brands out of the state. And SweetWater Brewing Co fits that bill.
