One beer remains.
Sixty-four Iowa-crafted beers entered the third year of the Des Moines Register's Beer Brackets, sponsored by the Iowa Taproom, on March 1 and on Wednesday a sole brew stands victorious: Bridge Road from Polk City's Fenders Brewing.
The beer defeated West O Beer's Pilsner in the finals of the six-round contest by earning roughly 54 percent of the final vote.
A newcomer to the Iowa beer scene, the brown ale described as "slight nutty sweetness and supportive hop bitterness" first debuted last summer at the Four Seasons festival in Polk City, said brewery representative Jason Madison.
"Bridge Road is named after the well worn avenue into Polk City via the Mile Long Bridge over Saylorville Lake," Madison said.
The beer, winning the open voting popularity contest in its first year entered, can be found at the Fenders taproom (212 W Van Dorn St., Polk City). Additional Fenders beers can be found on occasion at the Iowa Taproom. Find more information at Facebook.com/FendersBrewing.
