STILLFIRE BREWING has once again added to their roster of awards by clinching the coveted title of the 2024 Taco Mac Craft Beer Bracket Challenge champion with their fan-favorite Blue Bandito Mexican Lager. This victory comes after an intense month-long voting process that engaged Georgia craft beer enthusiasts in selecting their favorite brews.

The Taco Mac Craft Beer Bracket Challenge, which coincided with March Madness, featured 16 top Georgia craft beers vying for the championship. From March 20th to April 8th, patrons had the opportunity to participate by purchasing their preferred beers, earning Brewniversity credits alongthe way.

The competition heated up as beers advanced through rounds, culminating in a thrilling finale between StillFire Brewing’s Blue Bandito Mexican Lager and Creature Comfort’s Automatic Pale Ale. Ultimately, StillFire’s Blue Bandito emerged victorious during the decisive voting period from April 7th-8th, earning the esteemed title of Taco Mac’s champion beer for 2024.

Phil Farrell, Head Brewer at StillFire Brewing, expressed delight and gratitude upon receiving the win: “We are thrilled and honored to be recognized as the winner of the 2024 Taco Mac Craft Beer Bracket Challenge. The support and enthusiasm from the craft beer community has been truly inspiring. This victory is a testament to our team’s dedication to brewing exceptional beers like our Blue Bandito Mexican Lager.”

The Blue Bandito Mexican Lager is distinguished by its crisp and refreshing profile, boasting a toasty Munich malt flavor accentuated by a unique ingredient: blue corn. Craft beer lovers can stop by their local Taco Mac or the StillFire taproom to try a pint for themselves as well as keep an eye out for 4-packs in local package stores across the state.

StillFire Brewing extends heartfelt thanks to Taco Mac, the participating breweries, and the dedicated craft beer enthusiasts who participated in the competition. The brewery remains committed to crafting innovative and flavorful beers for its patrons.
