Pennings Farm Market in Warwick is kicking off a new seven-week, bracket-style tournament for eight Orange County breweries to be held at their brewpub. Every Friday night starting on March 24 and ending on May 5, two breweries will go head to head, with locals tasting and voting for the better beer. The first four weeks will have the breweries competing bracket style with the fifth and sixth weeks being the semi finals and then the seventh week determining which brewery will be the first to win the Gilded Growler trophy.
