Grab your seats, place your bets, and get your favorite beer ready for a legendary event. It's time for the inaugural Untappd Derby! We're pitting Untappd's most popular beer styles from the last 30 days against each other in a head-to-head race. Between now and May 1st, 2021, place your bets by checking in a participating style. Want to learn more about the participants? Continue reading or check out the landing page here.

This year's Untappd Derby sponsor is Hidden Springs Ale Works, a craft brewery based in Tampa, Florida. Although Hidden Springs has many notable beers, this derby is celebrating March of The Damned, their bourbon barrel aged imperial stout with churros and vanilla, which boasts a 4.5 rating on Untappd. This year's release, previously available on Oznr, was aged in Four Roses barrels -- no mint, but you'll still get all that bourbon flavor!

And yes, there's a badge! Here's how to earn it: Between April 29 and May 1, 2021, check-in one (1) beer of any of the nine participating beer styles.

May the best beer style win. On your mark... get set... go! And they're off!

BREAKING NEWS: This year's expected winner, Haze for Days (IPA), has been disqualified from this year's Untappd Derby (2021) for juicing. Haze for Days was originally the 2021 favorite for the Untappd Derby! This will surely give the other styles an opportunity to rise to the top! No need to fear, Haze for Days (IPA) isn't going far!
