Beers, Football, and Fairs Included in Final 8 of PA Chamber’s Inaugural “Best of Fall” Contest

Rounds 3 and 4 of Public Voting to Begin on Tuesday, Oct. 17


The PA Chamber’s inaugural “Best of Fall” competition – a bracket-style voting contest on the PA Chamber’s X and Instagram pages – has entered its third week, and Pennsylvania voters have narrowed down their favorite autumnal brands, treats, and experiences down to the Final Eight contestants.


“Pennsylvania has so many treasured fall traditions – and these eight remaining contestants showcase why the commonwealth masters this season like nowhere else,” PA Chamber President and CEO Luke Bernstein said. “Yuengling is a household name here in the Keystone State, and you can barely enter a home without finding a Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkin or a Steelers game on TV. Add that to the incredible fairs, festivals, and other experiences in our Final Eight and it’s easy to see why Pennsylvania truly offers the ‘Best of Fall.’ We can’t wait to see how this matchup plays out as voters get to determine which contestants make it to the championship round.”


Rounds 3 and 4, which both have two days of voting on the PA Chamber’s X and Instagram pages, will be held this week. Round 3 voting begins at Noon on Tuesday, October 17; and Round 4 will begin at Noon on Thursday, October 19.


The remainder of the voting schedule is as follows:


Third round: 10/17-10/18

Fourth round: 10/19-10/20

Championship: 10/23


The Final Eight nominees include:


Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins
Musselman’s Apple Cider
Tröegs Master of Pumpkins Ale
Yuengling Oktoberfest
