Why is dropdown value not being passed in ASP classic?

I am trying to pass along the value from the newbrand dropdown to the next page (addbrand.asp), however, it is not working, and will just be blank. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to fix this?
                    <form class="form" method="post">
                    <%i = 0%>
                    <% for each brand in Brands %>
                    <td><input type="button" class="btn btn-small" value="Delete" onclick="document.location='deletebrand.asp?brand=<%=brands(i)%>&client=<%=clientcno%>&id=<%=clientid%>'"></td></tr>
                    <%i = i + 1%>
                    <% next %>
                    <tr><td colspan=2><hr></td></tr>
                    <select name="newbrand">
                    <option value=""></option>
                    <% for each brand in newbrands %>
                    <option value="<%=brand%>"><%=brand%></option>
                    <% next %>
                    If Request.Form("newbrand") <> "" then
                    newbrand = Request.Form("newbrand")
                    End If
                    <input type="button" class="btn btn-small" value="Add" onclick="document.location='addbrand.asp?brand=<%=newbrand%>&client=<%=clientcno%>&id=<%=clientid%>'");">

you can check what's the HTML output (HTML source code) generated and see if the brand's value is embedded in HTML?

also a quick try... try change:
If Request.Form("newbrand") <> "" then
                    newbrand = Request.Form("newbrand")
                    End If
