Sudsy Showdown: Beer Madness

With the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament in full swing, March Madness brackets have already been submitted and many have already been upset (thanks a lot, Morehead State). But, that doesn’t mean your picking and choosing duties are over. Beer bracket competitions abound!

If the Richmond Spyders’ win ruined your sweet sixteen choices, never fear; your bracket fun isn’t over.

Pop over to BrewBound.com to vote for your favorite beer as part of their Brew Madness 2011 challenge. (Obviously, we’d love to see Prima Pils make the next round). Then, quickly click your way to The Washington Post’s Beer Madness, and select Victory. Tilted Smile is somehow beating us — if that’s not Beer Madness, we don’t know what is!

The real madness is that craft brewers are being pitted against one another like NCAA rivals. Unlike Duke and UNC, craft brewers look for opportunities to collaborate, not dominate. That said, we’d still love to score a Victory in a few bracket rounds.

How do you decide who to pick in your brackets? Are you motivated by home town pride? Is it your true love of the product and its virtues that encourage your vote?

That same year (1985), Bill gave Ron a home brewing kit as a Christmas gift. With that, both Bill and Ron developed their love of the craft…
