Beer Madness, Round One: Macros Out!

As predicted, the structure of this year’s Beer Madness tournament enabled the superior beers to avoid upsets in the first round. In particular, all the macro-brews and crappy beers (Natty Bo, Michelob, Schlitz, Miller Chill) were eliminated since they were matched up against beers of similar “style,” but superior flavor.
Sadly, my winner from last year, Ellie’s Brown Ale fell to Abita Turbodog. Also surprising was last year’s official runner-up, Saranac Pale Ale lost in the first round to Harpoon IPA. Still, 16 worthy beers have advanced, and I’m looking forward to drinking the Final Four. I may have to do the Elite Eight though, this is making me thirsty!
