The Washington Post's Food section launches its annual “Beer Madness” competition this week. This year, the competition has doubled to include 64 beers (oh, their livers......). The theme chosen was American craft brews: all 64 breweries represented met the Brewers Association’s definition of a craft brewery (well, by now that includes Yuengling).
Over the next six weeks, the Post will reprint the results of ten tasters voting on their favorite brews through the brackets, arriving at the “sweet 16,” “final 4,” and an ultimate tournament winner.
The initial story (in tomorrow's newspaper) here. Accompanying video will be here (not up as this is typed). More on the panelists here.
