Chug Madness 2014: Hop Monsters Bracket Preview

Region: Hop Monsters
Chugger: Homebrews32
Favorite:Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale is an absolute beast. It’s held a spot as a “Chug of the Month” and definitely has a shot to make it to the finals. Something that might hurt is that even though Stone is very well known, most go for their IPA, and not this higher octane offering.
Upset Special: So round 1 is a close match up between Deviant Dale’s and Raging Bitch, but if Deviant Dale’s pulls out a win, I can see it stirring things up in Chug Madness. Oskar Blues has a lot of avid supporters, so if they come out and play this is gonna go far.
Cinderella: Green Flash West Coast IPA is sitting in the 7-seed (honestly it should be higher), so it’s pinned up against a tough 2-seed to start in Heelch O’Hops. If it pulls a win in round 1, I could see it making the Elite Eight or maybe further, because it’s more well known than most brews in this bracket. If you haven’t had a West Coast IPA then you haven’t had what an IPA is supposed to taste like.
