Here at Team Chug, we’re big fans of NCAA basketball and March Madness and so we’ve decided to pay homage to it in the only way we now how: BEER CHUG BRACKETS! Except in this tournament, YOU have a say who wins.
We’ve hand-picked 36 of our favorite 6-Second Beer Reviews from the past year and are pitting those beers against each other in a single-elimation tournament to decide the Chug Madness Super Elite Champion. The bracket will consist of 4 regions with 8 beers representing each region. If you know anything about math, that adds up to 32 beers, so why did we pick 36 you ask? Well, because we had problems narrowing it down and there were beers we didn’t want to leave out and to be honest, we just liked the added drama of some play-in games.
The way this will work is, we’ll post each matchup here on the website and also send out a tweet from @VineChug. We will let you, the people, decide what beer should move onto the next round by casting a vote via clicking retweet for one beer, or favorite for the other. If you don’t choose to be an acitive participant in the world of Twitter, then we will also have a poll directly on the matchup post here at TeamChug.com. Either way, this is your chance to let us know what you think of the beers we’ve been reviewing and which ones you think we’ve been wrong on.
Below you will find the play-in games that will guarantee each victorious beer entry into the 2014 Chug Madness Bracket. Stay tuned all through the week to vote on the 4 play-in matchups and for the grand revealing of the full 32-beer bracket. Let’s do this.
