    Corks and Kegs March Madness

    Corks and Kegs March Madness starts

    March 1!!!

    What is all the madness about?

    It is a month long beer tournament similar in format to the NCAA basketball tournament. First round match ups are set up by our manager and staff. Match ups after that are determined by you!

    Each evening in March we will have a “game”. Game times will be 5:30 to 7:30.

    During the above time period, you simply taste two unidentified beer samples and put your vote in the ballot box for the one you like the better.

    We will tally up the votes each night and post results and the identity of the beers on Facebook.

    The winner moves on to the next round and the loser gets on the beer bus back to its shelf spot.

    This year’s tournament will have an interesting wrinkle as Belgian style beers will be included in the field. What impact will they have?

    So plan to come in each evening in March, do the blind taste test, vote and then watch for results on FB.
