With Selection Sunday coming up on March 15, March Madness 2020 will soon be in full effect. As more and more colleges are teaming up with local breweries to create school specific brews, this March Madness Ultimate 6er features six beers from universities (and breweries) we’ll likely see playing in the coming weeks.

Did any other team besides the Cleveland Cavaliers or Golden State Warriors even have a chance this year? Is it even possible to ignore the legacy Lebron James has installed on the NBA finals over the past seven years? Can you think of another player who has a more beautiful 3-point shot than Steph Curry?
Whether you are a basketball fan or not, the NBA finals are always an excuse to partake in some beer drinking. Here is a 2017 NBA Finals 6er with beers from Oakland, California and Cleveland, Ohio.
Can you believe it? We blink our eyes and the year is running toward 2017! Football season is right around the corner, yet it seems just days ago we had friends over to watch the Denver Broncos hand the Carolina Panthers a loss in Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium. Pre-season starts this week and the regular season gives us a revenge match between last year’s champion contenders on September 8th. Admittedly a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan – each new year brings a treasure trove of emotions. Unlike Cleveland Browns fans, we tend to believe we are winners all the time and no matter what the odds makers say, we have a chance!
I must admit I’m writing this with slightly less enthusiasm than my 2015 write up celebrating the teams that survived the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. Sadly (at least if you’re a UK fan), my beloved Kentucky Wildcats were …
March Madness is upon us and with that the annual tradition of filling in a tournament bracket.

Last week in the craft brewniverse: Coors is going to focus more on it’s craft brands, Copper Kettle is releasing Le Chapeau for the second year in a row, and the Brewers Association put out a list with the Top 50 breweries in the country. Crack open a cold one while you get yourself up to date with this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.
Oh to be a college basketball fan. To think watching a full season of NCAA hoops earns you any distinction among the various friend, co-worker or family pools that amass during this frantic period. To be reminded that the chances of glory and bragging rights are only occur by happenstance. To be reminded how one games performance means nothing in the next game, and to bemoan only what could have been. That my friends, is what March Madness does to me.
What’s up? What’s up? What’s up? So as we sit as still as possible to avoid agitating our Memorial Day sunburns, let’s take an easy, deep breath, and enjoy some fun little nuggets from the InterNEAT.

With the start of college basketball, we’d like you to share your All-American Allstar Style First Team and Second Team. Meaning two breweries you feel best represent the following styles: Stouts, IPAs, Sours, Non-Sour Barrel Aged, Experimentals (crazy creations).

Regular Season Conference Predictions
With NCAA basketball tipping off officially this weekend, conferences have been shuffled, created and reduced. The biggest winner being the ACC, with the addition of Syracuse, Pitt and soon Louisville, look for plenty of exciting conference …
With the NBA starting last week a lot of people got excited—I wasn’t one of them. It’s not that I don’t like basketball, but of the four major sports, I just don’t get excited for professional basketball. I’m a huge fan of college basketball, so it must be something that is going on with the NBA specifically. Here are a few suggestions I’ve come up with to help improve the league.
