March Madness! 2013 Beer Friends Final 4

Beerfriend Paul

It’s that time of year again! It’s Monday after the first two rounds of March Madness and, unless you were a personal friend of Andy Enfield, your bracket is probably busted. So, since you didn’t have Florida Gulf Coast University beating Georgetown it’s time to move on to your next favorite bracket.

It’s time for the Fourth Annual Beer Friends Final 4!

This year we get our field of 64 from the depths of Beer Friends history.  We’ve gone back and selected some of our favorite beers that we have reviewed so that you can help us finally figure out what the best beer we’ve reviewed is. Though, much like our rating system in each video, this tournament is arbitrary and is just for fun.

We have broken up the field of 64 regionally into East, Midwest, West, and NYC/CA (that’s a region, right?). Today we start the voting in the East bracket.  If you need some help casting your vote you can click on the links to each video for our "expert" opinion.  If you'd like to tell us why one of these beers should win over the other you can tweet us @thebeerfriends, it won't help that beer win any but we'll enjoy it.
