March Madness Blind IPA Challenge: THE FINAL FOUR

Welcome to March Madness, IPA style!

Each year, the teams at our sister pubs, beergarden and Tap and Growler take on each other to find the best IPA around.

With the current always changing in the tides of preferred IPA styles, this year we have modified the structure of this event to allow the styles to compete first with themselves and then against each other.

Your vote decides the fate of IPA .

This 3 week event features blind flights of four, comprising the Sweet 16 IPAs with four corners of the bracket containing 4 of the most hype and delicious styles of IPA.This year we will feature: Tropical, Hazy, Brut and West Coast. Cast your vote for the tastiest brews in a blind taste off from March 19-March 31!

This is not a one stop shop! You will need to visit both beergarden and Tap & Growler to vote for all four corners of the Sweet 16. You know what is included but you DO NOT KNOW which is which.

The Final 4 will take place at PublicHouse April 1-April 8. The favorite IPA from each category will move on to the final 4, and the voting will continue until we have a winner.
