TapRm March Madness: Beer Edition

It’s officially March and if you’re a basketball fan, that means it’s time for the buzzer beating, half court shooting, upset alerting March Madness. For those of you who are unfamiliar, March Madness is the ultimate tournament to crown the NCAA basketball champion for the year. After last year’s tournament was abruptly cancelled due to COVID-19, the return of the championship is especially nostalgic and comforting. 

Whether you’re tuning in for every matchup or avoiding sports fans for the month, we’ve created our own spin on the tournament breaking down your favorite beers to choose one true champion in the first ever TapRm March Madness: Beer Edition! 

Below you’ll find four regions that represent each style: IPA’s & Pale Ales, Stouts & Porters,  Sours & Fruit Ales, Pilsners & Lagers. Within each region are six contenders that will go head to head each week on our Instagram stories. Make sure to vote on your favorite beer in each category to ensure they make it to the next round and hopefully be named the ultimate winner of the tournament!
