Announcing our 68 March Madness breweries and beers!

(Original here)
To celebrate March Madness for 2012 we paired up breweries with the 68 teams selected for the NCAA men's basketball tournament.  To make it more "simple" we tried to grab the brewery that was geographically closest to the respective university or college. In some cases that really wasn't possible so we did the best we could. Then we selected a beer from that brewery's line up, we tried to keep some diversity, but sometimes our beer biases won out. I'm sure we forgot some big ones and there may be grievances so let us know in the comments. 

The selected brews success is shackled to their associated teams. We were originally going to do voting but time was factor so as stated above. we tried to keep it simple. Once the set 64 are decided we will through up the brackets. You can expect that tomorrow evening.
