Beer Madness 2011 Champion

Posted on | April 5, 2011 | No Comments

Well March Madness is over and that means a new NCAA Basketball champion has been crowned.

In a far more important turn of events, it also means that the inaugural PubGuys Beer Madness Bracket has also concluded. We discussed the Final Four back on the 30th of March and the upsets that occurred to create that crazy final set up. And now, it’s time to submit to you the 2011 PubGuys Beer Madness Champion.

 

Without further ado, our 2011 Beer of the Year is:

Grand Teton Brewing Co.

Bitch Creek ESB

Bitch Creek ESB by Grand Teton Brewing Company

 

From the Grand Teton Brewing Company:

Bitch Creek perfectly balances big malt sweetness and robust hop flavor for a full bodied, satisfying mahogany ale. Like the stream for which it is named, our Bitch Creek ESB is full of character… not for the timid.
