Bracketing beer

Maureen Ogle, author of the new book Ambitious Brew: The Story of American Beer, is “bracketing beer” for a book due out next March titled “The Englightened Brackologist: The Final Four of Everything.”

She offers a full explanation of what this means, including why after two days she had to take a break.

She’s down to a Final Two and about to make her decision, but it will be March before it goes public.

Meanwhile, if you need an immediate “Beer Bracket” fix we refer you to’s Battle of the Beers (four tournaments, 2003-2005, the last three won by Dogfish head 90-Minute IPA).
