    A buddy and I (after a few brews of our own) decided to come up with a "beer bracket" to coincide with the NCAA tourney. Feel free to join and vote on the message board:

    Dogfish Head 90 a 10 seed? That beer is Tark's UNLV squad. You figure its so good there has to be something illegal going on.

    We seeded No. 1s first, then started from 16 up and then went back to the 2s and ended up splitting up the 5/6s at the end. Yes, we are drunk...but we hope it's close. A few of the play-in games were hard to decide.

    PS. This is what happens when you crack a beer at 5 pm and by 9 decide...'Yeah, let's do this...'

    It took 4 hours...but it's was fun to argue the seedings. And the samples we had from the "teams" available were fun too.

    Coors Light is a 1 seed!?! You had to be drunk when you made this list.

    Guinness with a 3 seed?! That's worse than the Coors Light 1 seed.

    Man ... this could be an all 15 and 16 seed Final Four. And a second-round matchup between Arrogant Bastard and Dogfish Head 90-Minute? That's like Bird vs. Magic.

    I'd better stop. :D

    There is no freaking way Sunset Wheat is a 16 seed. I couldn't get past the first pairing.

    Play-in game at that!

    Seeded by ubiquity, not quality, no doubt.
