From Mike at Brew Bracket:

Brew Bracket 5: AMBERgeddon
Brew Bracket, the only beer tasting event in the US to offer two tasting glasses, IS BACK! The tournament tasting event features 16 unique Amber style beers from local Indiana breweries. Previous event winners including RAM, Barley Island, Bier, and Rock Bottom will be returning with their take on the Amber style, as well as newer breweries to the Indiana beer scene like Bulldog Brewery and Iechyd Da Brewing Company. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Keep Indianapolis Beautiful.

About Brew Bracket:
Your ticket puts you in the judging seat. Over the afternoon, you will visit stations to blindly taste two beers at a time, voting for your favorite between the two. In total there will be 15 different stations making up the bracket. The majority vote of the crowd (400 participants) will advance one brewer through the tournament as the Brew Bracket champion.

At the end of the event we'll present the results and reveal all the locations of the participating breweries. For more information, see the about us on our site http://www.brewbracket.com/about/
