Vote Early, Drink Local

There’s nothing better than beer and basketball, except perhaps basketball and beer. To celebrate both, The Indy’s Brew Bracket pit eight breweries in the 805 and their heady best in a March Madness competition that started on the 10th. Now in Round Three, the field is down to two, each from Ventura’s 8-month-old Topa Topa brewery — Chief Peak IPA and Weekend Session IPA — and the comparatively venerable Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. — Hoppy Poppy IPA and Lizard’s Mouth IIPA. Voting ends April 4, so get on over to and add some beverage leverage.
