Starting tomorrow and through April 2, every Friday and Saturday, the three locations of the Kitchen Next Door are hosting the 2016 Beer Madness. This brew-centric version of the popular basketball March Madness works in the same bracket-focused way except with nothing but Colorado beer. Sixteen of Colorado's best breweries, including Avery,  Oskar Blues, Great Divide, and Crazy Mountain, will compete to become the 2016 Beer Madness champ.

There are good news for guests too: All Beer Madness drafts are $3 a pint. The brewery with the most pours at the end of the day will advance.
