IBB IPA/PA Bracket Update | The Fabulous Four is Set

The Excellent Eight did not disappoint as the votes were counted at noon yesterday. Toppling Goliath's Fire, Skulls and Money trailed for most of the week but was able to overcome the #1 seed, Barn Town's Sticky Juice, to make the Fab Four.

The award for Fire, Skulls and Money? A match-up for Toppling Goliath supremacy vs. Double Dry-Hopped Pseudo Sue. DDH Sue easily handled another Barn Town beer, Double Hop Skewer, as she rolled one game closer to the Championship.

On the Eastern side of the bracket, Pulpit Rock got their revenge over tourney surprise #16 ReUnion Tank Puncher. Stink Juice suffered the first round upset but Saftig would not be denied a trip to the Fab Four.

Saftig will face off with the #2 seeded Franklin Street Drugstore Cowboy. Drugstore faced its toughest test against #11 seed Rongorongo but inched out victory early Saturday morning. Both beers have had a terrific tournament but one had to move on.

With the Fab Four now set, voting will begin Monday, March 19th. Voting will again be open through Saturday, March 24th at noon central time. We know Toppling Goliath will be in the Championship game. Can Pulpit Rock or Franklin Street pull this out? Only your votes will determine the winner.
