College basketball is fun –– but beer is better.

Let’s take a tried-and-true format –– maybe call it the Dank 16 –– and adapt it for frosty beverages, shall we?

Our Pittsburgh All-Stars cooler is outrageous (inventory/menu here) and we want to celebrate all the incredible work from local brewers.

We picked 16 local Pittsburgh breweries out of our cooler at random (yes, that means any brewery listed below is available in-store!) and then seeded them based on… a Google random number generator.

Hey, it doesn’t always need to be scientific. They all rule. So let’s just see what happens, eh?

Vote away.

We’ll collect votes until Friday, March 24, and then we’ll narrow down the field for Round 2.

Let’s have some fun.
