The final round of 16 Michigan breweries for the upcoming March Draftness have been confirmed!

The March Madness bracket for Michigan breweries will be returning to Better on Draft’s Facebook page in 2023 – #MarchDraftness2023.

We at Better on Draft believe that our bracket is more unique than other brewery-related March Madness Brackets. We have reached out to hundreds of breweries throughout Michigan and received each brewery’s approval to participate. These breweries are added to the bracket on a first come first serve basis to create a field of 64. The brewery that wins is to host a keg party thrown by and paid for by us. With this type of buy in, we don’t want to assume that any and all breweries are good to complete the end of the deal.

All 64 breweries are locked into place and awaiting match ups! Match ups will be determined by two factors this year – location/region and number of Facebook followers – at a later date, so stay tuned to our Facebook page for more information!

Check out the first, second, and third rounds of breweries here!

Ed Norton

Edwin "Ed" Norton was first introduced to craft beer when his designated fraternity Big Brother Vince asked him if he knew anything about the topic. Ed admitted his ignorance and the rest is history as Ed and Vince would split six-packs of craft beers each week during Ed's probationary status. Ed is now a craft beer enthusiast who is always on the lookout for a beer he has not tried when bottle shopping or drinking at breweries and bars. In addition to drinking beer, this livelong Michigan resident enjoys a bunch of hobbies that he doubts you really care about, other than drinking beer and sounding off about it.
