Local beer (Maryland) wins the madness

Hook and Ladder at Classic City Brewfest, April 2008 Congratulations are in order for Silver Spring Maryland's brewery Hook and Ladder.

The brewery's Backdraft Brown has won the top spot in this year's Washington Post Beer Madness, a judging of 32 beers from around the US (but commecially available in bottles in the D.C. area). In fact Backdraft Brown won against another local beer, The Raven Lager, from the Baltimore-Washington Beer Works.

The contest was organized to mimic, in a way, the NCAA college basketball championships, colloquially known as March Madness.

A percentage of proceeds from the sale of all Hook and Ladder beers goes to burn victim charities.
