Calling all beer lovers

The Washington Post’s seventh annual Beer Madness is fast appproaching, and you know what that means: We’re in need of a few tasters.

This year, the bracketed taste-off will feature 32 all-American craft brews. Neighborhood Restaurant Group beer director Greg Engert will help and host once again, and our tasting panel will include experts and readers.

So take your best shot, and do it promptly. Send an e-mail to with BEER MADNESS in the subject line. To be considered for one of the four reader-designated slots, you must be able to attend tasting sessions on two evenings during the week of March 4 (at ChurchKey in Logan Circle). Other requirements:

■ Describe your qualifications and your passion for beer in a single, tightly constructed sentence. Humor is appreciated.

■List your three favorite domestic craft beers.

The deadline for submitting your panel bid is Wednesday, Feb. 27.
