Beer Madness reaches its one shining moment

Only two beers are left in our annual Beer Madness competition: Devils Backbone's Vienna Lager and Victory Swing Session Saison both won very close votes to advance to the championship. The winner will be announced in next week's Food section, but in the meantime, we want you to cast your own votes.

Go to Meridian Pint this Thursday and Friday and ask your bartender for free small pours of the two contenders. They will also give you a ballot, and you can pick a favorite once you've tasted the beers. We'll report on the winner next week.
