Need to bounce back from losing 20yrs of free Chipotle? Well, beer is better than burritos, and even better with a chaser of Zen. To commemorate March Madness, Lucky Buddha is promising a lifetime of free brews/total consciousness to the person with the best NCAA bracket in their Lucky Buddha Bracket Challenge.
The California brewery is holding the contest as an alternative to noted rich person Warren Buffett's promise of $1bil to anyone with a flawless bracket. All you have to do is go to their site, fill out your bracket, and submit before noon tomorrow (that's March 20) to enter. Lucky Buddha will tally the wins, then randomly select a victor from the pool of highest-scoring brackets. That lucky monk-in-training will be entitled to two free cases of Lucky Buddha each month for the next 600, amounting to 50yrs. Unfortunately the competition is closed to anyone in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia -- so if that's you, maybe consider making better offerings to Buddha in the future. Like beer.
