While sipping brews and watching college basketball over the weekend, I experienced a couple of surprises. On the basketball front, Michigan State's victories over my Kansas Jayhawks and Louisville Cardinals were impressive.

At last there will be something that the folks in Detroit, site of next weekend's championship round, can be happy about.

I was also pleasantly surprised by a bottle of Northern Lights India Pale Ale brewed by Virginia's Starr Hill brewery that I sampled.  Nice bittering hops, a little pepper and citrus flavors as well.

These guys are new to me. Their Web site  says they started in Charlottesville and now brew in  Crozet, Va., a suburb.

Anyone else had this brew?

Anyone tried the rest of the brewery's line?

I am predicting a Michigan State - Nova final. What is your prediction?
