Get ready to chow down and vote for your favorite West Alabama bars and drinking establishments through the 2022 Bar-ch Madness bracket!

We're all rooting for the Crimson Tide in the NCAA Tournament and the Women's NIT, but our favorite drinks and vibes are the backbone of gloating in Alabama's victories or burying the sorrows of defeat.

But, the Crimson Tide's future through those tournaments is out of our hands. This tournament is completely up to you!

These are some strong matchups if I may say so myself. Make no mistake, whichever bar intends to stumble away with the title in 2022 will have to earn it. That's where you come in!
