Beer Madness! 27 (3)Heavy Seas Marzen v. (14)Otter Creek Copper

(3) Heavy Seas Marzen
v.
(14) Otter Creek Copper Ale

Nothing says March Madness like a battle royal between a German style Marzen and German style Altbier.  Both beers come in pretty tame at under 6% ABV so I expect a low scoring affair.  While their pedigrees are impressive I expect their German pedigree to reign supreme – obsessive deference to the rules, socks & sandals, and of course arrogance.  Normally you could cite arrogance as a potential downfall for a top seed, but what happens when the underdog is just as arrogant?  The Marzen wins, but we all lose.
