Beer Madness! Post-Day 1 Update
Day 1 was quite a thriller! A lot of upsets (according to our selection committee’s seedings) that left us seeing a number 3 come up short to a number 14! Here are the outcomes from Day1 and upcoming match-ups:
Butternuts Pork Slap took it to the Brooklyn Pennant and claimed a 5 vote win. Pork Slap is hoping to carry that momentum into the next round, but they’re up against the 60 Minute who absolutely demolished the Torpedo.
