Beer Madness! Finals! (1)Two Hearted v. (10)Dirty Bastard

(1) Bells Two Hearted
v.
(10) Founders Dirty Bastard

The Dirty Bastard cruised past the Troegenator and into the finals, while the Two Hearted managed to upset the surprising favorite Hopslam.  Personally, I believe the battle between the two Bells was the real finals.  I don’t see the Dirty Bastard holding a candle to the Two Hearted.  But, I’ve been incredibly wrong before.

So, here it is, the finals decided by YOU!  Get your votes in.  The polls will be open all weekend, so spread the word for your favorite!


Beer Madness! Final Four-2 (10)Dirty Bastard v. (1)Troegenator

(10) Founders Dirty Bastard
v.
(1) Troegs Troegenator

Two very strong competitors meet on the southern half of the bracket.  Troegenator, the favorite, has been leaving weaker beers in its wake as it’s been cruising through the tournament.  Dirty Bastard, on the other hand, has had to take down some incredibly tough competition.  Has that competition worn out the Dirty Bastard?  Or was it just strengthening it for the title run?


Beer Madness! Final Four-1 (1)Two Hearted v. (5)Hopslam

(1) Bells Two Hearted
v.
(5) Bells Hopslam

The epic showdown for Bells supremacy!  A delicious hoppy collision!  Can the strength and power of the Two Hearted outlast the speed and tenacity of the Hopslam?  Who will reign supreme in the Land of the Bell?


Beer Madness! Final Four!

We’re down to our Final Four!

It’s a Battle of the Bells on one side and a couple angry looking labels on the other.

Three of our finalists are from Michigan… is this a commentary on how good Michigan beers are?  Perhaps.  But I’ll do my best to keep that from happening.

Prepare your voting finger for tomorrow at noon when the polls open!


Beer Madness! 60 (1)Troegenator v. (6)Dortmunder

(1) Troegs Troegenator
v.
(6) Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold

The Dortmunder Gold has managed to sneak past a few beers that could have easily taken it out.  I don’t see their luck carrying them past the force of nature that is the Troegenator.  Blow out!


Beer Madness! 59 (1)Yards IPA v. (10)Dirty Bastard

(1) Yards IPA
v.
(10) Founders Dirty Bastard

The Yards IPA has had, by far, the easiest run in the tournament.  Their only challenger so far has been the Goose Island Honkers.  The Dirty Bastard has been scratching and clawing its way through the competition.  I’m expecting this to be the last match for the Yards.
