The brewers speak
Brewers’s Hoppy Choice
|1||Team #3||Brad & Joel||20.75|
|2||Team #2||Stephen & Vik||20.73|
|3||Team #7||Rick & David||20.47|
|6||Team #4||Solomon & Dana||17.00|
|7||Team #6||Jamie & Seth||16.19|
Brad and Joel somewhat famously broke up after winning #SpoBREW together, something that sent Brad spiraling down to last place in
#SpoBREW2. Now together again, the two came back and reclaimed their throne with their Smooth, Brown & Juicy, a
Stephen and Vik—the latter our brilliant as ever announcer—were close, but their IPA didn’t quite put them over the top.
Helge, who won the judge’s choice (see below), only placed #4 with the brewers. Just goes to show how different people’s tastes are.
In the end, the race was close, and with last place scoring a very respectable 16.19 points, we can safely say all beers in the hoppy category
held a high quality.
As for the malty category…
Brewers's Malty Choice
|2||Team #2||Ben & Nathan||21.30|
|5||Team #5||Will & Ryan||20.15|
|6||Team #1||Jason & Joe||18.93|
|7||Team #3||Allison & Ted||18.40|
|8||Team #8||Stephanie & Heidi||17.80|
It’s interesting that the malty category entries received higher overall points than the hoppy one. That’s somewhat abnormal here in the
And damn close the tally was too.
Bulk Bin Fever just barely managed to inch ahead of Ben and Nathan’s
A Touch Too Much. .03 points was
all that separated the two teams.
And again, one of the judges’s choices placed low: Jason and Joe—the judges’s winner—only managed to hit #6 with the brewers.
Stephanie and Heidi ended up last,
though that could be because they ran out of beer. (As did Joe, but apparently late enough for it not too have much of a negative impact.)
