Hello Beer Friends Nation!
Dreams are broken and the strong move on… who ever thought the Rocky Mountain IPA had a chance against Breakfast Stout or (the biggest upset) Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout over Bristol’s Laughing Lab, not to worry Bristol fans – Mass Transit pulled through over the strong year-round available Founder’s Porter. Can Yeti continue it’s run? can Bell’s pull through as the two seed continuing to a 1 vs 2 match-up? Vote and decide!
The 1 vs 8 match up has last year’s winner Fat Tire advancing to play 471 Small Batch IPA from Breckenridge Brewery. This is Breckenridge’s first year in the BFF4 and they had a strong showing… can they be a Butler and bring down the #1 seed?
The 5 vs 13 includes the biggest winner in the Colorado/Michigan bracket vs the upset minded Equinox Brewery Nova Pale Ale who squeezed by Odell’s – Cutthroat Porter (even on nitro pour? Nova must have a big following…). Can the magic continue? Or do they become like Villanova and get bounced from the tourney?
The 6 vs 3 matchup features no surprises – Oskar Blue’s Dales Pale Ale vs Founders Breakfast Stout. Both are strong and excellent examples of a well crafted beer… Both are in my favorite go-to beers… I’m so torn!
The 7 vs 2 match up features the ever popular Bell’s Oberion vs the little known (and well liked) Bristol Mass Transit. These are two lighter beers going head to head so expect a high scoring affair.
