Brewing News – Global Warming Open – Time to make your bracket

Brewing News - Global Warming Open

Hello Craft Beer Fans! Here we go again, it is time for the Third Annual Global Warming Open!

(from the Brewing News Hop Tips)

Remember the premise: You’re sitting. It’s hot, real hot. The summer has broken all heat records and those chunks of Antarctica that have broken away have pushed water levels so high that you’re surrounded by water. But no chunks of ice.

At first you like the heat; it’s like having your own hot tub. But soon you become uncomfortable. You need to cool down. You need a beer. A beer will help you through this crisis. But which beer goes best with global catastrophe and hot weather? “Steward!” you call. “Assemble the players and let the matches begin!”

Brewing News is proud to present the 2010 Global Warming Open, a contest pitting refreshing summer beers against one another to determine the most refreshing beer in America. Like the springtime National IPA Championships, participating summer beers from across the nation were randomly chosen for a 1:1 single elimination bracket tournament. Winners of the first round will advance to the next.

At the same time, beer lovers like you can choose the winners for each round on-line! A grand prize will be awarded to the reader who predicts the most correct GWO brackets. The top prize will be a free case of the 2010 Global Warming Open Champion beer.

The complete summer beer tournament bracket has been posted on-line. Join us for what will be one of the most fun events this summer! See the field in the locker room and then make your predictions today at .

Be sure to make your picks by this Sunday, June 13 at Noon EST! Don’t forget to make sure your picks are complete…unfinished brackets don’t score very well!
