We have a winner in The Thirsty Beagle Beer Championship Series. It was a landslide, folks. Your champion is Flying Dog Tire Bite of Maryland. I will say this much for the FDTB people: They know how to get the vote out. Not so much for the Choc 1919 guys. So there you have it; 64 beers now down to one. Thanks to everyone who voted along the way. Hopefully we all had a little fun watching the bracket play out. Let’s hope the lesson we learned here is that anytime you can have a playoff, it’s a lot better than having some second-rate, subjective ranking criteria decide who gets to play for the championship. And to the Flying Dog guys: congrats, you’ve won the title of Oklahoma’s favorite beer. By all means, don’t be afraid to brag about your new standing, and in the process, spread massive amounts of publicity about The Thirsty Beagle around!
