If there’s one thing The Thirsty Beagle loves, it’s organizing annual competitions. I know, that sounds kind of weird. But you can break my love of organizing annual competitions down into two areas: I love competitions and I love tradition. It’s why I’ve been the organizer for the past eight years of a March Madness bracket. If I can attach a “XXth Annual” to the title of something, all the better. That’s the tradition part. And since my competitive sports days are long gone, I’m always searching for the next competitive outlet. That’s the competition part. So what better thing to do on my blog than organize an annual competition. Last year I started a 64-beer, bracket-style playoff — the Beer Championship Series — as an antidote to the college football BCS. And this year, it’s back. I give you the Second Annual Beer Championship Series. You can find the bracket at this link. Voting will start today with match-ups from each region of the bracket and will continue on weekdays until we’ve crowned the winner. You can use the handy-dandy polls below to cast your vote for Oklahoma’s favorite beer. Let the voting begin!
