Winning the Beer Championship Series is great for bragging rights, and overall worldwide pride and prestige, but for two years, the winner has had nothing else to show for it. Until now my friends.
Stanley Cup? Please.
Lombardi Trophy? Whatever.
The Claret Jug? Move over.
Make way for…
The Golden Tap Handle!
That’s right beer fans! The winner of the 2010 Beer Championship Series claims the coveted Golden Tap Handle Trophy, where the beer’s name will be etched in immortality. Maybe a little too dramatic? Heck no! This is the Golden Tap Handle Trophy we’re talking about here!
So who’s going to win it this year? I can’t tell you that, but I can tell the four beers that won second-round match-ups on Wednesday and advanced to the Sweet 16.
