It started back in March, with beer regular season action in 24 beer conferences. Your conference winners earned spots in the 64-beer bracket. Once in the bracket, the beers had to survive three grueling weeks of survive-and-advance drama. And now, after three weeks of competition, 63 different match-ups and thousands of votes, we have a winner in the third annual Beer Championship Series!
By a score of 62.59 percent to 37.41 percent, your winner is…
Marshall McNellie’s Pub Ale!!!
Congratulations to Marshall Brewing Co. for claiming back-to-back BCS titles! McNellie’s Pub Ale has been crowned by beer fans as Oklahoma’s favorite beer in 2010, earning Marshall the coveted Golden Tap Handle Trophy.
And congratulations as well to Mustang Washita Wheat and Mustang Brewing Co., which made a strong run through the bracket to claim the runner-up spot.
Here’s a look at the final, completed bracket.
With that, we bring the BCS to a close for another year. Thanks to all the beer fans out there who voted! It’s clear from the impressive BCS voter turnout this year that Oklahoma’s beer fan base is a growing group. Until next year, keep aiming high and keep reaching for that Golden Tap Handle Trophy. Cheers!
