Day 2: Garrison Nut Brown vs Bud Light Lime and Nachos vs Vending machine chips

PLUS the winners from yesterday's match-ups

Posted By on Fri, Mar 15, 2013 at 9:06 AM

OK, if you're new to the game here's a refresher on the most tasty of all March Madness brackets. In a nutshell, we've created the ultimate tournament where two of our faves —beer and bar snacks—will battle it out for the crown over the next few weeks. Can an underdog greasy snack upset one of our posh, craft beer selections? Only time will tell. Make your predictions by checking out the whole shebang below:

Before getting into today's tough battles, let us fill you in one what happend on Day 1. As predicted a near blow-out lead our dear Propeller IPA to stomp Faxe 10%, 87 percent to 12 percent. And salty snack lovers crowned sweet potato fries the winner with 82 percent of the votes, defeating celery and blue cheese dressing which, to our surprise, managed to somehow get 17 percent of the votes. Really?

Now, onto Day 2. On the beer court we've got a face-off between fierce competitor, and second place seeded, Garrison Nut Brown and the I Can't Believe It's Not Water, 15th seed Bud Light Lime. (I'm just kidding, these things just go down like water.) These are pretty much the oil and water of the beer world, this could be interesting.

And on the snack side of things our first place pick, the presumably cheese-smothered nachos, will takes on the dead-last-yet-close-to-our-hearts, chips. Not just any chips, chips that you scrounged up your change for, bought from a vending machine, tore open and tossed on the bar table to share with your friends. Will the corn chips piled-high with ooey, gooey goodness trounce the potentially fake nacho-flavoured potato chips? Ask your tummy.
