Day 9: Propeller IPA vs Guinness, poutine vs sweet potato fries

That deep fryer is going cray, y'all.

Posted By on Tue, Mar 26, 2013 at 10:57 AM


Halfway through March Madness I can't help but get the feeling the people are hungry (and thirsty) for an upset. If this is all very strange and foreign to you, read up here for a bit of background. In short, we've chosen 16 beer varieties and 16 popular bar snacks and they are duking it out like the tasty little inanimate objects they are. See the complete bracket below:

Let's recap yesterday. Oland Export barely eked out a win against the Japanese powerhouse, Sapporo. 50 percent to 49 percent. How do those numbers even work? Don't ask me. すいません/Sumimasen, Sapporo. It was a valiant fight.

The snack match-up was less of a nail-biter, with mussels snapping up the win 68 percent to olives' 31 percent. But did you guys forget about those olives that are stuffed with almonds? What about the ones stuffed with GARLIC? What's that you say? Garlic butter? Ah, as you were.

Today is a real heavyweight match, India versus Ireland, with Propeller IPA facing off against Guinness. Choose your poison, city.

The snack side has turned out remarkably same-y. Fries against fries. I could opine on the differences, but when sweet potato poutine is as common these days as bottled water, I won't waste your time. This comes down to salty versus sweet, plain and simple. I am a salt fan, all the way but what say ye?

Voting closes tomorrow (Wednesday), good luck to the contenders and if you have a hankering for daily updates, click here and have at 'er.

Survey Asks

What should be done with the dead agave plant?

  • Chop it up and chase it with lime and salt
  • Cast it in bronze and put it where Cornwallis was
  • Burn it ritually for biomass
  • Plant it in every white girl's succulent garden
