Day 10: Bridge Farmhouse vs Garrison Nut Brown and Nachos vs Sliders

This is where it gets interesting.

Posted By on Wed, Mar 27, 2013 at 11:11 AM

We've done it. We've passed the half-way mark in the tournament and, surprisingly, without too many tears. But now that we've cracked the second round of face-offs, anything could happen. If you're wondering what in the world I'm rambling about it's about time you get your head in the game, so please consult this previous post.

Before I get into what may be one of the most exciting match-ups thus far, let me reflect on yesterday's battles. On the booze court, the hometown team Propeller IPA pulled out all the stops and handily defeated the brawny-but-lead-footed Guinness, 69 to 30 percent. And greasy fingers picked poutine over sweet potato fries with a 61 to 38 percent split, proving that apparently a tiny cup of curry mayo just isn't enough.

Today, you may—like myself—find yourself divided on which jersey to pull out for the beer battle. Old reliable Garrison Nut Brown, a second place seed, is geared up to take on the newbie north ender Bridge Farmhouse Ale. Will the seasoned vet win over the energetic, young blood? Home team versus home team? We'll be watching this one through our fingers.

And, on the solids side the number one nachos (with extra jalapeños, please) takes on the eighth-ranked dwarf burgers—er—sliders. This as a no brainer and I would bet my side of fries on it. Come on. Think of the cheese. Think of the guac! But you know this city and its beef, anything could happen.

The polls will be open until tomorrow morning, so after you listen to this bad boy, get clicking. And if for some reason you're only falling in love with this bracket now, get your daily reminders here.

What should be done with the dead agave plant?
