Day 13: Meet the Elite Eight

Propeller IPA vs Keith's. This battle is no joke

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2013 at 12:23 PM

The elite eight have been chosen! From now until Thursday, things slow down a bit—only one match up per day—but let's give a drunken round of applause to the strongest competitors, nachos, potato skins, chicken wings, poutine, Granite Best Bitter, Bridge Farmhouse Ale, and today's warriors, Propeller IPA and Keith's. Have no idea what is happening here? Read this for precious, precious context. And check out the updated bracket over yonder.

Before we start today's hype man spiel, let's talk about the weekend. While you were stuffing your face with ham and chocolate, poor, poor Granite and Oland were having the battle of a lifetime, Azumi-style, in which two friends (I'm assuming) had to fight to the death. Why, master, why??? In the end, Granite delivered the finishing blow to Oland, 58 percent to 41 percent. Snacks were a similarly close battle, with potato skins smothering mussels 52 percent to 47 percent. Mussels had romance on their side, but I'll tell you who I wouldn't like to meet in a darkened alley: MELTED CHEESE.

Today shows two hometown favourites going at 'er, Propeller IPA versus Keith's. One is the strong (certainly in alcohol content), silent type, likely pretty decent at fixing a dripping tap, capable of making a mean carbonara and the other is the life of the party, bubbly, slightly goofy and manages to look oddly attractive in cargo shorts. Who will be your beer boyfriend, guys? Dish:
