The Battle

Battle of the Beers

A few more sips from 2002

More general comments about the tournament:

"May the sips be occasional and rewarding, not constant and degrading. Great contest idea! Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder and there are a lot of good ones in the line up. Can't wait to see how it all plays out. Northwest brews rule!"
- Nelson (in Washington)

"Frivolity nothing, this is serious stuff."
- Jim Rosati

"It is truly fun finding some of these to try and to evaluate throughly and properly."
- Tom Measday

"One with large national presence would have to be favored. As an example, Bell's Expo Stout is superior to Redhook. But how many people have drank Bells? I've had everything on the list, but my guess is that in the voting, this will be rare."
- Tim Tomlinson

- David Belknap

"I love it...3 cheers for geekdom! Do It Again and expand the list!"
- Marc D. Andren

"What a great idea! Sent to me by a fellow hophead at work."
- Rob McCabe

"This is the kind of time-waster I can get foamy about!"
- Scott Granse

"I have finally found a web site with everyone's best interest at hand."
- Jason Tomanek

"Predict a winner?! It will be more fun to sit back, drink my favorite, and watch the madness unfold."
- Steve Kayner

"If I closed my eyes I could visualize blowing the suds off the tops of frosty mugs, wafing, swirling, gulping and burping then belching my approval! Ho, ha! bring em on!"
- Gil Carter

"I expect the better known beers to win this but we will just wait and see how much people the browse your site know."
- Josh (in Oregon)

"Beer voting. How COOL!"
- Eric Federspiel

"Winner? No idea. But this is a hell of a lot of fun."
- Marty Power

"This will be interesting due to the number of beers that have constrained distribution. But the challenge is to try to find a way to try them, eh?"
- Bob Silk

"Frivolous? FRIVOLOUS?!? Beer??? Never!!!"
- Sam Orr

"I've been waiting for this contest my entire life... sniffle, sniffle... I'm so happy I could cry. Go Widmere Hefe!!!!"
- JB

"May the best drink win! Waiting in parched anticipation!"
- Linda Hudson

"Come on anything-but-Lite. Frivolity . . sounds tasty to me."
- Jeff Haas

"This has to be better than Bud Bowl."
- Michael Switlik
