Washington Prevails Over Oregon and California in the Beer Brawl III at Concordia Ale House

March 1st, 2010 · 2 Comments · California Beer, Events, Oregon Breweries, Washington Breweries

After jumping out to an early lead in last week’s Beer Brawl III at Concordia Ale House, Washington was able to hold off a comeback from Oregon and pull out a slim four vote win. The matchup was amazingly tied with Oregon heading into the last hour of the competition on Sunday evening, so thanks to whoever put down those last few votes! Washington now has two wins in the Beer Brawl, and Oregon has one. I’m sure Oregonians all over the state will be demanding a recount.

The final score:
Washington: 1,205
Oregon: 1,201
California: 1,061

The winning Washington lineup included Black Raven Totem Pale Ale, Pike Double IPA (from Seattle Beer Week), Hale’s Pikop Andropov’s Rushin’ Imperial Stout, and Snipes Coyote Moon.

The Oregon lineup included HUB Organic Pale Ale, Ninkasi Tricerahops Double IPA, Pelican Tsunami Stout, and Deschutes Hop Henge Experimental Batch #7.

The California lineup included Anderson Valley Poleeko Pale, Firestone Walker Double Jack IPA, North Coast Old Rasputin Imperial Stout, and Stone Double Bastard.

The M.O.B. (most outstanding beer) award went to the Hop Henge.

    The Pike Double IPA was and is a fresh batch.
    Re-released for the Spring it is available in 22oz bombers and on draught. It’s been on at the Pike since 2/14 and Click now has kegs to sell. It will be available into May.

    Also – the 12 tastes ( for $12) we’re somewhat disappointing. They come in 3 oz glasses that leave no room for aroma and or head. I waited a good 20 minutes to let them warm up before making a decision. Picked Black Raven and Pike correct; mistook Pelican for Hales and had no idea on the “other” category – ( picked Deschutes ) – so I guess I had a split ticket, 2 for OR and 2 for WA.

    Letting Concordia Ale House decide which state is the best for beer would be like letting Florida decide a presidential election…er…
    That being said, congrats to Washington, one hell of a beer state (probably second best). Hope to visit soon.
