ESPN Kicks Off World Cup of Beer

June 11th, 2010 · No Comments · General Beer News

If you consider yourself more of a beer drinker than a soccer fan, but you still want to be involved with all of the World Cup excitement, you should check out ESPN Page 2’s World Cup of Beer.

As the best players in the world head to the pitch, we pitch you to follow our own tournament: Page 2’s World Cup of Beer. Just as the real World Cup is divided into eight groups of four teams, we set up a similar competition involving one famous beer from each of the 32 nations. Over the next week, we will break down each group, sending two beers forward into a Round of 16. Then we will run it down the until one beer is left standing.

So whether you use our tournament as a way to introduce yourself to the real World Cup or just as a way to give new beers a try, we encourage you to follow along each day and let the comments fly. Did we select the right beer to represent each country? Which beer should win each group? Which should win it all? Please comment below, as we plan to drink it up and defend our picks.

Check out the Group A participants, and their choices to move on to the next round. Check the ESPN Page 2 homepage for updates daily.

As they’ll be picking a “famous beer” from each of the 32 nations, I’m guessing our home country’s representative won’t be something many readers of this blog would pick. But, it will be fun to follow along anyways.
