Next battle......

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

here's an idea for next year, the battle of non-microbrew beers(and Sam Adams doesn't count as a microbrewery)

Just think.

Natural Light vs. Budweiser....

That would be a lot easier than a Microbrew Battle. There are so many microbrews to choose from that I don't see how that battle could be successful. But a battle of these well-known watered-down beers should get plenty of attention. !+)

Technically, Sam Adams does count as a microbrewery (in the beer world).

The American macros would be:

Anheuser-Busch
-Budweiser, Michelob, Natural, Busch

SABMiller
-Miller

Coors
-Coors, Keystone, Killian's, Blue Moon

The largest brewery in the world is Belgian-owned InBev, but their beer doesn't suck so I won't list it... and they barely sell much here either.

SABMiller includes "South Africa-Bavaria" which brews some great beers in Europe like Carling, Castle, Amstel and Pilsener... but I won't count them as macros either because they're only popular in Europe where people care about what beer tastes like, and because tehy're not brewed in the US.

All other breweries are consider Micro or craft.

Battle of the beer would be too difficult. There's too much variety, and in the end it would just end up being something lame like Bud Light winning it, simply because that's what the most people drink and/or are familiar with.

Battle of the microbrews would be impossible. Too many to include in a proper bracket, not to mention so many of them are so localized that unless you're a real beer afficianado you haven't tried them simply because they're not available in your area.

How about instead of a best-of-something, do a worst-of-something.

Maybe something like Worst Sports Announcer/Commentator.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

Battle of the TV Characters? You could do one side for the sitcoms, one side for the dramas. Have the winners face each other in the championship.


I like the TV Characters idea. In fact I started up a topic on TV Characters recently and there is a nice list going.

Still like that idea, although I would like the breakfast battle to happen too.
