Hello Beer Friends Nation! In the spirit of competition, Beer Friends would like to invite everyone to our NFL season hashtag battles! Using hashtagbattle.com we will pit two breweries against each other when their NFL counterparts are facing off on the gridiron. Are you ready for some football? And drinking? And #hashtag battle?!?!?!
What's a hashtag battle? When you're drinking a beer of a brewery competing in the battle (#sixpoint vs #yardsbrew), throw a #hashtag of the brewery and tweet it (or setup your foursquare or untappd to push to tweet and include the #hashtag) and we'll use hashtagbattle.com to declare a winner after the Monday Night football game on ESPN. And because football needs beer, we're starting on Saturday morning to include the brews consumed during College Football Saturdays. Support your team, support your beer, drink local and hashtag battle!
Week Three - New York Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles (#sixpoint vs #yardsbrew)
Giants have had a up and down season. The pre-season was ravished by injuries and the first week loss to Washington that still can't decide on a starting QB (Beck looked better in the preseason) were followed by a brilliant Monday night performance against the up and coming St. Louis Rams - I'm still thinking about the Hixon catch. Sixpoint was recently voted the best beer to represent New York state and for good reason, with the recent release of cans, Sixpoint is on the up and up. Can both continue to rise in this weeks hashtag battle?
Philly was the talk of the off-season. Sure New England added a bunch of players but Philly broke the bank and picked up some of the gems of the free-agent class (must have been a weak offensive line free agent class - even Mike Vick couldn't escape last week). Yards is a infamous brewery amongst the Beer Friends because you can't get it in New York and have to travel across the Hudson for a taste (Every trip has been worth it). I even had a Yards dry-hopped IPA that I couldn't see straight after, much like Vick after the Falcons game. Can both of these major players live up to the hype and impress by the end of the season? Tune in to find out!
Update! Although the G-Men dominated in this game, #yards came out on top - maybe a nice cool @yardsbrew would help the swelling in Mike Vick's hand...
