Hashtag Battles Week Eight!


Hello Beer Friends Nation!

In the spirit of competition, Beer Friends would like to invite everyone to our NFL season hashtag battles! Using 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 (#greatlakes vs #21stamendment), 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 to declare a winner after the Monday Night football game on ESPN. We're starting on Sunday morning so drink up - support your team, support your beer, drink local and hashtag battle!

Week Eight- Cleveland Browns vs San Francisco 49ers (#greatlakes vs # 21stAmendment)
Cleveland Browns always have a soft spot in my heart.  Being a Broncos fan, we were the bane of their existence in the 80's then in the 90's the team was stolen away from them.  They constantly try to make the correct personel moves and finally have a all-star running back... that's on the cover of Madden 12, and sitting out multiple games this year.  Can the Browns ever catch a break?  The city of Cleveland has caught a break in Great Lakes Brewing Company.  This is a legendary brewery producing delicious beers (including their Christmas Ale seasonal and Edmund Fitzgerald porter winner of MANY awards) and only distributing to the Ohio River Valley region.  Having lived in the area and having friends still located there - I'm always quick to ask for a sampler pack to enjoy in NYC.  Can Great Lakes Brewing Company help out the Browns and combine to win this week's hashtag battle?
San Francisco 49ers are having a fantastic year.  On top of the lowly NFC West with more wins than the rest of the division combined(3-15) the 49ers are on top of the world and a firm handshake to prove it!  Even though nobody can name anyone on that team (Braylon Edwards? That small handed Smith guy?) the 49ers are 5-1 with a solid lead to make the playoffs (2/4 of NFC are already eliminated) and the winning ways of the 90's are back in San Fran.  Winning is nothing new to 21st Amendment.  Always producing quality beers in cans and smaller batches - these brews are always a treat to find.   With these two winners combining forces can the powerhouses create team chemistry and produce a winner?  Or are they the Philly Eagles?
