From Concordia Ale House: "Day one went back and forth as all three states slugged it out, creating five different lead changes and each state looked like it could take control of the BRAWL at any time. Cheers rang out from the crowd as Oregon took the Day One lead, scoring some end of the round points right before the bell.
Day two started out fast and furious and Oregon started working the body, punching and jabbing its way into a comfortable lead taking a 90 plus point lead over Washington, and 150 plus advantage over California. Not a time for Oregon to get over confident and start dancing around the ring, since history has proven that NO lead is safe at the BRAWL!
Oregon remained calm and punched it's lead even higher, after Saturday's points were tallied Oregon had opened up a commanding 150 plus point lead that it never relinquished.
M.O.B. Award (Most Outstanding Beer) went to Oregon's Deschutes Armory, XX Pale BEER BRAWL beer #11 and help lead the way to Oregon's VICTORY and big Knock-Out punch.
FINAL SCORE: Oregon 1160 Washington 941 California 840
Congrats to Cam O'Conner (Deschutes Brewing) Oregon's Beer Brawl II Captain for putting together such a great line-up!"
By the way, the news above came directly from Concordia Ale House's recently (this morning?) launched highly anticipated website, which features both tap and bottle lists. Congrats on the successful Beer Brawl and website launch!
