(AKA The cheap-ass-24oz-beer-off )
Today, after being extremely indecisive in the beer I let my local grocer, I have decided to take on a project that I have talked about for a few years now. I am going to try to determine what’s the best cheap beer available is. I’ve thought long and hard about the correct way of approaching this project, and I believe I have come up with a plan that will help me conclude which beer is the best of the worst.
I think using single elimination and double elimination brackets isn’t completely fair when comparing tastes.
Enter Round Robin!
“In theory a round robin tournament is the fairest way to determine a champion among a known and fixed number of participants. Each player or team has an equal chance against all other participants,.. The primary disadvantage to a round robin tournament is the time needed to complete it.” – Wikipedia
OMG, there is no way im spending that much time on round-robbining (sp?) these beers. It would take FOREVER!
switching back to Double elimination!!!
So in order to keep this to a reasonable number of beers, I’m letting the market determine the participants by using the most affordable way to market and sell a cheep buzz known to man, Th 24oz can!
Using this list from Binny’s as a reference and eliminating mixers, malt beverages and anything breaking the $3.00 ceiling. I have narrowed down the contestants to the following beers:
Miller Genuine DraftPabst Blue Ribbon
Miller High Life
