Default Bells VERSUS Founders!!

The Ultimate Beer Bout in Mokena, IL!

Bells beers go head-to-head (no pun intended) with Founders beers in a beer match that will shake the foundations of the Earth!

$35 dollars ($10 for designated Drivers) gets you into the fight! Sample 7 rounds of brews (14 beers total, plus a surprise brew at the end!) and add your vote to the collective.

Here's a link to Founder's website:
Ultimate Beer Bout III

It appears Bells has no information on their site about this. Are they simply Blase, or just trying to be cool? WHO KNOWS!?

Anyway, I saw this on a tweet and thought I'd pass it along. I really wish I could go and participate in a head-to-head between two of my favorite breweries, but the distance!

I saw if advertised on Facebook and so sad it's just too far away. It'll be interesting to see what comes out in case of a tie!!

Agreed to the proving grounds. The breweries are like what, 50-60 miles away from each other?? (was lucky enough to visit both this summer in one trip!!)
Also agree Founders wins. KBS or CBS > anything Bell's (waiting for the attack to come from the Bell's fans after that statement )

I like pretty much all of Bells beers, but having said that, I like almost everything Founders has better. Not sure if I like Founders IPA offerings better than Hopslam though. I love that stuff!

But yeah, FFTW! (Founders For The Win!)

I can't find any results online. I did find a bit for the previous matches, but nothing yet for this one. I am surprised. Normally I would expect a listing of the votes and a brief description of the beers from someone.

i always miss out on stuff at this place. it's only about 25 min from my house, but i only hear about the cool events after the fact. they rented a bus and provided food+beer for dark lords day this past year. of course, i found out about it day of, 45 minutes after the bus left. nice.
