Sweet, Sweet Beer 16

In honor of the annual NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16, I have decided to put my own little spin on this American classic in the form of the Sweet, Sweet Beer 16. Here's what the tournament will look like:
  • Sixteen brands of beer will be entered, broken down into four regions each with seeds #1-4.
  • What? You don't like my seeding? That's too bad. Go make your own goddamn Sweet, Sweet Beer 16.
  • If there is a tie in the votes for a matchup at the end of a round, advancement will be determined by a coin flip.
  • The winner of each matchup will be determined via reader poll. Each poll will be open for two days. Winner advances to the next round, so on and so forth.
With all that said, ladies and gentlemen, here are your beers competing in the First Annual Sweet, Sweet Beer 16:

Southwest Regional

#1 Newcastle vs. #4 Miller High Life

#2 Sapporo vs. #3 Kirin Ichiban

East Regional

#1 Fat Tire vs. #4 Colt .45

#2 Heineken vs. #3 Blue Moon

Northeast Regional

#1 Chimay vs. #4 Modelo

#2 Stella Artois vs. #3 Corona

Midwest Regional

#1 Guinness vs. #4 Becks

#2 Sierra Nevada Pale Ale vs. #3 Pacifico

To be a part of the poll, simply select your choice for the winner of each matchup and then enter them as a comment to this post. Winners will be announced Friday morning.
