Day 6: Granite Best Bitter vs O’Doul’s and Potato skins vs Fried pepperoni

The non-alcoholic underdog attempts a surprise takedown while loaded potatoes go head-to-head with pepperoni done right.


It's Day 6 and it feels like we're just getting started, with nary a surprise so far it really starts to feel like this sunny day is a good omen of upsets to come, read here if this is all gibberish to you. Taking inspiration from the intensity of the NCAA, and the creativity of Jezebel our march madness has 16 beers and 16 bar snacks battling it out for top spot. Can't wait to see what wins? Hurry up and vote, fools.

Before we get into today's pairings, let's have a look at yesterday's results. In an outcome that surprised no one (except me) the nut that tastes good both chunky and smooth fell victim to the disgusting mess that is sauced-up chicken wings. Way to go guys, have fun investing in wet naps, I'll just be over here consoling Mr. Peanut—a true gentleman. Though with exactly 20 percent of the vote we can at least rest easy that we weren't alone. Peanut props, ya'll! Meanwhile, Moosehead (seeded five) went up against Corona (way back in 12 position), and must have been a little too cocky in the jaunt of its antlers because the beloved summertime thirst quencher came out on top. I'm not going to say that the stupid snowstorm we got had anything to do with it, but Haligonians are ready for some sun, dammit.

Today, we've got the ultimate matchup! Seed number three, Granite Best Bitter—its arrogance proudly displayed in its name—plans to easily squash the beer pregnant ladies and non-drinkers call a poor substitution and everyone else calls pointless. But don't let that stop you from voting for the little guy, and maybe get a little buzz off responsible choices?

Plus, we've got loaded up potatoes (seed numero cinq), the perfect blend of crispy crunch, bits of bacon and melty gooeyness facing off against the only way to eat pepperoni (seeded way back in place 12, what were we thinking?)—straight out of the frying pan and into your mouth. May the odds be ever in your favour.

Voting closes tomorrow, and if you'd like to be kept in the loop of our March Madness madness, click here for daily reminders.
