Well, duh. It was determined in a very scientific contest, detailed here.
Cool idea, for sure. But it seems like it should be taken to the next level. Like the Bend breweries head to Portland for a beer vs. beer challenge, or vice versa. With a little more pub and a little more effort put into the ground rules, it could be really big and pretty cool.
Anyway, we missed the first version of the Beer Olympics, but we plan to be there the next time it happens.
