Tip by July 5 for your World Cup Beer pick
Sunday 04 July 2010
The Quarter Finals of FIFA 2010 World Cup in South Africa begin on July 2 and so does the food blog Slashfood's World Cup Beer Quarter Finals. Make your tips before July 5 to see your beer (nation) in the Semi-Finals.
The World Cup Beer is a basic chart of international beers divided into the same groups of nations as the FIFA event so even if your favorite soccer team loses your beer could still win. It began with a selection of popular brews such as Heineken for the Netherlands, Foster's for Australia and Sapporo Draft for Japan.
But still provides a great opportunity to try out some new brews from Chile, Serbia, Korea and Cameroon while watching the rest of FIFA's World Cup.
Interestingly all those still in the running are not FIFA 2010 contenders.
To tip your favorites for the Quarter Finals, simply vote for one beer in each of the four competitions by July 5. The matches are:
France (Kronenbourg 1664) vs USA (Sam Adams Boston Lager)
Nigeria (Guinness Foreign Extra Stout) vs England (Newcastle Brown Ale)
Japan (Sapporo Draft Beer) vsDenmark (Carlsberg) vs Switzerland (Feldschlossen)
