Another few days have gone by and we’ve had another exciting round with two close matches! First, your comments from the last few days.
Greg wants an all-IPA championship! Does he get his wish?

John has threatened table flipping if Jai Alai doesn’t advance! This tweet was retweeted by Cigar City and a couple of others, did it help?

Lots of you are (or have suddenly become) fans of Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA…

I'm now Team Dogfish 90min for @beersandears because it's awesome, but it's not a beer I associate w/Disney & had to look up where it's sold

…but not all of you!
@beersandears going to harass my friends for the sole goal of dogfish 90 losing. I have no other purpose. None.

Can you guess how @dcnesq voted? We don’t know for sure, but we have an idea.

Anyway, on with the results! We’re holding the full bracket until the end again, because we had two tight matches!
First, the left side of the bracket was tied at 7:00 PM EDT! That means we’ll do our first coin toss of the tournament. Last year we had coin tosses in three rounds of the tournament; it’s surprising that we’ve made it this far without one.
And the winner is…
Ommegang Three Philosophers!
On the right side of the bracket, the two beers were nearly evenly matched as well. Both one seeds, Cigar City Jai Alai IPA and Chimay Blue battled it out throughout the match, but when the final bell rang we had a winner.
Only eight votes separated these two, but the winner is…
Cigar City Jai Alai IPA!
This means you now have one very important decision to make. Who will be the 2014 Disney Beer Tournament Champion?
Will it be the underdog who’s scrapped through each round of the tournament? The 9.8% ABV quadrupel from New York who would not quit? Or will it be the Florida native? The 7.5% ABV bomb of bitterness?
This poll will close Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 7:00 PM EDT/6:00 PM CDT. Vote for your 2014 Disney Beer Tournament champion now!
Here’s the full bracket for you:
P.S. for those of you who are wondering, here are the voting results at 7:00 PM EDT/6:00 PM CDT Wednesday, April 2, 2014 when the polls closed (top two polls).
