The 2014 Disney Beer Tournament – The Champion!
The Disney Beer Tournament championship round was interesting to say the least. Let’s start, as usual, with tweets and such.

Greg here loves a lot of things.
I voted for Jai Alai in the @beersandears final rounds because i love Tampa, India, Mad Men and sports. any vote for Ommegang is wrong

Sad Duffy is the Disney version of a sad panda.

At least one of you was disappointed Chimay lost. The Chimay supporters were pretty quiet for the most part.

Plenty of supporters on both sides of the contest.

Jai Ali vs Three Philosophers. I love hops so I have to go with the IPA but tough to vote against Three Philosophers. @beersandears

You all have been accused of East Coast bias! To be honest, the whole site is East Coast biased because Disney World has a lot more beer than Disneyland. Our Disneyland info is more sporadic as well.
For a while Three Philosophers was leading by a healthy margin. Things took a turn on Friday when this happened:
Make sure you vote for Jai Alai in the final four round of the Disney Beer Tournament! http://t.co/ZpseDPK6Ln

A similar post was put on Facebook and the result could only be described as… the deluge.
With 28,000+ Twitter followers and 38,000+ Facebook likes, a frenzy of votes for Jai Alai started coming in.
An Ommegang Twitter account out of Washington, DC tried to fight back.

The main Ommegang accounts, with 34,000+ Twitter followers and 46,000+ Facebook likes, could not be stirred. It was probably a busy weekend for them with the Game of Thrones season 4 premiere and their new Fire and Blood ale.
Some of you were not pleased.

But when it was all said and done, Three Philosophers couldn’t withstand the power of the Cigar City social media following. With 79% of votes entered, the champion of the 2014 Disney Beer Tournament is Cigar City Jai Alai IPA!
The 2014 edition of the Disney Beer Tournament has by far been the biggest with over 13,000 votes over the course of the tournament. All the interaction and comments have been wonderful and we’ve had a ton of fun bringing the tournament to you all this year. Hopefully next year will be just as much fun!
