Euro 2008: the Beer Version

Kind of a fun piece in The Guardian about a Euro Championship of beer, mirroring this summer's soccer tournament. Understandably, they began at the final 16, so no Belgium or Engerlund are involved, or Scotland or Norway for that matter.

The Czech Republic's Pilsner Urquell topped Germany's Schneider Weisse Hefe-Weizen in the semis, only to lose to Holland's Grolsch Weizen in the finals. This doesn't really prove anything, except to remind me that I don't have access to the full lines for a lot of big European brewers (Grolsch, Amstel, Carlsberg, etc.).
