But when you look at the European bracket, all heck broke loose. Westvleteren 8 (#1) is the odds on favorite, as it is accompanied by #12 seed Budvar (who was in the finals last year), #11 Chimay (who had to overcome the Play-In game) and #10 BrewDog Tokio* (who beat the #2 seed Cantillion). Still all great beers left. It gets better in the Canned Beer bracket, although the #1 seed Oskar Blues Gubna was downed by Yuengling Traditional Lager. Guinness (#4), 21st Amendment Back in Black (#3) and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (#2) were all expected to progress to this level.
