Okay, baseball fans – it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Game 1 of the MLB World Series kicks off tonight at Fenway Park as the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals vie for the championship title. The last time the Red Sox and Cardinals met was in the 2004 World Series when the Red Sox swept the series and “Reversed the Curse,” but who knows how the 2013 version is going to play out.
What we’re really interested in is how each city’s drink options match up. Tell us who you think should win each category, based on the following options:
Samuel Adams vs. Budweiser
Budweiser reigns supreme throughout the Midwest, but Samuel Adams is king of New England. Which one deserves the title as best in the nation?
St. James Winery vs. Boston Winery
Both of these wineries don’t produce huge, national brands (Missouri and Massachusetts aren’t exactly the next wine countries), but what they do make is widely enjoyed and quite popular. Which winery makes the best vino?
Greylock Gin from Berkshire Mountain Distillers vs. Handcrafted American Gin from Pinckney Bend Distillery
The gin from Pinckney Bend Distillery has won 2 international gold medals, but Greylock Gin was named the #1 craft gin in the country last year by the New York Times. Which accolade do you think holds more clout?
360 Vodka vs. Bully Boy Distillers
Bully Boy’s vodka is USDA certified organic, but 360 Vodka says it’s the first “eco-friendly” vodka because of the way it has created an innovative recycling program to reduce waste and resource consumption. Which “green” vodka gets your vote?
Copper Run Distillery vs. Turkey Shore Distilleries
Copper Run Distillery is the first legal distillery in the Ozark Mountains since Prohibition ended, but Turkey Shore is in Ipswich, which has a rich history in the rum trade (Ipswich rum distillery operated from 1770-1836). Which rum with historic roots do you prefer?
