Three weeks, nine posts, and a very full recycling bin later, it’s over. We have a winner.
I took yesterday off for an unscheduled mental health day, but we are back and ready to finish out this competition by this weekend. Things not going to plan wound up being the theme of this semi-final.
These two semi-finalists might be light on flavor, but they were both heavy on escapism.
Today’s the last match up of round one before we head into the semi-finals and beyond.
With half of the first round complete, we only have two matchups left before the semi-finals.
This round brings together two new bracket competitors that wound up being very familiar. Will this closely seeded match up give us the first upset of the tournament?
This first match takes place between two contenders that I hadn’t tried before this tournament: one seeded at the very top by my readers and one brand I didn’t even know existed until this month. Let’s get this party started.
Eight bubbles enter. Only one can win. Will you choose the best bubbles?
I’ve had to cut this year’s bracket in half from 16 to 8. Instead of arranging each corner of the bracket based on flavor profiles, I’m asking you to help me seed the eight contenders.
One week later, I finally get around to finishing the wild card round and the fizzy finale.
