Cinco de Sexty Chug-Off Tournament 2014

SignPic

Yup, you’re seeing clearly, we sponsored our first party, and it was fucking epic. Don’t mind the fact that I’m drinking Coors Light, I needed them for my wizard stick (which was completed at the 15 beer mark around 10:00pm). I had a cup of craft beer with me on the side, so I didn’t spend the entire night only drinking silver bullets.

Mass Transit Ale
Bristol Brewing Company
Colorado Springs, CO
5.1% ABV

CHUG Rating:
Chuggability: 7
Nothing stopping you from drinking this one as fast as you like.
How Much: 5
I paid $8.99 for a 6-pack which isn’t bad, but there are plenty of other beers I’d rather have at that price point.
Uhhh…Taste: 4
It takes a lot for an amber ale to impress me, and this one didn’t do it. If you love ambers then maybe try it, but it was pretty forgettable to me.
Gettability: 2
Year round offering only in Colorado.

Odell Brewing Company
Fort Collins, CO
4.5% ABV

CHUG Rating:
Chuggability: 9
This is beer is made for chuggin, and that’s just what I’ll do. Perfect summer brew.
How Much: 7
I paid $9.99 for a 6-pack. It’s more than I generally like to pay for a beer under 5% ABV, but it was well worth it.
Uhhh…Taste: 8
Super light and easy drinking session ale, but enough hops to make it satisfying.
Gettability: 3
Seasonal offering in just 9 states.
Overall Rating:   7.8

Apricot Blonde
Dry Dock Brewing Company
Aurora, CO
5.1% ABV

CHUG Rating:
Chuggability: 8
Light and smooth and the fruitiness didn’t hamper the chugginess.
How Much: 7
I paid $8.99 for a 6-pack which seemed about right.
Uhhh…Taste: 6
I’m not a fruit beer fan at all, but this one was suprising good. At the brewery they do a half apricot/half IPA pour called the “Hopricot” and it is fantastic.
Gettability: 1
Limited distribution in Colorado only.

ABV: 5.3 %

Ooooh, this goes down smooth. Be sure to bring an arsenal of these to your next chugging competition. Definitely a Beer Mile option.

How Much: 6
I paid $8.49 for a six-pack, which ended up feeling like a fair price.

Uhhh…Taste: 6.5
Pretty decent. It’s exactly what it says it is: a summer ale. Good for those hot days when you’re mowing the lawn or just chugging in your kitchen. I don’t mind having a few of these when the temperature goes up, but I basically wouldn’t touch it in the winter.

Gettability: 5
Alaskan Brewing distributes to around 15 states, all west of the Mississippi and it’s only available about a third of the year.

Overall Rating:   6.2
