I am actually surprised on these (even though I finally got 2 right).  I would have though Belgium would have been a much closer runner.  Although the Republic of Corona does make a good brew.  I thought Sex on the Beach would have been much higher as well even though the Cosmo was a slam dunk.

stick a fork in me.  I chose Belgium.  I went with personal taste instead of sheep mentality.  I generally don't like German beer and I couldn't bring myself to vote for it.

I went with Belgium for beer and Italy for wine.  I guess I'll have to take pride in having taste over being a poor predictor of everyone else's poor taste.

Man I'm really sucking this one up... I can't believe people went with Germany over Belgium.  and A-B is no longer an American beer company.

What self respecting guy orders a drink called Sex on the Beach.   I was right on the cusp of making the championship division but there is no hope now....

I'll see your Belgium for beer, Italy for wine and raise you a Sam Adams for domestic excellence.

A guy buying 2 drinks hoping to get what he ordered?

Cosmo was the featured drink of the girls in Sex in the City.  'Nuff said.

I'm with you there, too, although there was enough ambiguity in the question that I didn't assume "best tasting" was implied.

Re: Q11, Q12 reveal 


Well, this will become my drop week.  I majorly missed on two big questions that cost me too many points.  Hopefully, those behind me didn't outdo me enough to leapfrog me in the overall standings.

Congratulations to our five winners who will move on to the National level challenge: allamericanbuzz, GTWannabee, spiffylubes, blowthewhistle, and TheStoopidGy.  Sheepulator is playing on another board as his home board so he can't qualify from the Hive.  Welcome to first time player godfather121784. 

I will have to check to see when the other boards are starting season 2.  We'll start at the same time.  If you'd like to be next season's moderator, send me a PM.  If no volunteers, I will host one more season.  But since I'll be doing a lot of weekend travelling during the next two months, some reveal days may be delayed.
