FoBAB 2018 Best In Show Futures – Odds to Win

We love to mix our beer and our gambling over here (see March Madness for details.)

With that in mind, we’ve published a list of futures odds for the winner of Best in Show at the Festival of Barrel Aged Beers. I’d say this is for entertainment purposes only but with the federal changes on sports gambling, do we even have to say that anymore? In any case, find someone else to book your $5 bet on Bottle Logic.

Opening line is the brewery’s line, beers sight unseen. Have at it, degenerates.

  • Wilds typically win less than dark beers
  • Last 2 winners have been More Brewing and Listermann Brewing
