It’s just over 6 weeks since we announced our FIBA Basketball World Cup of Beer challenge. It’s 3 days until it starts…and wow do we really need your help.
The last time we did a beer challenge, it went down really well but there were lots of complaints about the beers chosen. This time around I’m trying to avoid that by giving you, our readers, the chance to pick beers for your nation…even if the Brazilian journalist I respect most really wants me to pick Brahma for his nation.
In the immortal words of Bugs Bunny…
So here’s what I am hoping you, the BiE readers, can do. We want beers for every one of the 24 nations in the FIBA World Cup of Basketball. I’ll list them here below. Any nation that gets a beer nominee before Thursday will be grand, happy as Larry as they say. Any that doesn’t will come down to my judgement which means loads of you will be unhappy.

For most of the beers with ??? I have a beer in mind but it will be far better if those of you from those nations or who really like one of their beers make the choice. The power is yours but time is running out.
