New York’s Brooklyn Brewery has challenged Boulevard Brewing Co. to a World Series bet.

Boulevard Brewing Co. is going to bat for the Royals.

Simon Thorpe, the president of the company that owns the Kansas City brewery, has accepted a bet with Brooklyn Brewery co-founder Steve Hindy. According to a post about the bet on brooklynbrewery.com, the losing city’s brewery must pour the winning city’s beer from their taps for one week following the Royals-Mets World Series. Thorpe and Hindy have also agreed that the loser of the bet must wear the opposing team’s ball cap and “toast the victor with their representative beer.”

According to a post about the bet on Brooklyn Brewery’s website, “the pride and pints of both cities are on the line.”

The bet was the brainchild of Brooklyn brewmaster Garrett Oliver, a New York native and longtime Mets fan. It has already resulted in some online smack talk between the breweries.

“It’s going to be so exciting for the residents of Missouri to get to try our beer in your tasting room!” Brooklyn Brewery tweeted to Boulevard at 1:04 p.m.

“Oh?” Boulevard replied a minute later. “That’s cool of you to send congratulatory beer in addition to pouring our beer in your tap room after we win.”

The question is: Which Boulevard beer should Hindy drink while toasting the Royals after the Boys in Blue take the crown? Comment here or tweet us @chowtownkc.
