Brooklyn Brewery lost its World Series bet with Boulevard Brewing Co. The New York brewery agreed to serve Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale in its taproom for a week.

Last week, Brooklyn Brewery challenged Boulevard Brewing Co. to a World Series wager.

The stakes were high: The losing city’s brewery would have to pour beer from the winning city’s brewery for a week. The New York brewery seemed pretty confident on Oct. 27, the day the World Series started.

But Boulevard wasn’t flinching, either.

Then Brooklyn Brewery started with the smack talk.

After the Royals beat the Mets 5-4 in game one, Boulevard was cheering.

Meanwhile, Brooklyn Brewery was turning to puppy videos for comfort.

After the Royals defeated the Mets 7-1 in Game Two, Boulevard got a little saucy by tweeting this photo to Brooklyn Brewery.

By Nov. 1, Brooklyn Brewery co-founder Steve Hindy started to realize that the World Series (and the bet with Boulevard) might not go his way.

After the Royals took the crown, the New York brewery sent this congratulatory tweet.

Boulevard returned the favor along with some Kansas City-brewed beer.

After the Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale arrived at its destination Tuesday, Brooklyn Brewery promised to fulfill its part of the bet.
