It's The Euros Random Stat -

Quite a simple one but it might be fun.

Look down your top rated breweries, what are your top ten European breweries, but here’s the twist only one brewery per country, so if you already had one from that country move on.

As an example based on mine…

I pass on Port / Lost Abbey as not European, Glasshouse will be 1 (England), Apex 2 (Sweden), pass on Neon Raptor, Verdant and Deya (already have a English brewery), Ca Del Brado 3 (Italy), and so on.

I will post mine shortly.

Also some of these countries didn’t qualify for the Euros!

I am afraid that Fantôme are in the Luxembourg region of Belgium, not Luxembourg the country.

I have so few breweries with 5+ rates from outside of England my list looks ridiculous! I’ve had to include a non-European country just to make a list of 10.

Well this is an embarrassing exercise for me since I have so few breweries with 5 rates or more to show up on my breweries list - I’m only able to get a top 3 and those are the 3 ‘home’ countries for the UK!

England - Salopian Brewery (10 rates, Average 4.02)
Wales - Polly’s Brew (5 rates, Average 3.98)
Scotland - BrewDog (14 rates, Average 3.52)

I have taken these result and applied euro vision scoring to the top 10 (12, 10 then 8-1) for each persons list. This means I have worked out who will win the Euros.

This is obviously not scientific and is very biased as posted on the uk and Ireland forum. So the Euros will be won by……

England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

The scoring was close with Belgium so maybe an England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Belgium :belgium: final with England nicking it in extra time or on pens.

Sweden :sweden: started strong but tailed off slightly towards the end. Maybe therefore a semi final place. The other Semi Final place (top 4 on my list) would be Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿.

So now we know who wins, no need to watch any other matches.
