### Beer Prediction Engine for Superbowl XLIII

Here's a little experiment to test the power of craft beer. I've put together a very simple equation to predict the winner of tomorrows Super bowl game.
Using the # of beer establishments (Beer Bars, Beer stores & Homebrew stores), Multiplied by
the # of Breweries & Brewpubs in each city, Plus the combined averages from Beeradvocate.com stats on average user rating (per brewery/pub - per city) = The winner by high score. Make sense???

Using this highly convoluted, bullshit system; we come up this.

Steelers 40 x 6 + 21.5 = 261.50*

Cardinals 15 x 14 + 44.34 = 254.34

I was think that Phoenix's higher number of breweries and brewpubs would have put it over the top but Pittsburgh's high number of Beer Bars, Beer stores & Homebrew stores bearly put it over the top.

If this system is proven to work, I will leave you all and go into the Beer vs. "Whatever" field and retire to a small island in the south pacific and drink nectar from the navels of native island girls ( 'till my wife kicks me in the beer nuts). If it doesn't.... well... then I guess you all loose and your stuck with me!
Cheers! and Go Steelers!

Not only did it accurately predict the winner, but if you divided each of those scores by 10, it very nearly predicted the score. You could be on to something ;)

That's very interesting, divide by ten.
Ah beer, is there no problem you can't solve?
