People get a kick out of the Before and After Rounds, so I thought I’d post this week’s on here, especially since it’s Beer Week. A beer name forms the first part of the answer, then melds into the second part of the answer. For example, if I said “America’s best selling beer skipped this, just like Procol Harum did in Whiter Shade of Pale.” The answer would be Bud Light Fandango. Got it? Good. And keep in mind, sometimes the match will be in the middle of a word. (So if I said “The King of Beers had this explorer and entrepreneur beheaded”, you’d answer Budweiser Walter Raleigh.)
