The bites and beverages have been tasted and the votes have been cast. Y’all, I can barely believe that we have reached the end of the 2014 Southern Weddings Mason-Dixon Madness Tourney. Drumroll please…
Congratulations to our friends at Cheerwine!! We are bubbling over with joy at the chance to crown you the 2014 Mason-Dixon Madness Champion!
Here’s the final look at our bracket:
Can you believe that no one in the Southern Weddings office predicted Cheerwine as their final champion? Hard to believe since Cheerwine is a staple for our office parties and celebrations. Heavens, Emily even transported cases of the bubbly cherry beverage to Connecticut for her reception, and we know she isn’t the only bride who has served ice cold Cheerwine to her guests!
Wanna know a secret? Cheerwine also sells Cheerwine-flavored ice cream and sherbet, and there are piles of recipes (yup, BBQ included) that have cleverly incorporated Cheerwine into the list of ingredients. If you love Cheerwine, there are heaps of ways to incorporate the cherry beverage into your big day!

I am a firm believe that good manners go a long way, and Cheerwine has been the definition of a gracious Southern contestant. They acknowledged that BBQ is their best friend, but noted there could only be one champ. I imagine there will be bottles of Cheerwine cracked open across the South this afternoon to celebrate! Congratulations, Cheerwine!
