Baltimore is painted purple this weekend, as its hometown Ravens face off against the San Francisco 49ers. But if the Ravens lose, at least one Charm City bar will be painted red and gold.

Two craft breweries are representing their Super Bowl squads with a friendly beer wager. Baltimore's Heavy Seas Beer is facing off against San Francisco's 21st Amendment Brewery in what they're dubbing a winner-take case competition.

The brewery from the losing city has to ship out a case of their finest brews. The winning city will also sends out a case, except this case will be full of t-shirts for the losers to wear while subjecting themselves to public photo blog total humiliation.

To both craft breweries, we say cheers!
