Four years ago, Harpoon Brewery in Boston made a Super Bowl bet with Brooklyn Brewery in New York. The loser would have to put the winner's beer on tap for a week. We know how that turned out. The Giants upended the Patriots' quest for a perfect season, and Brooklyn Lager was available on draught for a week at Harpoon's tap room on Boston's waterfront. Now they're at it again, and they made the wager today on Twitter for all the world to see. Here's the exchange:

Harpoon: good morning @brooklynbrewery. want to go double or nothing (for entertainment purposes only)

Brooklyn: @harpoon_brewery so if #Giants beat the #Patriots you pour @brooklynbrewery for 2 weeks and wear 2 Giants jerseys at the same time?

Harpoon: @brooklynbrewery when the #Patriots win the Super Bowl, you'll pour #HarpoonIPA for a week and wear a Brady jersey! #superbowl

Brooklyn: @harpoon_brewery How about when Giants beat the Patriots, u have to sell BKLYN instead of Harpoon for 2 yrs & wear NY pizza instead of pants

Harpoon: @brooklynbrewery lets stick with pouring beer for a week! we don't want you to welch on a bet.

Brooklyn: @harpoon_brewery fiiiiiiiiine
