Round 1: Wings Etc.’s classic Philly Cheesesteak Sub faces off against a new, limited-time Chicken Philly Sub. The Philly Cheesesteak Sub is a toasted hoagie roll filled with thin-sliced sirloin, grilled peppers, mushrooms, and onions, and melty Swiss, topped with Wings Etc.’s house garlic aioli. The Chicken Philly Sub is prepared just like the Philly Cheesesteak sub—but swaps out the beef for tender, thin-sliced, flat-top-grilled chicken.

Round 2: Guests can also vote for their favorite “Lifestyle” Lager. Reigning champ in the category is Michelob Ultra, which has enjoyed steady, widespread growth for the past 5 years and has spawned competition such as Yuengling Flight and Blue Moon LightSky, both of which feature lower carb, lower calorie formulas that have been the key to Michelob Ultra’s multiyear success.
