Brewery bets: Craft beer makers wager over World Series wins

Saint Arnold, Great Heights, and Eureka Heights are just three Houston breweries taking part in the World Series bets.

They start with tame wagers: Eureka Heights in Houston and Atlas Brew Works in D.C. have agreed that the winning city's brewery will get a case of beer, while the losing city must fly the flag of the winning team for a month.
