Superbowl Beverage Of Choice

I posted a tweet earlier this week asking for suggestions on what I should drink during the Superbowl party. While seemingly very simple I consider this a very interesting and very important question.  See I don’t like football.  I go to a Superbowl party every year and rarely do I watch much of the game.  My favorite Superbowl memory is Bruce Springsteen sliding crotch first into the camera in 2009 (  So I go to the parties for the social aspect.  I get to hang out with friends, drink, and eat.  The Superbowl simply provides a great excuse.  So what to drink actually becomes a very important question.  @brewersofcanada of course replied with “Canadian Beer”, @mikelillie claimed there is no option but to drink Bud Light (while that is one of my least favorite beers on the planet I can see where he is going with it), @beerhunter4u replied and suggested I pick up some Crazy Canuck and 666 Devils Pale Ale, and finally I caught another post that argued there is no place for wine on the Superbowl menu.

Playing the wine blogger and devils advocate I would argue you can very cleverly pair many wines with your classic chicken wings, chili or nachos (perhaps a riesling, chianti, or a cava).  Really any classic Superbowl munchie could be paired with the right wine.  However the realist in me also doesn’t see wine playing much of a role in the Superbowl festivities.

All of these folks make very interesting comments and in my opinion all are in a way right. If you’re going to go watch the Superbowl just make it a beer.  There is not much more synonymous with American football than beer.  But as much as I would almost always agree with the pro Canadian sentiments of @brewersofcanada I think I have to go American on this one.  But sorry @mikelillie I’m not going Bud Light I will be showing up with something quite a bit more tolerable… Rolling Rock it is.

Enjoy the game and whatever it is you choose to drink.
