Pairing a refreshing, easy-drinking beer and an intense, star-laden football game is something all of us -- OK, a great many of us, can get behind, writes Alden Gonzalez for ESPN.com today. And so, on the day our nation celebrates its independence, he writes, it would be fun to take a look at some of the best tribute beers throughout the NFL.
After reading the article, here are a rundown of the some of the more interesting themed NFL Beers we liked:
According to the article, 902's Colby Janisch and Don Vogt (a longtime Giants season-ticket holder) wanted to come up with something both Jets and Giants fans would like, and Brady was a natural tie-in. The Giants beat Brady twice in the Super Bowl and the Jets have been terrorized by Brady in the AFC East for nearly two decades.
Gonzalez writes that Weyerbacher's president, Josh Lampe, was hanging out at a bar in Philly called Jose Pistola's. Their point-of-sale system ditched the standard greeting ("Thank You"), he writes, was replaced it with the following message: "Dallas Sucks." The bar's owner, according to the article, was Casey Parker, a good friend. Lampe told him they should collaborate on a beer to capitalize on the Philadelphia Eagles' unrelenting rivalry with the Cowboys and six months later, they had one—Dallas Sucks!
#ATTR (Ale to the Redskins)
It's a play on the team's fight song, "Hail to the Redskins," which was first performed in the stadium in 1983, Gonzalez writes.
No matter what you drink today to celebrate our great Nation’s independence Day, be safe and have a great time. Thank you for following us.
