Getting Ready For The Superbowl
Now that the two teams have made it to the Superbowl it’s time to get ready for Superb Owl night with @phileasphil.
As we have done for the last few years, we try to source beers from the locations of the two teams and the host venue as well. This is actually more difficult than it sounds because there may be a large number of breweries in the US, trying to find somewhere that sells those beers in the UK is quite hard.
Last year we were unable to get a beer from Atlanta or Georgia to toast the Falcons, so ended up with just some New England ales and one from Texas as well as that was where the game was played.
This year the New England Patriots were back in the final looking to win back to back Superbowls and so I found one of the beers we had last year. The next step was to track down some more breweries especially ones to cover the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fortunately, although with a bit of work, I was able to find some on Beer Hawk that were from Pennsylvania, although one of the beers that looked really good was out of stock. I dumped them in my basket and went through checkout. It took about an hour from start to finish. A damn sight quicker than it did last year!
