Curious to hear what readers are planning for this awesome Super Bowl Sunday. Prefer to watch with just a few people or a huge group? At the bar or at someone’s house? Or, will any of you be joining Brother Steve at the game in Dallas?
What do you plan to eat? What will you be drinking? Will you listen to Fox commentary or do you pipe in Wayne and Larry on WTMJ? What other rituals do you have?
For me – I prefer watching at home (I’m pretty sure the Packers have gotten this far because I continue to sit on the left side of my den couch). I prefer smaller gatherings – some good friends and family who like and know football, like and know food and like and know beer. We’ll be grilling out – likely brats, sausages and along with chicken nachos (homemade chips and guacamole). We will be sure to have a number of beers – headlined by a beer that has been creeping higher and higher in my beer rankings list: Hinterland Pale Ale. It’s a smooth, very drinkable ale – and importantly, unlike many other micro-brews out there, it’s not so full of extra ingredients that you get a hangover WHILE you’re drinking it. Quality, unique, refreshing. Hinterland itself is a restaurant in Green Bay (where at least Ryan Pickett enjoys eating – likely other Packer players too), but they also have restaurants in Door County (The Whistling Swan – one of my favorite restaurants period) and Milwaukee – called Hinterland Gastropub. And as usual, I’ll supplement the tastier beer selection with some light beer – probably Miller High Life Light.
