GLBC Releases 73 Kolsch | Brewed with Cleveland Football Hero Joe Thomas

August 4, 2018 |

Cleveland’s Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) has an affinity for beers that also tell a story, be it history, weather or paying homage to its local, Cleveland sports scene. For instance, GLBC released its Rally Drum Red Ale brewed in honor of the well-known Cleveland Indian bleacher-seat drummer, John J. Adams. Come September, Cleveland fans can sip on 73 Kolsch, brewed with Cleveland Browns hero Joe Thomas, an offensive linemen who played in an amazing 10,363 consecutive snaps during his 11-year career. Hence, GLBC describes the Kolsch-style beer as “A Brew Fit For An Iron Man.”

Ultimate 6er | The NFL’s Lovable Losers

December 7, 2017 |

The NFL season is in full force and several teams are competing for a playoff spot. There are some teams however that do not stand a chance even making the playoffs. Rumors are floating about key players being traded, coaches being fired, and who is in the competition for #1 pick in the draft. While several teams’ seasons have been over for weeks that isn’t an excuse to not have a good time. The best way for players to get through the next few months is with a beer that helps them forget (or remember) their team’s woes.

Weyerbacher Brewing | Dallas Sucks

October 12, 2017 |

Like most residents of southeastern Pennsylvania, I am a Philadelphia Eagles fan. If there is one truth that any good Eagles fan holds above all others, it is the fact that the Dallas Cowboys are the scourge of the NFC East and must be destroyed. There’s definitely someone over at Weyerbacher who bleeds green because they have just released the perfect beer for tailgating at Lincoln Financial Field. They even gave it the perfect name: Dallas Sucks.

Ultimate 6er | Six Atlanta Beers For the Big Game

February 2, 2017 |

If you haven’t heard, there’s a big football game on Sunday. (Dear Roger Goodell, I will adhere to licensing rights and avoid using the name of said game, but I think the game will be super!) Let’s face it, for most of us whose teams failed to make it this far, the game featuring New England and Atlanta is secondary to the food, our squares, the commercials, and of course the beer.

So, for those of you rooting for the Falcons, here are six ATL brews that pay homage to the Peach State’s Dirty Birds.

Time to Move Major Sporting Events from Indiana

March 30, 2015 | 2

It’s incredibly disturbing and ass-backwards that a column like this must be written in this day and age, but when the governor of Indiana signs a bill that could potentially allow businesses to discriminate against the LGBT community it seems you have little choice.

Champs and Chumps: NFL Playoff Picture is Coming into Focus

November 18, 2013 |

It is time, once again, to start talking about the playoffs. We are 11 weeks into the 2013-14 NFL season, and one thing is clear there are two tiers right now in the NFL. Tier 1: Seattle, New Orleans, Denver – these teams all have scary good offenses to go with really good defenses. Tier 2: everyone else in the playoff picture. – these teams have shown the ability to win (sometimes against good teams and usually at home), but are all inconsistent in big places. Read More
