#SuperBowl – PorchDrinking.com
Super Bowl Sunday is one of my favorite days of the year. My friends and I gather for an evening of celebration and friendly competition: the annual Dip Party. The football plays on mute for any plus ones who care about sports, and the game is only un-muted for the half-time show. Everyone attending brings a homemade dip and dunker, with first, second, and third place prizes based on a popular vote.
From sweet to savory, nostalgic classics to fresh takes, the party is all about the dip — a quintessential snack at any gathering. And as dip is the perfect party food, beer is an obvious beverage choice. This is especially true on Super Bowl Sunday when the industry is inundated with heightened awareness for beer’s biggest players. Whether enjoying a small spread or hosting a dip feast of your own, below are fail-safe beer pairings for some classic party dips.
Dynasties are a thing of wonder. The Romanov Dynasty, the Ming Dynasty, the Brady-Belichick Dynasty–the list goes on.
For the New England Patriots, Super Bowl LIII marks their ninth appearance since 2002, their fourth in five years, and their third straight. For fans of the Patriots, it’s hard to not feel spoiled by the amount of championships in the 21st century. It’s also hard to not feel spoiled by the amazing craft beer the region has to offer. For fans of all the other 31 NFL teams, well… does the word “annoyed” come to mind?
I was 8 when the Patriots won their first Super Bowl. So, being a Massachusetts-native, it felt only fitting for me to honor yet another Super Bowl appearance for the Patriots. Patriots fans, this Ultimate 6er is for you.
It’s time once again for PorchDrinking’s 2019 Super Bowl Bingo Cards for Super Bowl 53. In addition to the entertainment of seeing who can inhale the most combinations of cheese dips in one sitting, we’ve created bingo boards for your party-goers’ enjoyment. Each square should be crossed off as they occur. And sure, since this is PorchDrinking, take a drink each time you cross off a square.
It has been decided. The two top football teams in the country will face off in Super Bowl LII in less than two weeks. I for one am ecstatic. Born and raised in Massachusetts, Boston sports were etched into my being, and part of that grouping is the most hated team in the nation, the New England Patriots. They will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles in a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIX 13 years ago.
But we’re not here to discuss odds; we’re here to discuss beer. Leave those domestic macro beers on the shelf this year and use this guide to point you in the direction of some beers that are perfectly suited for an evening of championship football.

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.
As Atlanta heats up in advance of this Sunday’s big match-up in Houston, everyone in the city is catching Falcons Fever. The affectionately nicknamed Dirty Birds head to the game for only the second time in the storied 51-year history of the Big Game and the city is convinced this is the year the Falcons will bring the iconic Lombardi Trophy home.
As Chiefs fans continue to complain about officiating and Cowboys fans wait yet “another year,” it is time for the rest of the country to gear-up for the NFL Championship games. The Green Bay Packers take their cheese-loving selves to Atlanta to face the “Dirty Bird” Falcons while the Steelers will be waving their terrible towels at Gillette Stadium against the Patriots. To celebrate the championship games I have built the Ultimate 6er showcasing some of the best beers that represent these sports town cities. Included are two brews that will keep us looking forward to the Super Bowl and into next season.
The Weekly Growler Fill is moving to Tuesdays… just kidding. The real story is that the Super Bowl, and many beers, got the best of me. Living in Denver ain’t too shabby right about now, although today seemed unnecessarily long. Hence, you’re getting the Growler a day late. To all of my concerned fans that flooded my inbox – do not fret. We still have tons of groundbreaking craft beer news coming your way. This week, I’m bringing you stories of beer releases, expanded distribution and trailblazing grocery store chains.

It’s time once again for PorchDrinking’s 2016 Super Bowl 50 Bingo Boards. As a way to make your Super Bowl watch party a little more interactive aside from seeing who can inhale the most combinations of cheese dips in one sitting, we’ve created bingo boards for your party-goers’ participation. Each square should be crossed off as they occur. And sure since this is PorchDrinking, take a drink each time you cross off a square. And for added measure down your entire beer when Anheuser-Busch does air this year’s iteration attacking peach pumpkin pale ales because we know it’s gonna happen anyway. Go Broncos!
As you’ve likely discovered by now, we’re not your average craft beer blog. And as such, we thought we’d take a bit of a different approach to this weekend’s Super Bowl by asking what Sunday’s outcome would be if craft beer settled Super Bowl XLIX.
Forces from the East and West collide this weekend to decide who will be this year’s indomitable NFL team. Whilst the cacophony of smashing helmets and roaring crowds can be enthralling, here at PorchDrinking we pay homage to the more refined sounds from these coastal regions. So sit back and tip back a cold one to the coastal melodies of this super awesome, Super Bowl playlist.
What is the one thing everyone does on NFL Sunday? Pig out, of course. No matter what team you’re rooting for, I’m sure you’ll be shoveling food and beer into your pie hole while your eyes are glued to the TV. To honor this feast of snacks, I’m bringing you a recipe for some epic sliders. First, you will make a hoppy orange pulled pork with Rebel IPA to properly perfume your house before the party. Next, you will make a creamy peanut coleslaw so the pulled pork can have a crunchy friend in this tiny sandwich. Then… sausage. Because a ‘pig out’ slider clearly needs extreme amounts of pork. Finally, you will pile it all up on a Hawaiian sweet roll because they are the best and the only real way to properly transport this much pork into your gullet. Good luck to all the teams and may the pork be with you.
NFL Sunday is always a wonderful time to get together with friends while enjoying delicious food and beer. Whether a football fan or not, people love an excuse to celebrate. To be honest, I like watching football, but I am no die-hard fan and it would not be as much fun without everything that comes along with it 🙂
