The Big Game is coming up. This Sunday, in fact. The Carolina Panthers take on the Denver Broncos, and regardless of which team you’re rooting for, you need the drinks to fuel the party. Here are three suggestions for every palate.
Grab a growler. These beer-toting jugs are a great option if you love draft craft beer. We have approximately 20 Brew Stop growler filling stations across the state ready to fill your bottles with something delicious. Check out our locations here.
Mix 6. Mix and match your favorite beers for a variety of flavors to get you through the entire game. Throw in a lager, an IPA and something deliciously sessionable to get you started.
Shop smart. Use this offer next time you’re in ABC–buy one 18-pack Budweiser, get the second 40% off.
The white. Graham Beck The Game Reserve Chardonnay is zesty, yet elegant. It’s a full-flavored, golden-hued bottle of Big Game perfection. No other white wine would do for the 50th anniversary of an event such as this. Plus, it goes well with chicken wings, and it’s only $13.
The red. Pick up a bottle or two of Valeckenberg Dornfelder for a red that goes nicely with meat and cheese–I’m willing to bet you have both in your spread. Blackberry, currant and vanilla envelop your palate with this rich, fruity, $10, German wine.
The sparkling. For the victory, of course. Dominio de la Peseta Cava is wallet-friendly and beyond delicious. Plus, if you pop it open before the end of the game, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find this $10 Spanish sparkler goes well with just about everything on your menu, from pigs-in-a-blanket to chips and salsa.
The vodka. One of the best deals you can find for a crowd of thirsty tailgaters comes in the form of vodka. Make a big batch cocktail (ideas here!) for your friends with V5, a 5x distilled, smooth-drinking vodka.
The bourbon. Zackariah Harris is a budget-friendly bourbon that’s perfect for tailgating. Sip this spirit straight or mix it in a bourbon cocktail.
The coupon. Remember our advice to shop smart when it comes to beer? Well, good news: We’ve got a pretty awesome coupon for spirits (and wines) too. Save $5 on your wine or spirits purchase of $30+. Details and the coupon can be found here.
Cheers to a solid weekend of tailgating!
