Big game brews

We all know what getting together to watch the big game is truly about: Throwing better parties than your friends. And of course, the beer! Stock the old standbys but add a little twist to your party drinks menu this game season and try one of these lesser known but still great beers. Wine pairings and wine tastings get all the talk, but for the big game it's time to score with an international beer pairing. These 10 best beers are great conversation starters, especially for those needing a break from the game!

New Holland Full Circle

Light, crisp, refreshing like a lager, but with the subtle complexities of an ale. Super easy-to-drink and a good transition beer for those wanting to branch out from the Budweisers of the world to the world of craft brewing.

Sam Adams Winter Lager

What? Sam Adams? Yes. This is good – and a rare, limited-availability find so stock up while you can!

Rogue Brewing Co.'s St. Rogue Dry-Hopped Red

Fruity beer? Really? Yes. This ale is slamming with fruity, floral hoppy bitterness yet is incredibly, surprisingly balanced.

Allagash White

People who like Blue Moon will like this brew. It's a bit more spiced and they can be happy that it's not made from a big-name brewer.

Zywiec Lager

Zywiec is a brewery born in history. It was originally opened in Poland in the 1800s by Archduke Albert, Duke of Teschen. As for the lager, it's everything one could want in a beer: Clear, light, cold, and yet packs a punch with hints of grain and hops mixed together in a marriage of beer goodness.
