You can’t talk about a Super Bowl party without talking about BEER! For today’s post, we went right to the experts. We asked our friends at Outer Light Brewing Company in Groton, our host venue for our February 16th Pop Up Dinner (some seats still available!), for some input and Tyler Cox, their Brewmaster, sent in the following phenomenal piece. Cheers!
Howdy folks. Tyler Cox here, Brewmaster for Outer Light Brewing Company in Groton, CT.
Unless you’ve been living with your head in a keg, you’ve probably heard that the Super Bowl takes place Sunday night. The Super Bowl is the most watched television show in the history of US television. Last year, more than 114 million people tuned in. That’s over a third of the US population!
Sports fan or not, the Super Bowl makes for a great excuse to throw a party. When you’re serving up delectable dishes for your friends, make sure you’ve got the right beers to pair with them. A proper pairing enhances the taste of both the food and the beers and may highlight subtle flavors that you’d never noticed. Plus, it’s fun to geek out a little, and having fun is the whole point of parties, right?
Here are a few ideas for your festive day, from the mind of a guy who knows a little something about beer.
