Well if you you’re able to get to the 21A out here in San Francisco and can join us to for today’s big game you’re in for a treat as it’s Strong Beer Month. But, if you can’t make out here and you happen to be in an area where you can find our beer I would suggest a Bitter American. It’s the perfect beer to drink while you are watching today’s game and when your team is not on the field. It’s also a mere 4.4% abv and won’t fill you up. I like to call it an IPA session beer. Ok, enough of plugging the beer. When I was a kid growing up, my Mom would make Super Nachos, the ultimate Super Bowl dip. Give it a try as it’s simple and perfect with Bitter American, yes another plug. Enjoy and I hope your team wins today. Don’t be bitter, drink a craft beer.
