With Super Bowl LII happening tonight and many of our readers (and writers, like this one) still looking for some great beers to bring to their respective parties, we have a great option for you to consider:
Why we chose it: Tonight the New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles and what is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about those two teams? AMERICA. And since we refuse to ever recommend beer flavored water like Budweiser or similar (seriously, that sad excuse for beer should only ever be used for drinking games or Florida-Georgia) we have another great option that splits the difference between these two teams that will make you want to row a boat across the Delaware River.
What this beer is all about: There are people out there who not only don’t like fruit beers, but will go to great lengths to tell you how sacrilegious a concept they believe it to be and how superior they are for only drinking “real beer.” These are among the worst beer drinkers you will ever meet in your lifetime, but at least they won’t down your entire six-pack of this delicious concoction.
Though usually the domain of brewpubs that stick foot-long wedges of watermelon into pint glasses of hefeweizen and call it a special, watermelon beer has a bit of a bad reputation in beer circles. For wheat beer fans and those who prefer refreshment over fistfuls of hops, 21st Amendment’s watermelon wheat is a smooth, malty alternative to more bitter summer beers and has the same light sweetness of a watermelon slice. At only 4.9% ABV, it’s just as enjoyable in multiple servings.
Trust us on this one, you’ll down all 6 by halftime. Grab a case.
