Super Bowl XLVII Beverage Wins

It’s almost here, that magic time of the year where sports gladiators battle for the big win, while we all watch in awe, most of us intoxicated and anticipating the next round of fiesta style finger-foods, and the all important Super Bowl Commercials. The most expensive advertisements will also battle for our attention, our laughter, and our ability to make these things go viral the next day when we all call in sick to work.

Because we love our customers, we refuse to insult by offering only beer during Super Bowl XLVII, so we’ve come up with a beverage playbook that will ensure your celebration(s) are entertaining, delicious and successful. Amity Wine & Spirit, Co. recommends celebrating safely at home, or with friends / family. Save time, save money by getting your party supplies now before the big game… No matter where you go, be sure to lock down a designated driver.

The beer guys couldn’t narrow it down to just a few recommendations for Pre Game (basically the entire day, up until the Super Bowl actually starts in the early evening), so we will simply suggest you stop in the store to see our massive selection of beer, craft beers, specialty beers, limited production beers, seasonal beers, and even some interesting new ones to choose from. There’s always 23oz sippers to try and enjoy, including amazing closeout pricing on craft brews, and other pricing specials for your favorites. Final Word: Too many choices for pre-game, so go with your instinct. Grab the first few that captivate your attention.

That’s perfectly alright with us, because we know what to do with all the extra time you’ll save. Have you tried a fruit beer? A wonderful sipper for the wide selection of foods and platters available during Super Bowl celebrations.

Lindeman’s Lambic – (all flavors) – 750ml – $10.49 – The most traditional of the fruit lambics are kriek (cherry) and framboise (raspberry). In modern times, peaches (peche), blackcurrants (cassis), grapes, as well as more exotic fruits are used. More commonly, lambics are sweetened to cut the intense acidity.

  • 2011 Saint M Reisling$11.99 – The 2011 St. M Riesling is bright, with the delicate peach aroma and stony minerality that is typical of the weathered sandstone soils found in the Pfalz region.

A charming and versatile Riesling from an excellent, extremely satisfying vintage.

Dark, deep ruby colored with an intense bouquet and flavor of black cherries, black pepper, cinnamon, plums, vanilla and toasted oak.
