Super Bowl Food Pairings

Around 100,000,000 people will be watching the Super Bowl this Sunday… Will you be one of them? Whether you’re into the game, the commercials, or hanging with your friends and family, the chances are pretty good that you’ll also be enjoying a tasty assortment of appetizers and snacks. We’ve rounded up a handful of our favorites and paired them with some of our best-loved canned beers!

citra and wings

Hot Wings & DDH Citra IPA

Is it even the Super Bowl if you’re not eating wings while watching? Whether you’re doing traditional, boneless, or even a buffalo chicken dip (YUM), our DDH Citra IPA has the perfect balance of citrus zing and dry-hopped flavor to stand up to those spicy, finger-licking sauces.

nachos and amarilloish

Nachos & Amarillo-ish IPA

The thing about nachos is, you can make them a million different ways. BBQ pork, seasoned ground beef, vegetarian, chicken, seared tuna… Smokey, spicy, savory, or even sweet. For them to be nachos, however, they have to have a base of crunchy chips and a number of delicious toppings with plenty of tastes and textures. Our Amarillo-ish has strong hop flavor with enough bite to cut through any variety of nacho flavors.

pretzel and hefe

Soft Pretzels & Bavarian Hefeweizen

Right? Bavarian-style pretzels with bavarian-style beer… In addition to the tradition, both offer comforting bready flavors without being too heavy or over-powering.

travs and lager

Toasted Ravioli & Southern German Lager

One of our beloved area specialties, toasted ravioli is a perfect game-day food. They’re easy to hold and eat, crispy edges with a soft pillow of breaded pasta and seasoned meat, dippable, and filling. With the Italian seasonings, bread crumbs, and accompanying marinara sauce, you’ll want a beer that is refreshing but not weak. We think our Southern German Lager is the perfect pairing!

popcorn and cinnamon stout

Popcorn & Cinnamon Maple Stout

If you like your beers dark and filling, you might want a lighter snack to pair it with. Popcorn is light and crunchy, addictive, and can be as sweet or as salty as you like. Regardless of where you fall on the popcorn seasoning spectrum, our Cinnamon Maple Stout has the body and flavor to compliment it.
