If you're fave NBA or NHL team is still in the finals, then we've got the best beer pairings for you. Just about any beer would probably be good during a pro basketball or hockey playoff game (especially home brew), but these should be readily available for the homers and fun to seek out for this special occasion.
We also review some beer pairings for NBA & NHL teams from Victoria Pratt of Porchdrinking.com, Lee Breslouer of Thrillist, a Milwaukee Bucks drinking game from Matt Mueller of onmilwaukee.com, a NHL Drinking Game from Walter Gawron of drinkinggamezone.com and some chicken wing marinades from Marshall Ottina sportsbarmarketing.com.
All while drinking and reviewing our own NBA BEER PAIRINGS:
- Schlitz - pairs with Milwaukee Bucks
- Firestone Walker Union Jack IPS - Golden State Warriors
- LaBott’s Blue Canadian Pilsner - Toronto Raptors
- Pig Minds Always the Hardway (“Penny Hardaway”) And our NHL BEER PAIRINGS:
- Sam Adams Summer Ale - Boston Bruins
- Schlafly Northeast IPA - St. Louis Blues
- Anchor Steam - San Jose Sharks
- Pig Minds Sweep the Leg
Plus, we review some beer industry employment statistics recently released from a Brewbound study: reporting that the US Beer Industry Supports +2 Million Jobs, and U.S. beer companies and wholesalers employ more than 200,000 American workers. Each of those jobs creates 31 additional full-time equivalent jobs in adjacent industries.
Finally, we added a few short but sweet sound clips from a hot rockband called Silvertide - good music for your summer brewing efforts, for sure.
