The 2017 NFL season is about to come to an end. Seventeen weeks of the regular season and three playoff rounds are officially in the books. Of the 32 teams in the NFL, only two remain: the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. If you’re throwing a Super Bowl party this year, you might want to choose food and drinks to pay homage to the NFC and AFC champions. Perhaps something from a fine selection of breweries?
The Boston-area (the Patriots play in Foxboro, Massachusetts) is famous for a variety of food, including clam chowder, Boston baked beans, cranberries, and lobster. Philadelphia, on the other hand, is known for the beloved cheesesteak, soft pretzels, and roast pork sandwiches. So, after you’ve decided on a few dishes to celebrate the teams, what do you wash it all down with?
You can go ahead and buy your favorite local beer (or your tried-and-true domestic brew). But, you probably drink that while watching every regular season game. Instead, consider continuing the food theme and serving some of the best suds from the Philadelphia and Boston-areas. Both cities are well-known for their brewing prowess, touting countless beloved breweries. A few of our favorites below.
