There ain’t nothing better than an ice cold beer while cheering on your favorite team surrounded by 75,000 other fans.
Literally, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
When I think of football fans, I typically assume the beer of choice is Busch Light, Bud Light, Miller Lite… are you seeing a pattern here?
However, according to USA Today,you won’t find very many of those American classics in NFL Stadiums around the country. Using data collected from Untappd, an app that allows beer drinkers to check in at a certain location and document the kind of beer they’re drinking, this list full of craft beers, IPAs and a bunch of other horse shit that nobody outside of the owner’s box is drinking.
I call bullshit… but also, I call the data a piss poor representation of NFL fandom.
Why? Because the dude crushing Miller Lites at the tailgate, and a dozen more inside the gate, isn’t taking his eye off the game so he can log what kind of beer he is drinking into an app.
You know who is? The suit and tie, buzzkill beer snob that doesn’t even want to be there, but got free tickets because his brother-in-law is an investment banker who won them in a company raffle and couldn’t make it (and fuck that guy).
So your list is complete dogshit with a few notable exceptions (lookin’ at you Buffalo Bills).
But just for fun, let’s take a look…
