This weekend is one of the great gathering days on the calendar in the United States. Families and friends come together and congregate around the television to watch four-plus hours of advertisements, football and halftime shows.
Come Sunday the American public will fret over which number they have in the five-dollar-per-square house pool, how many cocktail franks to put in the oven, and which beer to stock the fridge with. The very same thing is also happening over at the White House. (Okay, maybe not the pool) The guest list is set, the invites out, and even the beer is picked.
According to reports, the President has chosen a few cases of a Wisconsin beer. Both the Pale Ale and Amber Ale from the Hinterland Brewery in Green Bay have been shipped from the brewhouse directly to the White House. Let’s be honest, being able to have a “few cases” shipped straight from a brewery half-way across the nation to your Super Bowl Party must be high on the list of great presidential perks.
Just in case you care, and there is no reason you should, I am going with the President’s apparent pick and taking the Packers. Enjoy the game!
