Fantasy football fans, consider your draft season drinking game changed: Buffalo Wild Wings announced partnerships with craft breweries around the nation for a series of special football-themed beers.
According to a press release, the five football-themed brews include: Founders 3rd and Lager (available in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin); Harpoon Simcoe the Underdog Pale Ale (available in Connecticut, Washington, D.C., Delaware, Kentucky, Massachusettes, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, and West Virginia); SweetWater Low Hanging Fruit (available in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee); Deschutes Fantasy Football League India Pale Lager (available in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Minnesota, North Dakota, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, and Washington); and Odell Draft Party Milkshake IPA (available in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Texas, and Wyoming).
A sixth beer, Moab Grapefruit Pale Ale, will also be available in Utah, according to the Buffalo Wild Wings website.
The new brews are part of Buffalo Wild Wings’ ongoing B-Dubs Brew Series, which launched in February. This is the first time Buffalo Wild Wings’ partner breweries have created new beers for fantasy football season, but it’s not the first time B-Dubs showed up on our craft beer radar in recent weeks.
Last month, the restaurant announced a new B-Dubs Express location with a self-serve beer wall. Also in July, the Brewers Association announced Buffalo Wild Wings will serve as an official sponsor of this year’s Great American Beer Festival (GABF), one of the largest beer festivals in the country. As part of the deal, B-Dubs will have its own branded pop-up sports bar at GABF.
