Wiedemann’s Fine Beer says they have 64 Bengals jerseys and counting on display at their taproom in Saint Bernard.

While the watch party that was proposed to take place at Paul Brown Stadium had to be canceled because of logistical complications, you can bet there are plenty of places around Cincinnati to catch the Bengals vs. Chiefs AFC championship on Sunday. Any bar with a few TVs will be playing the game, but diehard Who Dey-sayers — especially those looking for drink specials — might want to consider these Bengals hot spots this weekend. (This is obviously not a comprehensive list of everywhere you can get drunk/tailgate Sunday.)
