Everyone’s favorite day of delicious appetizers, cold beer and football is coming quick. Even if you’re more interested in the commercials than the game, you can’t disagree that good food is exactly what a great Super Bowl Sunday needs. Taft’s Ale House has you covered. From 5-8 p.m. on Jan. 27, Taft’s will be hosting a one-night-only pairing to inspire that Sunday night food coma.
With your $25 ticket, you’ll receive a flight of 5 different beers, each “perfectly paired” with a game-day appetizer.
Some standouts from the menu: a spicy shrimp wonton prepared with a Sriracha soy sesame marinade and served with a sweet chili crisp sauce, paired with Cold Boy Lager; and tri-cooked wings — chicken wings that are smoked, fried, then grilled, covered in orange ginger sauce alongside celery and bleu cheese, paired with Sticky Icky IPA.
The tickets are divided into three 1-hour time slots to comply with social distancing, so don’t sweat over the possibility of a crammed crowd. If you’re coming early or staying later, show the host your ticket and get your wristband.
While there are recommended beers for each appetizer, it is a self-guided pairing. When you come in, you’ll be handed a pairing worksheet, brews and appetizers. You can take “as little or as much time as you want exploring and comparing flavors.”
Each attendee will also receive a wristband to enjoy $1 off pints for the day of the Super Bowl.
