The Green Bay Packers have proven that Brett Favre may now be a name of the past as they will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday in Super Bowl XLV.
Now, if only the weather will hold out! Both teams are practicing in their back-up indoor facilities while the Dallas-area slowly unfreezes this week. Cowboy Stadium’s retractable roof will remain closed for the game, but temperatures are supposed to be back to their normal average with a high of almost 60 degrees on Sunday.
With a stadium capacity of 105,000, Dallas is expecting a packed weekend, including a craft beer scene that is set to impress the thirsty fans. With hot spots including, The Ginger Man, The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, and more than ten breweries and brewpubs in the Dallas area, there is plenty to look forward to while waiting for the big game!
Ronnie Crocker, from MySanAntonio.com, shares the inside scoop with all of you lucky enough to be visiting Dallas this weekend in “Craft beers Get the Super Bowl Treatment.”
Craft Beer to be Poured at the White House Super Bowl Party
Don’t worry if you’re not in Dallas for the weekend, there are events taking place all over the country. Even the White House Super Bowl party will feature craft beer from Hinterland Brewery of Green Bay, WI. And now, a grassroots effort to have beer from East End Brewing of Pittsburgh at the party has begun. It’s only fair! Follow their efforts on Facebook and Twitter.
Wherever you are on Sunday, enjoy the game, stay warm, and don’t forget to brave the weather and explore all that America’s craft breweries, beer bars and brewpubs have to offer!
