Best Beers to Enjoy During Football Season

Best Beers to Enjoy During Football Season

Football season is finally upon us. Whether you prefer a sports bar or the comfort of your own home, watching football is so much better when you have a cold beer in your hand. With that in mind, here are six crushable beers to drink during the game.

21st Amendment Tasty IPA

American IPA, 6.8% ABV
San Leandro, California
For those looking for some hoppy goodness this football season, reach for Tasty IPA, a seasonal brew from 21st Amendment Brewery. Crack open a can and enjoy bright fresh flavors and aromas of hops, tropical stone fruits, pine and a hint of spiciness.

Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin

Pumpkin Beer, 5% ABV
Brooklyn, New York
It wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t include a pumpkin beer on this list. I know, how basic. That said, Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin is a great beer. Hundreds of pounds of pumpkins are blended into the mash of each batch, creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, biscuity malt center and crisp finish.

Miller Lite

American Light Lager, 4.2% ABV
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
This is an obvious choice for our list. Since 1975, Miller Lite has dominated the American light beer category. It tastes great, and at only 96 calories, it’s perfect for those watching their waistline. Not to mention it pairs nicely with chicken wings, pizza and breadsticks.

Pabst Blue Ribbon Easy

American Light Lager, 3.8% ABV
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Pabst Blue Ribbon Easy is a lighter version of the PBR you know and love. Only the finest hops and grains have been used to create this most sessionable brew. PBR Easy lands at 110 calories per serving, making it one of the lowest calorie beers on this list.

Samuel Adams Octoberfest

Märzen, 5.3% ABV
Boston, Massachusetts
It wouldn't be a football beer list without including an Octoberfest! And Sam Adams Octoberfest has the same great taste year after year. This classic style blends hearty malts for a deep, smooth flavor with notes of caramel, creating a brew that’s perfect for the fall season.

Yuengling Lager

American Amber Lager, 4.4% ABV
Pottsville, Pennsylvania
Another beer that had to be on this list is Yuengling Lager. Famous for its rich amber color and medium-bodied flavor, this brew delivers a well-balanced taste with a very distinct malt character. This iconic American lager is a staple at any tailgate in Upstate New York.
