With the NHL playoffs coming to close soon and the offseason fastly approaching, we all need something fun to get through the summer with. So, I’m introducing Top Shelf Pours, a series that pairs hockey teams with a beer, a mixed drink, and a wine. Now I know not every hockey fan drinks, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. But this is for the fans who do like to drink. Maybe it’ll help them try something new next time they go to a game.
Without further ado, here is Top Shelf Pours for the Buffalo Sabres!
One beer: Resurgence Brewing Company Imperial Milk Stout. I have to be honest, I picked Resurgence because of the name; the Sabres were in last place and need a resurgence for next season. It’s a terrible pun, I know, but I’m also a fan of stouts and their milk stout is just what any fan needs during a game. According to their website, it features flavors of milk chocolate, caramel, and toffee, which is exactly what a fan needs to stop the team from leaving a bad taste in their mouth.
One mixed drink: A vodka shot. Because the fans of the Sabres seriously need something to forget.
One wine: White Girl Rosé. Now before you click out of the page, hear me out. White Girl Rose is the perfect wine to go with greasy food; I know from experience. It’s sweet and almost tastes like lemonade, so it’s the perfect companion to wash down the fries you’re eating. Maybe throw some ice in the cup so it’s chilled, and you’re good to go. Plus, who doesn’t love a good rosé?
Starting from the bottom of the league and ending at the top, this is the first in our Top Shelf Pours series. Do you agree with our choices? What would you have chosen? Let us know by tweeting us: @puckitupblog.
