With the NFL conference championship games set for this weekend, I thought it would be a perfect time to produce my second series of beer battle predictions.
I did this back in December for the five BCS games and now turn the spotlight on the pros.
The way it works is I pick a locally made beer from the cities involved—or at least nearby cities. The battle of suds combines with football analysis for a potent concoction.
The first game Sunday will see the upset-minded Baltimore Ravens traveling to Foxborough to take on the very dangerous Patriots. The second game sees the surging New York Giants visiting San Francisco to play the feel-good-favorite 49ers.
Great football is complemented by amazing beer, and I am here to bridge the two worlds. This weekend will be filled with great competition, so stay away from boring brews.
This is the beer lover’s guide to the conference championship games.
