The most unprecedented rivalry between the Broncos and Seahawks is going down this Sunday evening, so a celebration is clearly in order. And whether or not you’re a team groupie, it’s evident that after 30 seconds into the first quarter, football fans ultimately value a cold beer over game stats. A shandy provides the perfect balance between the classic American brew and a lighter, citrus sip that pleases us ladies in the room. This beer cocktail will have the whole crowd cheering before the halftime performers even take stage!

    This sounds yummy! What brand of pale ale do you suggest? Where I live we have a limited selection, but I want to make this for Super Bowl Sunday!

      Hi Taylor! I found a hoppy bottle of Prairie pale ale at my Whole Foods, but you could always go with a popular label like Sierra Nevada! Enjoy.

    This looks delicious! In Memphis, we have a great pale ale from High Cotton Brewery that makes an awesome shandy.
