Brewers Association sends craft beer to Peyton Manning after he plugs Bud

On Sunday, the Denver Broncos took the Super Bowl 50 title, and Peyton Manning took home his second victory in football’s biggest game. Congratulations to “The Sheriff” on a game well played and a win well deserved.

And while the feat did indeed earn Mr. Manning the right to kick back with his teammates for a beer or two, the seemingly shameless plug of the world’s largest beer company — Anheuser-Busch and Budweiser — made many in craft beer land confused.

Wouldn’t he rather have a beer more fitting of his superstardom; maybe a beer that more closely represents the Bronco’s status as an underdog? That’s what we believe small and independent craft brewers represent.

So, the Brewers Association (publishers of put together a care package for the talented quarterback in hopes of helping him find another post-game refreshment.

Since Peyton happens to play in one of the most beer-centric states in the nation, we made sure to include a good number of beers that were local to Colorado in addition to a few other classic and approachable options from around the country.
