Are You There God? It's Me, Tebrew
Posted by Patrick Mullin
Bonfire Brewing out of Eagle, Colorado revealed that they are working on 'Tebrew' a high ABV barley wine that pays homage to everyone's favorite God-loving quarterback (of course, I use the term 'quarterback' loosely).
This isn't the first time an athlete has inspired a beer. In 2010, after LeBron James left Cleveland to play for the Miami Heat, Great Lakes Brewing Co. created a beer called 'Quitness', a dry-hopped IPA. It was initially so popular that the first 30 gallons sold out in 3 hours.
Are we going to see a new trend of athlete-inspired beers? If so, I have a few ideas:
Jared Allen 69 Barley Wine - With a 14% ABV that's sure to get you a DUI after just one bottle!
Nate Robinson Double IPA - Sold in 7 ounce bottles, this beer would have the slogan "Small in size, big on hops."
GSP ESB - Hey, you'd be Extra Bitter too if you missed out on a title match thanks to a torn ACL..
Sharapova Stout - Russian, with fantastic body and mouthfeel.
And of course, in honor of our own Kansas City Chiefs, Stanzi Light - Because if you drink anything other than American Light Lager, you're a terrorist foreigner. 'Merica.
Tebrew is only available in Bonfire Brewing's tap room, so unless you are planning a trip to Eagle anytime soon, don't expect to get your hands on any.
