Let’s face it – if we’re going to have to suffer through yet another Tom Brady Super Bowl victory, then we are going to need loads of great local beer to do so (well, unless you’re a New England Patriots fan). Luckily for all of us, there are a number of breweries running tremendous beer specials this weekend to help us all transform into Atlanta Falcons and Matt Ryan fans. And finding those beer specials could be a lot of work, so why not let us handle the heavy lifting.

12 Gates Brewing Company

On Super Bowl Sunday, hit up 12 Gates for $1 off pints and $2 off growler fills. They are also offering their West Coast Style IPA in 6 pack cans for $8.99 & cases for $31.99. They have kegs to go for parties – find pricing listed here: http://12gatesbrewing.com/kegs-to-go/.

Big Ditch Brewing Company

The taproom is open 12-6pm on Sunday and has $2 off growlers and $1 off 6-pack cans, all day, excluding Deep Cut.

Buffalo Brewing Company

Hamburg Brewing Company

Taproom closes at 5pm on Super Bowl Sunday. Grab $5 growler fills of their Oat Is The New Hop Oatmeal Pale Ale (Sunday only). “Oats provide a well-rounded mouth feel while the experimental HBC 291 hops impart a pleasant spice and floral aroma,” the beers description reads.

Thin Man Brewery

Get $2 off all crowlers now until the big game, including their beloved Bliss DIPA and recently released Very Friendly IPA, a 5.5% ABV IPA made with Galaxy, Simcoe, and Mosaic hops.

So whether you’re a Patriots fan (groan), a fan of hating Tom Brady, a Falcons fan, a football fan or are just watching for the commercials, one thing is for sure – we’re all fans of beer, especially great local craft. Go team!
