Watch the Pro Bowl at Tailgate Social

a close up of food


The NFL Pro Bowl is coming to Vegas February 2nd -5th! If you’re not able to watch it in person, then the next best play is to watch the Pro Bowl at Tailgate Social! This year the Pro Bowl will have a fun new format, featuring a flag football game as the main event and new skills competitions like a water balloon toss, dodgeball tournament, and a Longest Drive golfing contest. Adding mayhem to the melee is the Manning Brothers–Peyton and Eli–who will be coaching the AFC and NFC teams, respectively. Below are Tailgate Social’s recommended beer choices for the AFC and NFC teams, also respectively.


Beer Name: Elysian Contact Haze

From: Chico, California

Brewery: Sierra Nevada

Style: American IPA

ABV: 6.7%

IBU: 39

Pairs Best With: Bacon Cheddar Tater Tots

Why It Slaps: This beer has a light to medium body and is not overpowering when it comes to hoppiness. It has some fruity undertones of guava, raspberry, citrus, passion fruit, and currant that gives a bit of a boost through the nose.

Review: “I like this beer because it looks tough since it’s an IPA but it’s not that strong. Sort of like me, in this jersey, watching football, instead of playing it.”



Beer Name: Shocktop

From: Fort Collins, Colorado

Brewery: Anheuser-Busch

Style: Belgian White

ABV: 5.2%

IBU: 10

Pairs Best With: Warm Pretzel Bites

Why It Slaps: This beer is zesty. It’s brewed with actual orange, lemon, and lime peels for an authentic citrus kick. It started off being brewed at a small brewery in Colorado under the name “Spring Heat Spiced Wheat,” before it got quite literally drafted by Anheuser-Busch. So, it was good enough to go Pro.

Review: “I chose Shocktop to drink for the NFC because of the name: I will literally be shocked if the NFC comes out on top in the Pro Bowl.”
