BEER OF THE GAME

Since we're hosting a team from Chicago, it's only fitting to adopt a beer from the Windy City as our Beer of the Game. Let's pass on Goose Island, and we'll skip Old Style, too (before you tell me: I know, it's brewed in Wisconsin, but the only place I've seen people drink it is Chicago), and go with Daisy Cutter Pale Ale from Half Acre Brewery.

Enjoy the game, and bring me home a winner.
