The Sochi Winter Olympics are underway, so it’s time to start thinking about who’s going to win which events. The Olympics are not only about rooting on our own nation’s athlete’s, but also coming together and finding common ground between countries. So why not celebrate other’s wins as well by cracking open a beer with which to toast the gold medalists? We’ve got some suggestions on what to use to toast as each country collects medals.
United States- Budweiser: They are, after all, the official beer sponsor of the U.S. team.
Germany – Erdinger: This exclusively wheat beer brewery offers a taste of its country of origin in every mouthful.
Belgium – Leffe: You’ve got nine great choices to choose from here, so you can’t go wrong.
Denmark – Carlsberg: Started in 1847, this brewery makes a pale lager that’s as refreshing as it is standard.
England – Fullers: Fuller’s is a staple in England, and for good reason. London Pride, ESB and their London Porter are all good choices.
Japan – Kirin: Another old brewery out of Tokyo, they’ve got a pale ale that is ‘number one!’
Ireland – O’Hara’s: An Irish classic, with a stout, Irish red and more than a handful of other great brews.
Here’s to safe and well-played games!
