A funny thing happens to people each autumn. They start blocking out huge chunks of time on their weekend schedules, often traveling many miles to commune with others who share their passion for a certain sport. 

You’d be correct in guessing that the sport is football, and the communal activity is tailgating. And because beer was made for tailgating, Dustin Leigh, beer manager at Colonial Wines & Spirits, has selected some outstanding "Most Valuable Beer" prospects for your next ‘gate.


Ozark Beer Company Ozark Lager 

ABV: 5% | Type: Lager

"A delicious, easy drinking lager that is perfect for the long tailgate days. Crisp clean and refreshing brew from one of our great in-state breweries."


Montucky Cold Snacks Lager

ABV: 4.1% | Type: Lager

"Sometimes a six or 12 pack is not enough for the tailgate party. Montucky Cold Snacks is available in a 30 pack for sharing with your football loving guests. This is a lager that has good flavor and goes well with all kinds of tailgating foods."


Pacifico Cerveza Clara

ABV: 4.4% Type: Mexican Lager

"If you’re a fan of Mexican lagers, Pacifico is right up your alley. It’s a light Mexican lager with a flavor that punches above most of its peers. Try it with cheese dip, hot links or any spicy football food."


Yuengling Flight 

ABV: 4.2% Type: Light Lager

"Don’t let calories turn you away from enjoying beer at the tailgate. Yuengling has you covered with Yuengling Flight. At only 95 calories and 2.6 carbs, it’s an ideal super light beer."


College or pro, no matter who your favorite team is, your tailgate will be a smash with any of these brews. Enjoy!
