Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Thursday, September 19 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
There’s Always More To Pour
As you may expect from our very own CenturyLink Field, the home of the Seattle Seahawks tops the list with the largest selection of beer and wine amongst all 31 NFL stadiums. I find this to be quite fitting for our region, as the Pacific Northwest is commonly known for its beer scene (Shout out to all the hops out there).
Foodandwine.com recently published an article in which they highlighted the diversity of beer and wine offerings at NFL stadiums. The monthly magazine worked with the Las Vegas-based specialists Hangover Heaven to dig up the complete beer and wine offerings of all 31 stadiums across the League (although they had trouble finding readily accessible data from 10 of the stadiums).
“The largest selection, by far, came in Seattle, where the Seahawks’ CenturyLink Field was found to sell 139 different beers and wines, including 48 red wines, 21 whites, six roses, four sparklers, 30 mostly-local craft beers, and 30 macro beers,” read the Food & Wine article.
Coincidentally, second on the list was the New Orleans Saints. Let me just repeat that one more time—second on the list. New Orleans Saints. I think you get where I’m going with that.
“Drink options at NFL games have changed significantly over the past generation—and if you can’t find a drink you like, no matter who your home team is, you may simply want to keep looking… especially if you’re a Seahawks fan.”
