Brooklyn Brewery vs. Anchor Brewing a Bet for the NFC Championship

19 January 2012

imageLooks like another friendly craft beer bet on the NFC Championship game between John Dannerbeck of Anchor Brewing and Steve Hindy of Brooklyn Brewery.  Given the bet that the losing brewery will serve the other brewery’s beer & outfit their staff in the other brewery’s clothing, I plan to tune into the 49ers vs. Giants game.  For the full story…

Bicoastal Battle For The NFC Championship

    (JAN 19)--Two of the nation’s leading craft brewers are betting that their hometown team will win the National Football Conference game this Sunday.



John Dannerbeck, president of Anchor Brewing Co. of San Francisco, and Steve Hindy, president of Brooklyn Brewery in New York, said Thursday they will pour the other brewery’s beer and outfit their brewery tour staff in jerseys from the opposing team for a week if their team loses the title game in San Francisco on Sunday.



The brewery chiefs will wear the jerseys of shame as well.


“We are very confident that the 49ers will come through for us and we will not have to suffer this humiliation,” said Dannerbeck. “We beat the Giants earlier this year, and I am sure we will do it again.”

“The Giants have come together in an impressive way since the post-season commenced,” said Hindy. “We think Eli Manning and his team are going to avenge that earlier loss and move on to the Super Bowl.”

What are the chances that the 49ers win and the Patriots win and we have the same showdown. Boston beer co vs Anchor? Not bloody likely? That would be awesome considering what went down this year between the two.
