There are two kinds of days during football season: game day and almost game day. Regardless, no game day is complete without great food and brew to enjoy while you watch your team.
Whether you’re ready to watch your favorite college or pro team or you’re checking all the games to keep track of your fantasy football roster, you know the importance of having the best food and drink combos on hand.
These snacks and drinks have to meet certain requirements. They must be tasty. They must be quick. They must be easy. And they must be at your fingertips when you’re ready to watch the game.
We know a few things about quick, delicious and easy, especially on game day. So we want to share some of the best food and beer pairings to help you indulge and enjoy game day your way.
Pizza & Beer, Classic Gameday Food
Pairing complementary talents is often the key to greatness. Rice and Montana. Aikman and Irvin. Brady and Gronk. Moon and Carter. Favre and Sharpe. You get the idea. Sometimes a dynamic duo is an unstoppable force. That is pizza and beer. Comfort food meets the ancient art of turning rice, barley and hops into the magic juice we call beer. Get some DiGiorno and Bud Light, add some Funyuns and we’re here for it.
DiGiorno Rising Crust Pepperoni & Miller Lite
DiGiorno Rising Crust Supreme Pizza & Coors Light
Funyuns & Bud Light
This is one of the more popular snack and drink pairings among our customers, so we’re giving it a category of its own. The people have spoken.
Bites and brews: Finger food is beer’s best friend
There’s just something satisfying about finger foods. Sure, it’s fun to fill your belly with them. But you can pop a dozen bagel dogs and you can fill a plate with a smorgasbord of different flavors.
Then you can wash it all down with a cold lager, amber or stout. The gods on Olympus ate grapes as they watched the human drama unfold. We eat Bagel Bites and pizza rolls. They would be jealous, no doubt.
Jalapeno Poppers, Mozzarella Sticks & Lager
Bagel Bites & Fat Tire Amber Ale
Mac & Cheese Bites, Soft Pretzel Bites, Pizza Rolls & Guinness Stout
Winner, winner, chicken dinner! And beer!
In the Pantheon of game day food, Buffalo chicken wings stand beside pizza as one of the titans of football food favorites. Whether you’re a bone-in purist or you just don’t want to work around the bones, we’re here with wings the way you like ‘em. Choose your favorite sauce, pair it with the bright and bitter citrus notes of a great IPA or a malty ale and get your game on.

Snacks with a side of seltzer
Chips and salsa make another classic pairing that goes with any party. But maybe you have seltzer fever, too, and feel like mixing things up and with a refreshing seltzer. Or maybe you’re down for the fall flavor of a hard cider. Well, we’ve got you covered!
Chips & Salsa and White Claw Seltzer
Chips & Queso and Blake’s Hard Cider
Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked and a Whole Lotta Hard Latte
These pairings are great at any time. But they’re especially suited for late games, whether college football on Saturday night or the pros on Sunday Night, Monday Night or Thursday Night Football. Honestly, you could try a different Ben & Jerry’s flavor every night game, every week and still not have the same one twice. And with spiked coffee, you won’t be up all night. Does it get any better?
