How Do You Honor Brett Favre? With Beer, Of Course

Have you ever had trouble deciding on what beer to drink? Well lucky for you, Brett Favre is here to make your decision harder. Because why should he be the only one who has trouble making decisions? Badger State Brewery is producing a special Brett Favre tribute beer for sale this month in Wisconsin called “4ward pass“, which is clever. But I guess “Interceptabeer” would have been too long to fit on the label.

“4ward Pass is a 7% ABV India Pale Ale brewed with Cajun spices and “Warrior” hops reflecting the quarterback’s grit and tenacity as well as his legacy.”

When I think about what I want in a beer, that’s exactly what I think of … Jambalaya flavored grit. It sounds delicious just saying it. And if you want to grab a case, be nimble (more nimble than Favre ever was in the pocket, at least). Because only 44 cases will be available to the Northeastern Wisconsin market on November 18th. So don’t think too long before buying one, or you’ll end up with the Jets like Favre did.

(P.S. Despite my obvious snark, it’s actually very nice for Favre to have a beer named after him, even though it is made clear that neither Favre nor the Packers endorse or are affiliated with the beer. The Favre beer is in conjunction with Favre entering the Packers ring of honor the following week. So it seems that Wisconsin has forgiven Favre and welcomes him back with tenacious cajun flavored beer.)
