Are you ready for some football? I – can’t – hear – you! ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!? As I’m sure you know, the Seattle Seahawks‘ home opener is this Thursday the 4th. Football fans around the Sound and around the nation have been eagerly awaiting this day and the start of the Seahawks’ march towards another Superbowl victory.
Also making its return on Thursday the 4th is the beer formerly known as ‘Skittles 12th Man IPA’. As you probably know, both Skittles candy and Texas A&M didn’t think too highly of that name so the brewer, Foggy Noggin Brewing, decided to change its name to Cease & Desist IPA; very clever.
Here is a bit more information from Foggy Noggin Brewing:
Cease & Desist IPA (formerly known as 12th Man Skittles IPA) was so popular last year we will be brewing this all season long. Each game, we will have a limited # of 1/6BBL kegs on tap.
We are releasing this beer into the market at 3 locations (HopVine Pub, Latona Pub and Fiddler’s Inn) this Thursday – 9/4/2014 in time for kick-off of the Seahawks season opener. We will be getting a limited amount to our tap accounts each week for gameday. We ask you to wait to tap this keg at kick-off each week.The Foggy Noggin tap accounts will be in a weekly lottery for a keg of this beer.
Next game we will be selecting is Sunday 9/14 when the Seahwaks travel to San Diego and play the Chargers @1:05PM – we will announce weekly where this beer will be on tap for the Seahawks game.
