Well, since everyone’s missing the NHL due to the Olympics, I thought I’d have a little fun. All the blog sites have been writing about trade rumors, the Olympics, whats next for your team, etc. Booooring!!
I’m going to compare the Original Six NHL teams and the Columbus Blue Jackets to the beers that most match the team’s personality. For example: Sam Adams Boston Lager is perfect for the Bruins. Obviously, one reason is they’re both from Boston. Duh. But Sam Adams Boston Lager is a full-bodied, very well respected beer.
Now, comparing the Bruins to that description, have you ever seen Zdeno Chara? At 6’9 and 255 lbs, he is a very full-bodied hockey player. They also have many seasoned, well respected veterans on the squad…like Chara, Chris Kelly, and Tuukka Rask, all who have won Stanley Cups. An original team and an original patriot. A perfect match.
See how much fun that is?
Now, lets look at the Montreal Canadians. Molson Canadian is the perfect beer for this original team. Molson was first established in Montreal in 1786, well before the NHL was formed. But the brewery has backed the franchise from the start without any reservations. The Molson Canadian bottle has a maple leaf on the front, the symbol of Canada. The Montreal Canadians are lovingly called “Le Habitants” meaning the habitants of Canada. Molson and hockey just go together like peas and taters. A perfect match.
Stay tuned for Part 2!
