An age-old tradition
At the end of the workday, or relaxing at home, cracking a cold one is a green light for switching from work mode to chill mode. The same goes for football and a beer – it’s a tradition that goes back more than 135 years and probably longer too. From the dawn of time men have made beer – the ancient man probably made beer and enjoyed watching sports.
