The FIFA World Cup runneth over. For the resourceful and curious drinker, this sporting event presents many wonderful opportunities. Think of it as a learning opportunity: Almost every country involved has at least one signature wine or spirit. And you will try them all, game after game. Consider some of my experience, then stock your fridge and liquor cabinet for the games to come.
The pairing opportunities between game and drink only got better from there. England versus the USA allowed me to start with a Beefeater and tonic (Fever-Tree with lots of lime) and then continue with a couple of cold bottles of crisp Prima Pils from Victory Brewing Company of Downingtown, Pennsylvania.
