Extra Sauce: 5 recipes to win your Super Bowl party

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest unofficial American holiday of the year, and as with all our holidays, it comes with it’s own traditional menu of delicious eats. Step up your game day grub with five recipes for our favorite football food:


1. Get smoky with a big pot of Smoked White Bean Chili. (And before you cry foul, we’ve got the traditional red chili fans covered, too.)


2. Pulled Pork and pigskin are a classic combination, and ours simmers all day in a root beer-chile sauce.


3. Fire up the grill and savor the sweet heat of Harissa Honey Hot Wings.


4. No harissa? No problem. These Honey Sriracha Wings require just five key ingredients, including that bottle of rooster sauce in your fridge.


5. Fear not, vegan and vegetarians – even meat-heads will drool over these Macho Cauliflower Poppers. Sharing is optional.

Drink This Weekend Edition: A guide to drinking during the bowl games

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Big days lie ahead. No, we’re not talking New Year’s Eve or even New Year’s Day. We’re talking about non-stop college football. It’s the time of year to plant your butt on a chair and zone out to first and 10, fourth and long, and crazed, shirtless young males wearing body paint.

Thus, we bring you a guide to the college bowls. You won’t find picks predicting the winning team. Instead, you’ll find picks that make you a winner when it comes to what you drink during the game. It’s football, so it’s all beer, all the time. But which one? For that, we turned to Sean Conroy, co-owner of International Tap House. His watering holes in Soulard and Chesterfield each offer 40 beers on tap along with about 480 bottled beers from around the globe. Conroy offered his picks (and commentary, because what is sports without commentary?) for the beer to order when you watch the big bowl games at iTAP. He’s only taking you through to New Year’s Day. After that, it’s time to get off that couch.

Russell Athletic Bowl, Friday, Dec. 28., 4:30 p.m. CST
Rutgers vs. Virginia Tech
Four Hands Reprise Red. This beer is a nice shade of Rutgers Scarlet.

Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, Saturday, Dec. 29, 10:45 a.m. CST
Rice vs. Air Force
New Belgium Shift. Only in a can, it is a pale lager and it sports Air Force colors.

New Era Pinstripe Bowl, Saturday, Dec. 29, 2:15 CST
West Virginia vs. Syracuse
Southern Tier Choklat. Although it is brown in color, Southern Tier from Western New York really bleeds Orange.

Valero Alamo Bowl, Saturday, Dec. 29, 5:45 p.m. CST
Texas vs. Oregon State
Rogue Dead Guy. The liveliest beer to consume if you are backing the Beavers.

Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, Saturday, Dec. 29, 9:15 p.m. CST
TCU vs. Michigan State
Bells Two Hearted Ale. Hands down. Period.

Hyundai Sun Bowl, Monday, Dec. 31, 1:00 p.m. CST
USC vs. Georgia Tech
Stone Arrogant Bastard. The brand prides itself on being cocky. This pairing works best with Trojan Football.

AutoZone Liberty Bowl, Monday, Dec. 31, 2:30 p.m. CST
Iowa State vs. Tulsa
If you don’t support either of the natural disasters (Cyclones vs. The Golden Hurricanes) then just back a beer based three hours in distance between the two campuses which boasts the total points of a touchdown: Boulevard’s Tank 7.

Chick-fil-A Bowl, Monday, Dec. 31, 6:30 p.m. CST
LSU vs. Clemson
Abita’s Purple Haze. No doubt many of the tailgaters in Baton Rouge drink this not only because it supports its home team color, but its brewery is also only an hour away.

Rose Bowl, Tuesday, Jan. 1, 4:00 p.m. CST
Wisconsin vs. Stanford
Don’t leave the bar without having a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale as you support the Stanford Cardinal.

Discover Orange Bowl, Tuesday, Jan. 1, 7:30 p.m. CST,
Northern Illinois vs. Florida State
Drink a goose while rooting for the Huskies? You bet. Goose Island IPA.
