NBA Draft Lottery Brews (Blues?)
This post is by guest writer Cman (read his latest post on Celtics Blog).
On Tuesday May 22nd we had two beers and a lucky hat to help bring luck to the Celtics: the #1 pick in the NBA draft lottery. The #1 pick would garner rights to draft Greg Oden, the prized freshman Center from Ohio State. Hoping to do our part, we carefully selected two beers: Samuel Adams Boston Lager and Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA. The Sam Adams would channel Boston and the Big Daddy would channel Greg Oden..... Unfortunately the "channels" got crossed and the Portland Trail Blazers ended up with the #1 pick and Boston ended up with the #5 pick.
Now to the beers:
Sam Adams Boston Lager (R)
-Sweet, smooth, caramel notes. But not sweet enough to bring lottery bliss to the Celtics.
Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA (L)
-A strong IPA that went down bitter mid sip when the Boston Celtics logo emerged from envelope #5. Ouch.
