Game-Day Beverages! It's not all about the beer... May 02 2016

YES we know PORTOPONG is a beer pong toy, so we probably should be discussing which light beer works best at a tailgate. Is it Coors Light, Natty Light. Bud Light, Peels, Pabst, or insert any other yellow beer brand! Instead we are going to share with you one of our favorite side drinks, everyone knows you gotta have side drink when tailgating! 

And we are big bourbon fans, usually a Bulleit Rye and if not it's a Makers Mark, but this little something special is a beverage that everyone from whiskey lover to whiskey who.
