Drink of the Week: Anderson Valley Anniversary Imperial IPA

Tailgating at home for this year’s Super Bowl? Get game-ready with this imperial IPA from California brewer Anderson Valley. Back by popular demand after an inaugural release in 2007 commemorating two decades of brewing, this big beer has the body and balance to pair with everything from light snacks to burgers, pizza or pork ribs. Approachable and nuanced, this IPA shows layers of sweet, floral aromas, fruit and citrus flavors and a long, creamy finish. And, while we’re not placing bets on who’ll take the Super Bowl, we’ll definitely take our chances on calling this brew a winner come game day. avbc.com
