Punxsutawney Phil has made his prognostications on the weather, but who is he picking in the Big Game on Sunday? That’s right, it’s Super Bowl Week and the 50th playing of the NFL’s championship game has the sports (and beer) world dizzy with excitement.  Who will win?  Will the commercials be funny?  With which cold, frothy, delicious, hoppy beverage will you wash down those Super Nachos?

Delaware Hop Scene and NorthDelaWHEREHappening.com have emerged from the huddle with some great play calls on how to enjoy your favorite craft beers this week.  Check out the hoplights for Wednesday, February 3rd through Tuesday, February 9th below.  As always, feel free to gaze at the full sortable calendar of craft beer events at Delaware Hop Scene too!  It’s time for kick-off!
