This year's beer...
Hazy 8% DIPA Brewed with Organic Malt from the U.K. & Germany, balanced bitterness from Citra & Simcoe Hops, then Dry-hopped with a grip of Mosaic hops for a tropical, fruity, juicy flavor and aroma. Dangerously refreshing, with big notes of Guava & Passionfruit, and a clean finish.
"Big" Ben Davidson, renowned for his 1960s exploits as an Oakland Raider Defensive End, as well as his enormous frame, grandiose mustache and his famed Miller Lite commercials, was obsessed with collecting cans, and bottles, during his travels as both a professional football player and devoted family man.
The six foot eight three-time AFL All Star and member of the AFL Hall of Fame began his football career with the Green Bay Packers — and that year the team won the NFL championship. Davidson later landed in the AFL with the Raiders, an iconoclastic team full of larger than life personalities and renegades, Davidson among them. Davidson played in Super Bowl II, three AFL championship games and the first AFC championship game. Davidson was part of the "Eleven Angry Men" defense that set the record for sacks in a season with 73 and made the Raiders the most notorious team in football. READ MORE...
