    I’d been hoping for the 49ers to make it all the way, but I guess I’ll just suck it up and root for the Patriots. Perhaps I’ll have to drown my sorrows in some tasty GF beer & goodies. 😉

    The Patriots will defeat the NY Giants in the upcoming Superbowl. It will be all the more enjoyable with New Planet Beer washing down Glutino pretzels.

    The Patriots are totally going to win the Super Bowl. Planet/Patriots/Pretzels/Parmesan/Peppers all a winning combination!

    Pats will win the game. I’ll win if I have these snacks to go with my beer. I love all of them.

    (Your pale ale made me cry when I found it. It had been *so long* since I could drink a pale ale.)

    I don’t care too much who wins but I just hope for a good game and a gluten-less night! I bet the Patriots will win it…

    I think the Patriots will pull off the win. Brady wants payback for Manning and the Giants winning in 2008 and ruining what would have been a perfect season.

    My name is Francesca, I’ve been gluten free for 6 years. The love of my life, and boyfriend has just had to go gluten free (literally yesterday-January 25th). He’s having a lot of really bad symptoms and just having a hard time coping with this dramatic change. He has been dealing with these symptoms for over 10 years as well.. I want to cheer him up, and I think this would really do it! He loves football, he has been watching every game this season. He tells me his heart is saying that the Giants are going to win, and they have an extremely well quarter back. Also he says they Patriots tend to “flop”…. I can not tell you how much it would mean to win this for him!!! Crossing my fingers SUPER TIGHT 🙂

    After I picked up a four pack of Off Grid today at Morgan liquors in Denver, I think that I will be the big winner next Sunday. As a Dolphins fan, I’m rooting for anyone but the Patriots. Let’s go Giants!

    I don’t watch football, but I just googled it, and the first link I clicked on said The New England Patriots would win. So, gooooo Patriots!

    I’m not a big football fan but I am a huge beer and pretzel fan and can only partake if they’re gluten free! I’ll go with Giants.

    I am a Colts and Manning fan, so, I’m going to have to go with the Giants! Kinda like keeping it in the family 🙂

    Katie says:

    Gahh I can’t honestly say I am truly rooting for anyone this time around…I’ll be ready to take in some (hopefully) funny commercials and gluten free goodness (3R Raspberry Ale please?)

    Tim Hughes says:

    I’m picking the Patriots and after what the Giants did to my Packers, I can’t count them out but the Pack started to believe their own hype a dnbeat themselves more than the Giants beating them. The big winner will be me though! I was diagnosed 3 months ago with Celiac’s and I just discovered Glutino chocolate covered pretzels about 1 month ag and had my first New Planet just this past friday! I know what I will be enjoying on Super Bowl Sunday now!

    Austin M says:

    I have to cheer for Eli and the Giants over the Pats, so sick of them winning all the time! But hopefully I can have some good snacks and a few bottles of New Planet to keep my mind elsewhere (mainly the commercials) if the Patriots do happen to get the win.

    Rochelle says:

    I get to spend the day with some of my best friends in the world, so I already win. But some Raspberry Ale and Chocolate covered Pretzels would really round it out. Go Browns…

    I don’t really care who wins – I just like the excuse to drink New Planet and eat pizza! But I guess I will lean towards the Giants.

    NFC all the way…keeping it in the family. Seahawks fan here rooting for the Giants. Doesn’t hurt that my partner’s Dad is a huge NY fan either. That keeps the family dynamic going in a good direction. 🙂

    I found out I have a gluten intolerance last summer at 39. I thought football and Fridays would never be the same. Thank you for your creation! I tried the pale yale but it was far too bitter for me. Tread lightly is incredible! Even my local bar is carrying it for me! Yummy! Thank you for bringing beer back to my football games!

    Tony S from Pittsburgh says:

    The Pats – I just can’t imagine Bradey letting it slip away to Eli and the Giants again.
    That said, I would still love to see the Pats lose.

    Go Steelers!

    Brenda Fossett says:

    My teams didn’t make it, but I’ll say NY. Would love to try the beer but it is not in my area-southwest Missouri. However, it is sold at a HyVee and that chain just opened a store here and maybe they could ship here.

    New Englander born and raised… New England Patriots 23-7, WE WILL WIN THIS ONE! I would LOVE some gluten free beer to go with that can of WHOOP ARSE! YEAHHH PATS!
