For many, tailgating isn’t tailgating without beer.
And while a cicerone may be able to point you to the perfect tasting brew to go with your brat, and a frat guy could steer you to the cheapest, sometimes a pretty bottle (or can) is all you need.
Especially when it comes stamped with a tiger on an orange-and-blue background.
Which is why when TWER‘s own J.M. Comer brought Tiger Beer from Singapore to my attention, I knew it deserved yours.
While Mr. Comer grants that it is “better than Foster’s,” he admits no one exactly raved about it when he served it during last year’s LSU game.
But, lest you be deterred, the company assures its customers that “whenever you drink Tiger, wherever you drink Tiger, it tastes exactly how we mean it to taste” and “there’s nothing quite like the taste of an ice-cold Tiger Beer.”
That all sounds rather profound, but a bit noncommittal.
However, the Brewing Industry International Awards, apparently, could not heap enough praise on the Tiger and decided in 1998 to officially proclaim it “The World’s Best Lager Beer.”
And if the specially imported German hops, the exclusive strain of Holland yeast or the label itself are not enough to sway you, perhaps a hint of Green amongst all that orange and blue might: Tiger Beer has adopted three tiger brothers, Satria, Jepati and Tuah, (who their customers are encouraged to visit at Singapore Zoological Gardens), in an effort to protect the endangered species.
It takes 100 days to make a tiger, 21 days to make a Tiger, and 21 years to legally drink one in the state of Alabama. Please drink responsibly and don’t drive on the Tiger…
But do feel free to drink and ride the tiger.
