Super Bowl Bet Pits N.Y. Breweries Against Smuttynose

Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) are all in for the big game on Sunday, betting a round of craft brews from their home states on the outcome of the New York Giants-New England Patriots Super Bowl.

The collegial wager, Congress’ version of product placement, requires the loser to furnish every other Senator — they could actually assemble that proverbial 99 bottles of beer on a wall for the payoff! — with at least one bottle plucked from the winner’s local breweries.

The obligatory smack talking has already spilled over onto Twitter.
