Game Changer

*Ad - This is a compensated post. All opinions are my own.

I think about 90% of my posts mention beer or alcohol. Actually, let's make that 99% of my posts include the topic of any type of adult beverage. I am not ashamed of that especially when that means that I get contacted by Buffalo Wild Wings to go try their new beer - Game Changer Ale. The Game Changer was designed by Redhook Brewery and is made to pair perfectly with wings. 

Now I have never been a huge fan of Buffalo Wild Wings just because chicken wings are not my favorite dietary item but I am not one to turn down a new beer. The nice thing about this craft is that it is a session beer. When I go to most breweries around Indy, their beers are so high in alcohol that I am drunk after 2 beers. That might be great some days but not when you want to enjoy some food and watch a game. 
I had to take A with me because he will also never turn down a new beer tasting experience. So when we arrived to Buffalo Wild Wings, we ordered two beers. Game Changer has a great color and holds its head during the entire time you are drinking it. Am I sounding like a beer snob or just crazy? As for the flavor, it has a slightly malty taste but was extremely smooth. 
Then I had to try the beer with some wings because they say the Game Changer is perfect with wings and I don't think all beers go well with wings. A and I each ordered a mixture of sauces - Asian Zing, Spicy Garlic, Teriyaki, Parmesan Garlic, and Mango Habanero. I ordered the boneless wings and A ordered the traditional however, all of our wings came out as boneless. It ended up being okay because I could try all of the different sauces with the beer rather than the ones I ordered. Did you know that I absolutely hate biting into a chicken wing with bones? Now you do.
I must say that the beer actually tasted better with the wings. Game Changer is a great way to wash down some food or drown your sorrows - you pick. 

I used to choose a lighter beer when eating wings like a Coors Light or Miller Light but now if I am going to be eating at Buffalo Wild Wings I will definitely choose Gamer Changer. I would have never thought to pair an Ale with so many different flavor wings but it works. However, I will not be eating the Mango Habanero sauce ever again in my life. I thought I was going to die!

  1. I too cannot stand meat with bones in it :-) If I ever get the chance to go to B-dubs, I will have to try out Game Changer.
