Along with winning the Super Bowl this past Sunday, Peyton Manning also divulged to the public that he has the beer preferences of a broke college student. The 39-year-old quarterback shamelessly replied to the question “What are you going to do next” by announcing to the masses, “I’m going to drink a lot of Budweiser tonight.”
While the majority of the college community instantly felt a sense of connection with The Sheriff, most likely due to the fact that they themselves were double-fisting two Buds at the time of his comments. One group in particular who promotes various craft beers, The Brewers Association, took exception to his comments. Their solution? Write Peyton a letter outlining their disappointment in his brew choices and send him send him a shitload of free beer.
The Brewers Association sent Peyton Manning craft beer, so he won't drink Budweiser. My suggestion? Drink it all pic.twitter.com/jLb4l6rLS7

While only time will tell if the five-time MVP can shy away from his light beer fixation, something tells me that Peyton’s off-season, and possibly retirement, is off to a pretty good start..
