WINE PAIRINGS FOR THE REFINED PURDUE FAN

SOMMELIER PETE WOULD BE HAPPY TO RECOMMEND A BOTTLE OR TWO

A Guide To Purdue Wine Pairings For Refined And Distinguished Boilermakers

Western Michigan: Chenin Blanc is a crisp and refreshing choice for this August home opener, with just enough acidity to reflect the all too real possibility that Purdue loses this game and an ecstatic P.J. Fleck tears down both goalposts by himself and carries them out of the stadium.

Central Michigan: As the calendar flips to September, we recommend a full-bodied Garnacha. The strong finish of this wine will help you ignore the two field goals Purdue misses in the fourth quarter on the way to Worse than a Supermajority of Directional Michigans status.

Southern Illinois: Toast Purdue's first victory with a glass of Californian Cabernet Sauvignon, as you ponder where things went so wrong that beating an FCS team could give you such happiness. Have a second glass, maybe.

Iowa: Pinot gris is so named because it's made from a grape grayish in color, and that's how you'll feel after watching a three overtime game where neither team scores fifteen points.

Michigan State: Water. There is no Jesus miracle thing going on here, you just need to minimize the damage this game is going to do to you.

Wisconsin: The Badger fan you bought this from in the parking lot insisted that brandy is wine, but it isn't.

Northwestern: Champagne is a wine for celebrating, and celebrate you should, because you finally don't have to go to any more Purdue games!
