Some people prefer drinking Vodka over beer because it has very little flavor, however, our vodka has a subtle sweetness that makes it smooth & delicious enough to sip on the rocks. Many of our fans (who don’t normally drink vodka), opt for drinking it on the rocks. The sweetness of the cassava root (tapioca dextrose) likens the flavor of our vodka to “morning dew.” Here are a few reasons why our fans are choosing vodka over beer this tailgating season.
#1 The Taste.
Beer flavor is generally a mixture of sweet (malt) and bitter (hops), and many people don’t like bitter. Hence why beer is referred to as a beverage with an “acquired taste.” But if you are open-minded there are lots of different IPAs and flavor combinations. The problem is beer generally holds into it’s “beer” flavor, creating an odd mix that’s difficult to mask.
Beer tends to have a strong, overwhelming aftertaste. It can make your favorite stadium foods taste better while drinking, but it can also leave an undesirable aftertaste that makes you want to eat and drink more. Vodka is nice because you can drink and then eat, only as much as you want. The aftertaste fades quickly, and you can maintain your buzz without getting too full. When you go back to the concessions for the third or fourth time, it’ll be because you’re having a blast and want to keep the fun going – not to rid your palette of a strange, yeasty aftertaste.
#2 The Cost.
Vodka lacks the crazy amount of additives found in most beers beer. It’s plain and simple, and our version has a subtle hint of vanilla so you won’t get bored of the taste. As I mentioned before, it tastes great alongside most stadium food, and it also blends well with most mixers.
So drinking vodka at the next tailgating party is extremely cost effective. You can drink as much or as little as you want, and eat to satisfy your cravings. It’s a straight forward option for the true sports fanatic that want to focus on the game. If you don’t want to be distracted by constantly using the bathroom, or buying additional food & beer to readjust your palette – take a few shots of HHA 1885.
#3 The Longer shelf-life.
Ok, here are a few things you probably already knew about drinking vodka vs drinking beer:
- Vodka intoxicates more quickly than beer.
- It’s a high-calorie product, but can be better for your weight than drinking consecutive beers.
- Vodka tastes better than beer if it’s been sitting out.
Here are a couple things you probably didn’t know.
- An unopened beer lasts 4 to 6 months. Unopened vodka can last more than 2 years.
- Beer will go stale 2 days after it’s been opened, whether you cap & refrigerate it or not.
- Vodka won’t go bad for several years if you store it in a cool, dark place.
- A bottle of vodka will keep through the entire season, fresh beer should be purchased for each tailgating party.
#4 The Better Buzz.
Who doesn’t love the warm & fuzzy feeling you get when drinking? There’s nothing better than tailgating in the crisp, fall breeze with a drink in one had and a brat in the other. This fall our fans are choosing vodka over beer because it comes on stronger, lasts longer, and makes for a great flavor pairing with your favorite stadium foods.
Vodka has a great warming effect within a few minutes of taking a shot. That also means that you can get a “game time” buzz without spending hours drinking in the parking lot. So what are you drinking this football season?
