Gov. Deal Bet 12 Tropicalias on the Falcons Game

It’s hard to imagine Baptist Gov. Nathan Deal kicking back with a cold one to watch some football, but if he does, he has good taste. Deal included 12 Athens-made Creature Comforts Tropicalias in a wager with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker over this weekend’s Falcons-Packers playoff game.

In addition to the brewskis, Deal bet an unspecified amount of Coca-Cola (which, he added, is not “pop”), chili dogs from The Varsity, peach pies from Dickey Farms and Georgia peanuts. Sounds like a nice gameday spread to me.

Walker wagered two six-packs of Leinenkugel’s Wisconsin Red Pale Ale (which FYI is not a real craft brewery), a box of assorted chocolates from Seroogy’s Chocolates in De Pere, jars of liquid and spreadable crystal raw honey from Wisconsin Natural Acres in Chilton, assorted Wisconsin artisan cheeses, crackers and sausage and a pair of Travel Wisconsin Old Fashioned glasses.

It’s too bad Walker won’t get a chance to taste that Tropicalia. #RiseUp
