As the NFL continues to grow in popularity in Scotland, Stewart Brewing has teamed up with the NFL Scotland podcast for a couple of virtual events, kicking off this Thanksgiving weekend.

Edinburgh’s Stewart Brewing has teamed up with the NFL Scotland podcast to offer fans a beer kit to enjoy alongside two live events starting with Thanksgiving games, which take place on Thursday 26 November.

The NFL Scotland podcast, fronted by Cameron Hobbs and Paul Mitchell, with frequent guests Ian Steven, Sky Sports’ Charles Paterson, STV’s Jamie Borthwick and PFF’s Gordon McGuinness will host a live Zoom watch-a-long for fans of the sport, paired with eight beers from Stewart Brewing.

The group have hosted live events both in Glasgow and Edinburgh for fans before, but with restrictions in place this will be the second virtual event of the year so far.

Fans who sign up for the event can expect to receive eight beers, an NFL Scotland woolly hat and access to two live events on Thursday 26 November and Sunday 29 November, which includes a live prize draw where viewers can win a range of prizes.

Here’s what beers are included

1x Lager

1x Edinburgh Gold

1x Hollyrood

1x St Giles

1x Kai Pai

1x Radical Road

1x Franz

1x First World Problems

The NFL action will be available on Sky Sports, with Houston Texans at Detroit Lions, Washington Football Team at Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers providing the television entertainment for the evening.

While fans watch the games on TV, they’ll be able to discuss what’s happening with Cameron, Paul and the gang, bringing the live event atmosphere into homes in these days of not being able to go out to the pub.

Founder of NFL Scotland podcast, Cameron Hobbs said: “We’ve done a number of these events both live and virtually and they’ve proved to be a big hit.

“We want to put on something like this to give the NFL fans in Scotland the opportunity to be part of something together at a time when many of us are stuck watching the games alone.”
