On Sunday, the Capitals hosted their annual Casino Night at the MGM National Harbor, raising a lot of money for charity. The Stanley Cup was there as a surprise guest, but so were a wide variety of beers.
While the Capitals do a lot of things together as a team (such as opening their championship ring boxes together), each player has a unique personality of their own. And their beer (or wine) choice gives us even more insight.
I documented what most players drank. Some of the players drink things you would expect (Ovi, Bud Light). Others, like Braden Holtby, choose their beers like they choose their wardrobe: exacting.
Andre, you’re better than this.
Holtby showed up with a unique choice. I don’t even remember seeing Stone IPA as an offering. Did he bring his own beer? Stone Brewing is located in Escondido, California with their Delicious IPA being described as a citrusy India pale ale with Lemondrop & El Dorado hops.
Ooh, a Corona WITHOUT a lime. Bold.
This is Ian’s idea of craft beer.
I’ve never had a Heineken but I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t like it so it’s a nope from me.
How … enigmatic?
At least he tried to hide it with a napkin.
Seems to like the color green.
Didn’t expect anything less.
Forgiven after that OT goal.
Skeptical since “hiney” is in the name.
Corona is the most popular imported beer in Australia.
Fun fact: International beers are sold in two versions in Sweden – the normal product marketed as a starköl and a watered-down version as a folköl.
