Beer and basketball are my two favourite things, and my devotion to each borders on the religious. So when I drank a beer from the best brewery in the world at the restaurant of the best basketballer in the world, it was kind of like I’d made a pilgrimage to a holy place to partake in the drinking of a holy beverage.
Michael Jordan’s bar and restaurant in Chicago was the perfect setting for my first beer from the legendary 3 Floyds brewery, rated no. 1 brewery on the RateBeer site.
I ordered the Alpha King, an appropriate choice in the bar of perhaps the greatest alpha male sports has ever known. The beer did not disappoint, with an assertive hoppy taste, well balanced with malt.
Yes you might say the beer was a ‘slam dunk’ (insert groan here).
