Peyton Manning wants Bud Light, Colorado craft brewery perks up

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Come on, Peyton! There's better beer in the Rockies!

When asked about potentially retiring, Peyton Manning responded that all he wanted was to go home and drink some Bud Light:

Wise move: Bud Light is the official beer of the NFL, and they've been known to reward athletes for plugging the stuff -- remember Shane Battier's free truck full of beer?

However, this was a bit of a faux pas in Denver. First of all: Denver! If you're gonna go for nationally advertised macrobrew... Coors! Come on, Peyton! They named the damn baseball stadium after it! A taste as cold as the Rockies!

Second of all: Colorado is home to many a craft brew. The beer snob's favorite brewery in the state reached out to Peyton:

As someone with a sixer of Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro in the fridge as I type this, I urge Peyton to consider their plea. (Although if he wants light beer, he probably won't be down with milk stout.) I just think Left Hand missed out on the enormous football/beer crossover market by not making a TeBrew for a certain left-handed quarterback.
