Basketball Brackets and Bottles of Kräftig

Hey, we get it, your bracket is busted. So you lost a couple dollars… it’s not the end of the world. You win some, you lose some— it’s nothing a Kräftig or two can’t fix. Beer will make you feel better about yourself, especially if you’re drinking Kräftig while watching the rest of the tournament at one of these fine establishments.

Here’s some of our favorite spots to catch the games:

Helen Fitzgerald’s
This place has wall-to-wall TVs. Which means there’s no way you’re missing anything. And as if we actually had to say anymore, they’re running beer bucket specials all tournament long.

Hands down the best wings in town, which just so happens to be Billy’s favorite food to pair with Kräftig Light. Oh, they also have TVs as far as the eye can see and frequently feature live music, so chances are you’ll be able to celebrate properly when your favorite team wins.

Circle 7 Ranch
For those of you looking for more competition than just basketball, Circle 7 is running a beer bracket that includes Kräftig. Go for the food and drinks, stay for the game, and help us advance to the next round in the process.

Fox and Hound
Besides having a name that harkens back to gentlemanly things like leather-bound books and the smell of rich mahogany, this place has dozens of big screen TVs. They also have a HAP (huge ass projector), so that’s a thing.

Mike Duffy’s Pub and Grill in Kirkwood
Best burgers in town? Check. Delicious St. Louis-style pizza? Check. TVs all over the place? Check. Mouth-watering ribs special on Fridays? Check. What we’re saying is that this place has a lot going for it, which is pretty nice.

B. Hall’s Family Grill
B. Hall’s has some of the best food and drink specials around, including Kräftig bottle specials on Thursdays. The family-friendly atmosphere makes it a great place to bond over basketball with your kids.

Two Shamrocks
Two Shamrocks has some of the best made-from-scratch pub food that money can buy in O’Fallon. With daily lunch specials and all-you-can-eat smoked ribs on Sundays, this place is perfect if you’re wanting to enjoy great food while watching the games.

Weber’s Front Row
With over 30 HD TVs, you’ll always have a front row seat to every game at Weber’s. Enjoy your Kräftig alongside more St. Louis favorites such as toasted ravioli and thin crust pizza. And in case you need a break from the basketball, there’s always the arcade!

Sure, their name is based on hockey, but that doesn’t mean it’s not also one of the best places to catch some basketball action. Did we mention they have $2 cans of Kräftig at Happy Hour? Because they have $2 cans of Kräftig at Happy Hour. How awesome is that?

Be sure to catch the games at one of these great places. We all know that watching basketball is more fun with good friends, good food, and good beer. Can’t forget the beer. Seriously, without a cold Kräftig in hand, you’ll be just as sad as someone who lost a couple grand on that last upset.
