Big Game watch parties across the Valley for football foodies and beer fans

The Super Bowl. The Big Game. The Pigskin Showdown. Whatever you want to call it, the Patriots are once again showcasing their skills on the final Sunday of the season in Minnesota, this time taking on the Eagles. Whether you’re tuning in to watch the gods of the gridiron battle it out or you’re just there for the commercials, the real excitement comes from attending a proper party. Here are our picks for the best places to grub, or, if you prefer, conquer that liquid diet.

An abundance of big-screen TVs, an eclectic beer selection and comforting appetizers are key ingredients to an ideal Super Bowl party. 595 Craft and Kitchen has all of the above and offers tailgate-style fare such as bacon-wrapped hot dogs and pork belly tacos. A $50 minimum food-and-drink charge is required per table, and guests are asked to come 30 minutes prior to kickoff. 4950 S. Rainbow Blvd., Suite 100, 595craftandkitchen.com

PKWY Tavern

PKWY Tavern is celebrating the Winter Olympics with patriotic "Red White and Blue" specials from February 9-25.The sheer number of beer that PKWY Tavern has to offer is reason enough to stake out a spot on Super Bowl Sunday. Beyond the selection of more than 250 beers, PKWY Tavern’s football sunday appetizers such as nachos and sliders add to the sports bar vibe. Reservations are being taken for February 4, where parties can view the game on multiple televisions or take a break and try their hand at cornhole and supersize Jenga.

Walking into Hofbrauhaus is like stepping foot onto a Hollywood set for The Sound of Music—nobody speaks German and everyone is wearing a lederhosen. And just because football is rarely aired in Munich, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it in an over-the-top Bavarian atmosphere. What’s even better is the $125 all-you-can-eat-and-drink Big Game package. Wash down your bratwurst or käsespätzle with imported beer. Prost! 4510 Paradise Rd., hofbrauhauslasvegas.com
