Try out a six pack of Barrel House Brewing Company’s Company’s Sunny Daze, Mango IPA, or grab something from Firestone Walker’s lineup of stellar beers like Pivo Pils, 805 or Easy Jack.

Everyone knows about Splash Café’s award-winning clam chowder, but both Splash locations also have a full bakery filled with delicious goods. Order a cake, place an order for cookies and pastries and give everyone at the party something sweet to eat.

Brown Butter Cookie Company in Paso Robles and Cayucos has the perfect cookie for every person. Scrumptious, handmade cookies cooked in brown butter will be a hit in the first half and we promise they’ll be gone before the second.

If you aren’t a big fan of beer but would still like something delicious to drink for the big game, try hard cider from Bristol’s Cider House in Atascadero. With so many cider choices you may want to fill a few growlers to share at the party.
