JOHN RIGGINS’

4th&1 PILSNER

About the brew

Named as a nod to John Riggins’ famous game-changing 4th & 1 touchdown in 1983’s Superbowl XVII for which he was awarded the Superbowl MVP – the John Riggins’ 4th&1 Pilsner is, technically speaking, a German-style Pilsner brewed with only classic pilsner ingredients.

Malts used are true-to-style 2-row pilsner malt and dextrin malt.  Hops are noble, old-world hops including: German hops Perle & Tettnanger, as well as the Czech hop, Saaz. Water profile dialed in to have specific characteristics of mineral-rich deep water wells found in Europe.

Brewed by: Escutcheon Brewing

“I’ve known Art Major for awhile, and when I thought of the possibility of brewing a beer to my liking, Art’s name was the only name on the list. Not because there weren’t other possibilities, but because I know [Art] doesn’t half-step anything, and after meeting Brewmaster John Hovermale, it became obvious Art had chosen his brewmaster wisely. In my opinion, John Hovermale may have created a Pilsner that will put a fork in the road of the Pilsner Parkway. 4th and 1 Pilsner may be the road less traveled, but most enjoyed.”

Justice O’Connor
John Riggins

On Jan. 30, 1985, Riggins was set to attend the Washington Press Club’s annual black-tie event, “Salute to Congress,” at the Washington Sheraton.

“I had been with a good friend, had a few beers, didn’t bother to eat, went down to the hotel where the party was, walked in and, God I don’t know why, because I hardly ever drink it, I had a double scotch. And I had another…….by now you get into that frame of mind where everybody’s at the party and Justice O’Connor’s getting ready to leave, so of course that’s when I said the now famous words “Loosen up, Sandy, baby!” and, basically it was me saying “Don’t go! C’mon we’re gonna have alotta fun.” Then it was *whoosh* *boom* TIMBER! I tell people it looked like an 18-wheeler jackknifed on the interstate. I guess instead of making a commotion; they just left me there ’til the party was over.”
