Bryan Steil (R-WI-01) and Dean Phillips (D-MN-03) made a friendly wager ahead of Sunday’s Packers-Vikings game at Lambeau Field. If the Packers win, Phillips will deliver Steil a 25-pound Pearson’s salted nut roll and beer from Excelsior Brewing Company and Minnetonka’s Unmapped Brewing. If the Vikings beat the Packers, Steil will give Phillips Wisconsin cheddar cheese from Mars Cheese Castle and a case of Janesville Gray’s Honey Ale.
“While Dean and I have worked well together on combatting human trafficking and creating jobs in our communities, we simply cannot see eye to eye on which team is the best in the NFC North,” said Steil. “I am looking forward to enjoying a Minnesota salted nut roll after a Green Bay Packer victory Sunday afternoon!”
“I have fond memories of my dad taking me to the last Vikings Super Bowl in 1977,” said Phillips. “It’s been a long road with a lot of great moments and big heartbreak since then as our Vikings have pushed to make it back to the big game. But this might be our year, and it starts on Sunday. Skol!”
