Wine: Kansas City BBQ calls for Zinfandel (Profile 6)

Start your Chiefs-themed spread with a flavorful Zinfandel like BOXT Profile 6. This red wine's rich plum and cherry notes complement the smoky flavors of Kansas City BBQ, especially smoked turkey and burnt ends.

Cheese: Creamy Havarti with a Touch of Heat

Pair your Zinfandel with creamy Havarti cheese infused with jalapeño peppers. The creaminess of the cheese balances the wine's bold flavors, while the hint of heat adds an extra layer of complexity. Serve with crackers or crusty bread for the ultimate game day snack.

Wine: Cabernet Sauvignon (Profile 5)

For the 49ers, BOXT Profile 5 Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect choice. The Queen of Napa Valley, just across the bay from the city, this full-bodied red wine boasts notes of dark fruits, oak and spice, which pairs well with steak, burgers, lamb, heavy cheeses and hearty vegetables. For those serving Texas-style BBQ, this is the wine to serve with brisket and ribs.

Cheese: Artisanal Point Reyes Blue Cheese

Pair your Profile 5 Cabernet Sauvignon with a slice of creamy and tangy Point Reyes Blue Cheese. This award-winning cheese is made in Marin County, the 49ers backyard, just a short drive from San Francisco. Its bold flavor profile and creamy texture make it the ideal companion for your wine selection.

Multiple boards with cheese, fruit, and charcuterie

Half-Time Snack Showdown

You know Usher is going to bring it, so you’d better also! For halftime, bring both teams together with a crowd-pleasing cheeseboard featuring a variety of cheeses and wines. Include a selection of aged Cheddar, Gouda, and Brie, nuts, chocolate and fig jam, alongside a range of wines including Sauvignon Blanc (BOXT Profile 1), Chardonnay (BOXT Profile 2), Pinot Grigio (BOXT Profile 3), Pinot Noir (BOXT Profile 4) and Tempranillo/Malbec (BOXT Profile Four Five.) This halftime spread will keep everyone satisfied and ready for the second half.

Beer with a cheese board

Extra Point: Beer and Cheese Pairing for All

Of course, no Super Bowl party would be complete without beer! Consider offering a selection of craft beers from Kansas City and San Francisco to accompany your cheeseboard. From hoppy IPAs to smooth stouts, there's a beer style to suit every palate and enhance the flavors of your favorite cheeses.

Cheers to a championship-worthy spread and may the best team win!
