PA Brewing Company Releases "We Talkin' Bout Practice" Beer, Featuring Iverson Stepping Over Lue

Three more Philadelphia legends have been revealed on SportsRadio 94WIP, a RADIO.COM affiliate, in their G.O.A.T. of Broad Street countdown. We're now in the deep into the countdown, awaiting only the top five, and diehard Philly fans are fiercely debating every name called, every name omitted, and every name that has yet to appear.

76ers' great Allen Iverson has not yet been named, and it's very possible that he's atop the whole list despite some heavy competition. He completely changed the culture of basketball, providing Philadelphia with one of the most electrifying, confident and fun-to-watch talents that fans have ever witnessed. He brought an otherwise unexceptional team to the 2001 NBA Finals after dropping 31.1 points per game, leading the association with 2.5 steals per contest and bringing home the league MVP award.

But we don't have to tell all this to Lost Tavern Brewing, a brewing company based out of Pennsylvania within the greater Philadelphia area. If I were to guess, Iverson might already have their votes, especially after the brand new beer release that they announced on their Instagram page.

The new brew, named in tribute to Iverson's well-known rant and clearly featuring the famous Iverson-over-Lue play (courtesy of artist Gretchen Gross), went on presale this week. To no one's surprise, the presale filled up quickly.

It's not only the name and the graphic that makes it an irresistible purchase for Philadelphia locals. It sounds delicious, too, described as a double IPA "with milk sugar and dry hopped with Cashmere, Citra and El Dorado." At 8.5% ABV, it can serve as a pretty potent fuel for the inevitable arguments that surface as a result of the G.O.A.T. of Broad Street countdown.

It also serves as a reminder that Iverson's inclusion on the list is certainly warranted. The endlessly quotable practice speech? The gutsy Finals performance? The crossover?

Poor Tyronn Lue. It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest bit if he had gone home after becoming a part of one of the most recognizable displays of disrespect and dissolved some of his sorrows in a cold beer.

It's too bad he didn't have access to the "We Talkin' Bout Practice" beer at the time.
