Watch out Natty-Light. Pasadena’s new Haven Gastropub + Brewery is giving traditional Rose Bowl tailgate beers a run for their money. The restaurant has assigned a specific brew to both of this year’s competing Rose Bowl teams, Oregon and Wisconsin. (The Ducks have Rogue Ales Brewery while the Badgers have Leinenkugel Brewing Co.) The college that sells the most of their affiliated beer by January 2 (that’s Rose Bowl day this year, as New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday) will earn 100 percent of the proceeds from said suds. The “Haven Beer Bowl” runs from December 30 through January 2. Eight wines, four cask ales and 52 beers on tap are also available for neutral game watchers. We can hear the glasses clanking now.
