This Is Why You Need Clingks At Your Superbowl 50 Party

It’s Superbowl 50 this year – a noteworthy anniversary of one of the greatest sporting events of all time.  Well I hope you planned ahead and took PTO for Monday, because as tradition has it, you will be eating and drinking all day and night.

And the worst that could happen during the cheering and screaming at the TV, is you misplace your drink… Is this yours or it is Steve’s? Ha, that Steve, he’s always “all hopped up”.

With Clingks drink markers, everyone picks their personality for the game! Like Jim, he has “beer goggles” on right now because he is flirting with his cousin and thinks it’s his co-worker crush..

And no party would be complete without the “beer snob” – like Madison who considers herself a “craft beer connoisseur”… she can be “slightly bitter” at times…

Clingks 4 New Beer Themed Drink Markers

You’re in luck! Everyone can pick their own personality for the night with Clingks’ New beer themed drink markers. For this Superbowl 50 we have some customized Bronco and Panther sets! Works great on bottles, cans or even red solo cups. Comes in sets of 12.
