The loser will buy beers from the winner’s home state for the entire Senate. Shaheen, a New England Patriots fan, said in a news release, “This Sunday, the only thing sweeter than the taste of craft beer brewed in the Granite State will be the taste of victory when the Patriots beat the Giants.”

Diehard New York Giants fan Schumer countered, “When Big Blue brings Tom Brady and Bill Belichick to their knees, the entire U.S. Senate will understand why we love New York brew. Go Giants!”
