Governors wager beer, food in college championship bet


SALEM, Ore. >> Nuts, beer, cheese and lasagna are up for grabs in the friendly wager between the governors of Oregon and Ohio, whose flagship universities compete in the college football championship next week.

The Ohio State Buckeyes face the Oregon Ducks on Monday.

A spokesman for Gov. John Kitzhaber says the Oregon Democrat is wagering a six-pack of Total Domination IPA from Ninkasi Brewing in Eugene. He’s also offering a box of hazelnuts, which Oregonians call filberts, and 5 pounds of Tillamook cheese.

Republican Gov. John Kasich of Ohio is offering beer from Columbus Brewing Company and a tray of the governor’s favorite lasagna from Monte Carlo Italian Kitchen in Westerville, his hometown. He’ll also throw in some buckeyes — the chocolate and peanut butter candies, not the poisonous nuts.
