Cheer on The Phoenix Suns with These Festive Foods and Drinks

Devin Booker supposedly loves Applebee's. But if you are looking to spread a little local love while cheering on the Phoenix Suns this year, Valley restaurants and breweries have got you covered.

Last year, when the Suns made it to the finals for the first time since 1993, the Valley erupted with support for the hometown team. Purple and orange became the unofficial colors of food in metro Phoenix, being displayed on donuts, cupcakes, and even arepas.

Now, as the Phoenix Suns make it further in the NBA playoffs, Valley restaurants, breweries, and bakeries are jumping on board to show support for the team once again. Some true fans are recreating these colorful bites in hopes that the team will take it all the way to the top.

Here are some food and drink options around the Valley to show your support for the Phoenix Suns.

Local favorite brewery Wren House cleverly renamed their popular Valley Beer to Rally Beer two years running in support of the call to Rally the Valley. But this year, they are taking it a step further. The brewery's award-winning IPA Spellbinder is now sporting a custom orange and purple label for a limited time. The special edition cans are available at the brewery located on 24th Street.

It's safe to say the owners of La Purisima bakery are Suns fans. This year, they are bringing back last year's colorful purple and orange conchas. And not only are the sweet breads festive, but they also inspired a new character, a little concha with a purple and orange smiling face saying "Vamos Suns" that the bakery has printed on t-shirts, stickers, and tote bags. So fans can show their support for the team while also shopping local for conchas and merch.

Called the Los Sols, this pizza is topped with tomato sauce, Mexican cheeses, bacon, pineapple, jalapenos, cilantro, and ranchero sauce. A large will set you back $25 and it's only available during the playoffs.
