The Turnover Chain is a college football phenomenon, and things hit a new level with undefeated Miami's big win over Notre Dame.

The chain got a lot of play on national television, as the 'Canes defense forced four turnovers en route to a 41-8 win over the then-No. 3 Fighting Irish.

Miami is now the third-ranked team in the new College Football Playoff rankings, fans all over the Miami area are buying their own turnover chains, and turnover chain merch. Soon, they'll be able to celebrate a 'Canes interception with a turnover chain beer.

J. Wakefield Brewing in Miami is currently developing the Turnover India Pale Ale, with an awesome label paying homage to the iconic piece of Miami swag.

More, from SouthFlorida.com:

The beer will be a Northeast IPA, with citrus and floral notes.

Wakefield says he plans to brew the 30-barrel batch on Monday, Nov. 27. It should be ready the second week of December, and the Wynwood brewery is set to host a release party on Saturday, Dec. 9.

The IPA will be brewed in partnership with former Miami Hurricanes linebacker D.J. Williams, who was a member of the 2001-2002 national championship team.

J. Wakefield Brewery will release the new IPA on draft, and will be canning it as well, with four-packs retailing for $16.

Hopefully, Miami will still be on the College Football Playoff hunt when those first kegs are tapped.
