March 10, 2008 - Midwest League (MWL) - Great Lakes Loons
To some fans over the age of 21, no baseball game is complete without that tall cup of fermented hops and barley. Beer has been helping fans stay refreshed while enjoying America\'s pastime for generations.
This season, the Loons have added an additional beer option with a familiar name. In cooperation with Tri-City Brewing Company of Bay City, the Loons have lent their name to a new ballpark option to compliment the already popular Phoenix Golden Ale.
It\'s called Loons Summer Ale, and the Loons and Tri-City Brewing will be hosting a launch party to formally introduce the new beverage on March 27 at the Kingfish Restaurant, 1019 North Water Street in Bay City.
The event will be held from 5:30 until 8:00pm. Plenty of the new brew will be available for sampling for those 21 years of age and older.
Loons Summer Ale is a balanced ale with a light, clean taste and a unique orange aroma providing a refreshing, thirst quenching finish.
"It\'s a beer anyone would like," said Kevin Peil, president of Tri-City Brewing. "It\'s very smooth and drinkable, the perfect beer for watching a baseball game."
The new Loons\' Summer Ale will be available at Dow Diamond during games at two locations. The Loons will also continue serving Tri-City\'s popular Phoenix Golden Ale. Beer prices during the season remain $5.00 for both of Tri-City\'s ales in a 24 oz. souvenir All-Star Game cup.
The first chance to sample Loons\' Summer Ale at a Loons game will be the team\'s April 3 opener versus Dayton. Tickets are available for opening weekend by visiting Loons.com or calling 989-837-BALL.
The Great Lakes Loons are the second-year Single-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers and members of the Midwest League. For more information about the Loons, visit Loons.com or call 989-837-BALL.
