"The Guild has always been community-centric and passionate about supporting Rhode Island FC. Alongside The Guild, we're proud to offer the first RIFC Pale Ale to our fans."

The Guild Brewing Company has become a go-to location for major Rhode Island FC events. Most notably, The Guild Pawtucket hosted the first-ever RIFC Kit Reveal Party on December 4, 2023, where the 2024 Energy and Rhode jerseys were revealed for the first time. The Guild Pawtucket also hosted afterparties following the club's official brand launch on November 14, 2022, stadium groundbreaking on August 25, 2022 and Tidewater Landing project announcement on December 2, 2019.

Featuring an outer label made by Rhode Island FC Graphic Designer Carly Melton, the limited-edition RIFC Pale Ale comes in at 5.0% ABV and 15 IBUs. The American-style Pale Ale will be available in convenient 16oz cans on matchdays starting Saturday, April 13 when Rhode Island FC hosts Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC. Outside Beirne Stadium, craft beer enthusiasts can also purchase 4-packs exclusively at The Guild Pawtucket and The Guild Warren.

The RIFC Pale Ale was brewed to capture the spirit and energy of Rhode Island FC's inaugural season. It is a refreshing, sessionable pale ale with a soft mouthfeel and moderate bitterness. The easy-drinking golden yellow ale offers moderate levels of haze and aromas of tangerine and citrus fruit. The beer is a tribute to the passionate fans of Rhode Island FC and their unwavering support for their club.

"We're really excited to partner with Rhode Island FC and create this unique collaboration to celebrate the inaugural RIFC season," said Jeremy Duffy, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at The Guild Brewing Company. "We can't wait for fans to try RIFC Pale Ale."
