WORCESTER – Wormtown Brewery announced on Tuesday that it will be the official local brewery of the future Worcester Red Sox.
The brewery will be releasing a new beer called “Welcome to Worcester, $1.25” — a Vienna Lager “brewed with Vienna and Munich malts for its bright copper color, soft toasted aromas, and a light, bready flavor that’s a home run!”
“We are proud to join with Wormtown to provide a natural partnership between the most popular brewery in the Heart of the Commonwealth with what we hope will be another popular team in town when the Red Sox begin play at Polar Park in 2021,” said PawSox Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing Rob Crain.
A special event will be held at Wormtown Brewery — 72 Shrewsbury St. — on March 2 at 12 PM to welcome the Worcester Red Sox organization.
The event will feature a limited “Town Hall” meeting with Worcester Red Sox leadership, a Worcester baseball jersey, a pop up collaboration with Coney Island Hot Dogs & Table Talk Pies, live music, and will be capped off with the limited release of “Welcome to Worcester” including a very small batch that is aged on locally-made wooden bats.
“Since the industrial leagues, Worcester has always been a baseball town,” said David Fields, Managing Partner of Wormtown Brewery. “Lesser known is that it also has a great brewing history. We could not be any more excited to align ourselves with Worcester’s Home Town Team!”
“For us, Wormtown has always been about quality and local,” said Ben Roesch, the Brewmaster/Founder of Wormtown Brewery. “Putting the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate in a brand new downtown ballpark is as local and quality as it gets. Our ‘Welcome to Worcester $1.25’ commemorative beer will be a classic Vienna lager featuring an amber color, light caramel sweetness, and clean crisp finish. The fact that a $1.25 donation from each pint will go to the team’s charitable foundation makes it even better. This beer will pair amazingly well with a Coney Island Hot Dog, a slice of Table Talk Apple Pie, and a side of Triple-A Baseball.”
