Our World Cup beer this year is a red – after all, it’s in Russia. The famous Thrilla in Manilla (Muhammad Ali fight) was the genesis for the name of our last World Cup beer, Thrilla in Brazilla. We are continuing with the famous Ali fight theme, this time opting to borrow from the Ali – Foreman fight known as the Rumble in the Jungle. As such, the name bestowed on our red ale for this World Cup is Rumble in Russia. The Tetris theme included in the image for the beer is a nod to the creation of this game in you guessed it…Russia. Rumble in Russia will be made available first to our Brewery Club Peticolas members on Thursday, June 7, and will be served exclusively in our Taproom the following Friday to Sunday. The beer will begin hitting the market the following Monday June 11 so that it will be pouring in the market for the first match on June 14.
As for the World Cup itself, we will open up the Taproom and show the following matches:
And merchandise? We will have a Rumble in Russia glass night in our Taproom on the opening day of the World Cup, Thursday June 14. The glasses will also be available at all World Cup watching parties. Rumble in Russia T-shirts will also be available for purchase in our Taproom throughout the World Cup.
