KICKERS ANNOUNCE BRAND THE BREW CONTEST
Introduce “Kick It Hunny” as Exclusive Team-Specific Beer
RICHMOND, VA – (Thursday, February 20, 2014) – The Richmond Kickers are proud to introduce the limited-edition, team specific beer, Kick It Hunny, and are pleased to launch a Brand the Brew Contest to proceed the official unveiling in March. The Kickers are inviting fans to submit Kick It Hunny logo designs no later than Thursday, March 13 for a chance to win invitations to the VIP launch event, a custom Kickers jersey and a private party for 25 at a Kickers home game.
Hand-crafted by brewers, members of the media, Kickers fans and Wild Wolf Brewing Company, Kick It Hunny is a Belgian inspired American Pale Ale derived from the brewery’s popular Blonde Hunny. The smooth drinking session ale will tickle taste buds with hints of honey before finishing with a burst of citrus and hops. Lively aromas of crisp Citra hops, honey, and light malt mingle to create a refreshing nose. A hat trick of pilsner, wheat, and oat malts team up to give it a pale, cloudy yellow color and a thick, frothy white head. Kick It Hunny is a beautiful beer for fans of the beautiful game and is sure to become a favorite of soccer brewligans across RVA.
“We could not be more thrilled with how this entire process has gone,” commented Hunter Leemon, Richmond Kickers Director of Sales. “Working with Mary and Danny at Wild Wolf was such a great experience. They were willing to let a small number of our fans, Red Army members and media representatives participate in helping to craft the final product which was a tremendous experience. We are excited to share Kick It Hunny with our fans and the entire beer-loving community here in Richmond.”
