Biscayne Bay Brewing Company (Miami, Florida) has officially announced that it will release Marlins Lager, the official craft beer of the Miami Marlins, in early July 2020.
The result of a union between “two Miami brands that are committed to the South Florida community,” Marlins Lager is a traditional German-style Lager that possesses “deliciously soft, malty notes, low bitterness, noble hop aromas and a crisp clean finish.” Coming in at just 4.8% ABV, the “crisp and light-bodied” Marlins Lager is the “ideal teammate for baseball on a summer day.”
“With the start of the 2020 season around the corner, we are excited to bring the Marlins Lager to the South Florida community,” said David Oxfeld, Marlins Vice President and Head of Partnership Development and Strategy. “Our partners at Biscayne Bay Brewing Company knocked it out of the park with a great-tasting craft beer that will pair perfectly with fans cheering on the hometown team alongside family and friends.”
“We are incredibly honored to be producing a beer with the Marlins,” said Jose Mallea, President of Biscayne Bay Brewing. “The support they have shown us as an independent locally owned craft brewery cannot be overstated and we are excited to put out into market something that fans can enjoy in their own unique way. This is the perfect summer beer for Miami!”
Marlins Lager is rolling out now and will be hanging around throughout baseball season. You can expect to find this new offering available in 12 oz. bottles at select Publix, Winn-Dixie, Milam’s Market, Total Wine & More, and Whole Foods locations in Florida. Prost!
