They're making a beer together.
The beer, Marlins Lager, is advertised as a crisp, light-bodied, German-style lager that's the ideal teammate for baseball on a summer day. It's described as a soft beer with malty notes, low bitterness, noble hop aromas, and a crisp, clean finish.
"We are incredibly honored to be producing a beer with the Marlins," says 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."
According to the team's press release, the Marlins Lager partnership is about more than just beer and baseball; it's also about bringing together two Miami brands that are committed to the South Florida community. The team announced that for each six-pack of Marlins Lager sold, the Marlins will make a donation to the Miami Marlins Foundation's Home Plate Meals program, which supports the growing food-security needs in South Florida that have been heightened by the pandemic.
All in all, it's not a bad month for the Marlins. First, the MLB confirmed there will be baseball played this season. Now, they have their own beer. Finally, some good news.
