April 2018, Tampa, FL
Good news, craft beer lovers – you will now be able to enjoy Free Dive IPA, Unholy Trippel, Independent Pilsner and seasonal offerings from Coppertail along with your peanuts and Cracker Jack at Tropicana Field.
In an agreement with the Tampa Bay Rays, Coppertail beer will be available during home games at a standalone concession booth on the third base inner concourse. Additional Coppertail offerings will be on tap in the Brew Pub and in bottles where other beer is sold. The agreement also gives the Coppertail brand exposure in signage and on the Rays’ radio station, 620 WDAE (95.3 FM).
Kent Bailey, Coppertail’s President, said. “I have been a Rays fan since I moved to Tampa ten years ago, and I’m so proud and happy to see our beer and signage featured prominently at the Trop this year. I’ve always felt like we have a lot in common with the Rays. We’re both underdogs in an industry dominated by Goliaths. Yet we both find ways to scrap and win.”
Coppertail’s availability at Ray’s home games was given an assist by Great Bay distributing who has represented Coppertail in Pinellas since they started selling beer in Tampa Bay. “For the past three years, the people at Tropicana field have made a concerted effort to give fans local, craft beer,” said Clay Yarn, Craft Brand Manager at Great Bay. “Coppertail was available on tap in the Beers of the World Pub, but it’s great they are giving fans what they want by making it available in more locations.”
