Coors Light Makes Moves

 

Coors Light has a busy season ahead. The brand has announced they have officially become the first-ever official beer sponsor of ESPN’s “College GameDay Built by the Home Depot.” Intending to gain a younger (legal) drinking demographic, this seems to be the perfect place to start. Keep your eyes peeled for the Coors Light logo being displayed during the most popular college gameday pregame show, filmed live all over the country every Saturday morning during football season. “Coors Light Saturday Selections,” will now be featured each show as a segment where each host of the show claims their picks for the day. And with the tagline “The Official Beer of Saturday Morning,” this looks like a whole new beginning for Coors Light.

It doesn’t just stop at football. This Halloween, Coors Light is Trick-or-treating for a cause. Look out for the new freaky festive aluminum sporting a pumpkin whos nose turns blue when it’s cold. Each sale will generate donations to St. Jude. Cheers Coors!

Helltown Brewery Turns It Up a Notch with Local Pittsburgh Musician

When beer and music come together it is a beautiful thing. Luckily for the Greater Pittsburgh Area, local Pittsburgh musician, Byron Nash, and Helltown Brewing, an independent craft brewery (in Mt. Pleasant and Export Pennsylvania) are joining forces to reintroduce BLG METAL, a west coast style IPA.

The duo originally paired together to create a collaboration for Fresh Fest in 2018 — the nation’s first Black brew festival. This year Helltown Brewing and Nash are returning to the festival with excitement, stating, “We are participating in Fresh Fest again this year and there will be additional announcements to follow in the upcoming months, but we enjoyed last year’s BLQ METAL collaboration with Byron so much that we decided to revisit it independent of this year’s event,”

The pairing is promising to take everything up a notch and improve upon what it set in motion last year. As for what you can expect from BLQ METAL, brewer, Pat Harris teased, ““BLQ Metal 2.0 is a west coast style IPA, 6.5% ABV, golden-straw color, hopped with Simcoe, Centennial, Chinook and Galaxy. Bitterness is present but not aggressive, light bodied with a semi-dry finish. Aroma is citrus fruit with some piney/grass that carries through the flavor with a little earthiness in the finish . . . an old school IPA with the bitterness dialed back just a bit.”

Thirsty yet? This year’s rendition of BLQ METAL debuts at 4 PM on Friday, June 7th at the Federal Galley on Pittsburgh’s North Shore with a live performance by Byron Nash to follow later the day from 7 PM to 9 PM.

There will be additional events scheduled throughout the summer. To keep up with Byron Nash and the BLQ METAL collaboration you can follow the pair at: @Byron Nash/guitarist (Facebook), @byron_nash412 (Instagram), and @bnastynash (Twitter).
