PRESS RELEASE – The Winnipeg Goldeyes and Fort Garry Brewing are giving fans a chance to toast the team’s 2012 American Association Championship with limited edition championship cans of Angry Fish Pilsner.
Fort Garry Brewing’s Angry Fish Pilsner will feature a red label with 2012 Champions above the American Association logo. The Angry Fish logo on the can now features a crown with the Goldeyes’ signature G stamped on the front.
“We are a proud supporter of the Goldeyes and this is a unique way for us to salute the team’s championship season,” said Orest Horechko of Fort Garry Brewing.
Building on a partnership that was established in 2003, the Goldeyes and Fort Garry Brewing released the Angry Fish Pilsner back in May and it was a favourite amongst Goldeyes fans that visited Shaw Park this summer. The light-tasting beer was in the works for four years before making its debut.
“The Goldeyes are very proud of the Angry Fish Pilsner that Fort Garry Brewing created,” Goldeyes GM Andrew Collier said. “The championship cans cap off a great first season for the Angry Fish Pilsner and celebrate a great championship team.”
Angry Fish Pilsner in the championship 473 ml cans is currently available in select Manitoba Liquor Mart stores and beer vendors. More stores and vendors will be receiving the cans in the coming days.
