This Saturday, June 7, 7 Seas Brewing releases its Life Jacket Session IPA at an epic venue: Cheney Stadium, the home of the Tacoma Rainiers. Join the brewery at the ballpark when the Rainiers take on the Albuquerque Isotopes at 5:05 p.m. The beer will be available at several locations around the stadium. Who knows, the 7 Seas crew might even have a couple surprises up their sleeves.
And the cat is now officially out of the bag. I am honored to be “Washington’s Craft Beer Ambassador” and to be throwing out the first pitch at Saturday’s game. I would describe myself as a scrappy right-hander with a side-arm delivery and a natural curveball. As if! I promise to do my best and not embarrass the entire craft beer industry. I have deep Tacoma roots. I was born there, as were my three sisters and brother. So I’ve got some family pride on the line. Again, I am honored and humble by this opportunity.
Here’s the press release from 7 Seas Brewing.
