The Green Bay Phoenix and Badger State Brewing have teamed up to launch Phoenix Rising Red Lager, the official beer of the Green Bay Phoenix. The new red lager, officially unveiled Tuesday afternoon (July 11th) at Badger State Brewing, will be in stores beginning this week. Proceeds from beer sales come directly back to support the Green Bay Athletics Department.
“Badger State Brewing is incredibly excited to partner with the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay in the creation of Phoenix Rising Red Lager,'” said Andrew Fabry, President and Founder of Badger State Brewing. “This is an incredibly exciting time for UWGB, their athletic programs, and the campus as a whole. We couldn’t be more proud as Green Bay natives to bring more people together via this outstanding beer we created.”
Phoenix Rising, which was crafted by the Badger State Brewing staff, is an easy-drinking red lager that is 4.5% ABV and great for all occasions. The can design features Green Bay Phoenix branding, including the popular Phoenix logo that is an ode to the former greats that have suited up for the Phoenix. The beer is officially licensed through CLC, Green Bay’s licensing partner and Badger State Brewing, a proud partner of the Green Bay Phoenix.
“Partnering on this beer project made so much sense as Badger State Brewing has grown a phenomenal brand right in our backyard and throughout most of Wisconsin,” said Associate AD for Development Alan Savage. “This collaboration will only help strengthen the Phoenix brand and engage the great communities through Northeast Wisconsin and beyond. I am enormously thankful to Andrew and the team at Badger State for being so excited to create Phoenix Rising. It has been a year in the making, but we know that Phoenix family, fans, and friends will be enjoying Phoenix Rising and supporting Phoenix student-athletes for many years to come!”
“This collaboration with Badger State Brewing is one of the most exciting things I’ve been a part of during my time here at Green Bay,” said Associate AD for External Operations Sean Daniels. “Not only is this an incredible way to build the Green Bay Phoenix brand in Northeast Wisconsin and beyond, it helps to support our student-athletes with every sale. I want to send a huge ‘Thank You’ to Badger State Brewing, this is an extremely impactful partnership for our University.”
