Summit Brewing Co. & Minnesota Twins Announce Elevated Partnership
It’s time to play ball!
As venues and stadiums across the state begin to reopen, the Minnesota Twins return to Target Field on Thursday, April 8 for their home opener against the Seattle Mariners.
But they won’t be the only ones.
Summit Brewing Co. is proud to announce we will also be returning, but now as an Official Craft Beer of the Minnesota Twins!
That’s right! Thanks to a new multiyear, elevated partnership between the two iconic Minnesota brands, Summit Brewing will have a greater presence at Target Field and with the Twins organization.
Starting in the 2021 season, Summit Brewing Co. will be an “Official Craft Beer” of the Minnesota Twins. Summit will also take over the bar in the left outfield, located on the second level next to the Skyline Deck and Town Ball Tavern. At the start of the season, Target Field will have a heavy focus on packaged beer offerings and the new space will serve 16oz cans of Summit Extra Pale Ale, Summit Sága IPA, Summit Slugfest Juicy IPA and soon to be available Summit Cabin Crusher Kölsch-Style Ale with Lime. In addition, you will be able to find 16oz cans of Extra Pale Ale & Sága IPA at all gameday concession locations throughout the ballpark.
“Summit Brewing Co. and the Minnesota Twins are two iconic teams that are deeply integrated in not only the Twin Cities community, but the state of Minnesota and surrounding areas. The Twins’ mission mirrors ours – having a strong team that lives, learns and engages with its community,” Summit Founder & President Mark Stutrud said. “We’re a strong and trusted brand and we recognize the Twins in the same light. It’s thrilling to be able to support them at a higher level and it really demonstrates a deep faith the Twins organization has in Summit Brewing.”
This three-year agreement also allows Summit the rights to use the Twins trademarks across Summit’s multi-state territory. Summit will also have a presence inside Target Field with branding on the stadium’s video boards, outfield pads and more.
“In looking at all of this, I think of my parents. I look back at when I started Summit. They would have been amazed because none of us would have ever thought that Summit Brewing Co. would be at this level,” Stutrud said.
So, come root, root, root for your home teams – the Minnesota Twins and Summit Brewing Co. – at the Summit Brewing Pub at Target Field this summer!
