The Omaha Storm Chasers (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) are holding an unusual promotion to launch the 2013 season: a name-the-beer contest.
The Storm Chasers are partnering with Nebraska Brewing Company — a fine, fine purveyor of potent potables — on a special brew sold at Werner Park, and the team is asking the public to help name it. Nice combo of two things most baseball fans like: beer and a name-the-thing contest.
All beer names should be submitted to email@example.com
The top five suggestions will be up for a vote at the team’s St. Patrick’s Day-themed “O’pen House” on March 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It will feature a revamped Storm Front Team Store and the opportunity to name and taste the new Storm Chasers beer.
“This year’s St. Patrick’s Day themed O’pen House is the first of many events at Werner Park that will make the 45th season one to remember,” said Martie Cordaro, President and General Manager of the Storm Chasers. “Fans should not miss their opportunity to purchase season tickets and new merchandise from the redesigned Storm Front Team Store while tasting our soon-to-be-named Storm Chasers beer.”
The O’pen House will be the first chance for fans to purchase their new Storm Chasers items for the upcoming season. The redesigned Storm Front Team Store’s new look allows it to hold more than five times the merchandise and every fan in attendance will have the chance to “Spin for Green” to win store discounts as well as free prizes. Featured that day will be a limited edition green “SC Shamrock” t-shirt.
