Beer options at TicketReturn.com Field are about to become even broader, as the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (High A; Carolina League) will start selling growlers and buckets on April 29. As a result of their partnership with American Tap House, the Pelicans will be the first team in professional baseball to make buckets and growlers available at the ballpark.
Craft beer is becoming a hot item at ballparks now, and the Pelicans have generally been at the forefront of the trend. In 2013, they added Pelicans Summer Tide to their offerings, making them part of a select group of clubs to carry a team-branded ale. TicketReturn.com Field has also become known for its extensive variety of craft beer.
“I am looking forward to seeing beer buckets and growlers throughout the stadium and community this season,” said Pelicans vice president of business development Ryan Moore. “These type of offerings would not be possible without the great partnerships we have with the American Tap House and Better Brands. It’s great when multiple partners can come together with one goal in mind: To make the fan experience at TicketReturn.Com Field the best in Minor League Baseball.”
The souvenir buckets, featuring the Pelicans and American Tap House logos, include any five of the Pelicans’ wide assortment of 12 oz. craft beer for just $30. Souvenir beer growlers are only $25, with fans again being able to select from the craft beer lineup at TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark. Growlers can be refilled for $20 until alcohol sales end at the conclusion of the seventh inning.
“We are very excited to partner with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans and help bring the love of craft beer to the fans at TicketReturn.com Field every Tuesday night,” said American Tap House regional director Stephanie Atwood. “We look forward to sharing our passion for craft beer and celebrating great friends, great food and great beer with all our fans this summer at Broadway at the Beach.”
The Pelicans are also offering fans the option to pre-purchase a To-Go Growler that they can pick up once they leave the ballpark.
“We’re excited to expand on our partnership with the Pelicans and offer these new products to fans,” said Better Brands president Mike Reilly. “The ability to take home and responsibly enjoy one of the more than 20 craft beers served at the stadium in a souvenir growler is a great way to extend the fan experience beyond the ballpark.”
All buckets and growlers will be available for every Pelicans home game in Hops Heaven, next to the Clark & Addison Grille and the new Rita Bar just inside Gate 1.
