The Carolina Mudcats (High A; Carolina League) will adopt an alternate moniker to honor parent club Milwaukee Brewers this season, playing as the Carolina Micro Brews in four games. The first Carolina Micro Brews game is scheduled for Saturday, April 13, and will feature a Micro Brews replica jersey giveaway for the first 1,200 fans.
“We’re so excited to introduce this new Brewers-inspired look for the Mudcats this season” said Director of Promotions and Fan Experience, Patrick Ennis. “This new look maintains the Mudcats brand, but also recognizes our parent organization, the Milwaukee Brewers. It ties in locally with North Carolina being home to so many microbreweries and a great hub for the craft beer culture.”
The all-new Micro Brews moniker and brand features a blue and yellow color scheme designed after the Brewers. The new cap logo features an interlocking “M” and “B” logo for Micro Brews, while the jersey logo reads Micro Brews with a hop flower dotting the letter “i” in Micro. The front of the jersey also features the Mudcats logo and uniform number. The left-sleeve also features the interlocking M and B logo placed on a yellow and blue barrel, as well as blue and yellow piping along the edges of the sleeves.
