MILLDALE, Connecticut – On Saturday October 16, Rentschler Field will be more than just the venue for the UConn Huskies vs. the Yale Bulldogs, it will be the location for the debut of Husky Hops, a delicious new hazy IPA which is the result of a partnership between the University of Connecticut Division of Athletics and Kinsmen Brewing Co. of Milldale, CT.
“Husky Hops is a great tribute to our Husky spirit,” said David Benedict, UConn Director of Athletics. “We are particularly proud of being able to partner with a growing local company and participating in an industry which is growing throughout Connecticut and the region.”
Husky Hops will be available at concession stands at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field (including special kiosks located in the UConn Alumni section of the stadium) as well as a kiosk at the entrance to the Gampel Pavilion and at concession stands at the XL Center and across multiple sports, including baseball, soccer and hockey. Additionally, the new brand will be sold at all on-campus facilities that sell beer.
Former UConn Huskies Football Co-Captain and Kinsmen manager, Jeff Delucia, was instrumental in forming this new partnership. “It’s an honor to be part of such a great celebration of Husky spirit with such a phenomenal IPA brewed by Kinsmen,” DeLucia said.
