Cubs Renew Beer Deal Which Began in the 50's
After some concern by fans, Pabst Brewing Company's Old Style beer will be back at Wrigley Field through 2013. Old Style has been available to fans at Wrigley since 1950.
"For more than six decades Cubs fans have been drinking Old Style beer at Wrigley Field and it has always been part of the game day experience at this legendary ballpark," said Daren Metropoulos, co-owner of Pabst Brewing Company. "It was important for us at Pabst Brewing Company to continue this long-standing tradition."
To celebrate, Dean Metropoulos, chairman of Pabst Brewing Company, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch next Friday, and 62 lucky fans - one for each year of the partnership - will be randomly selected to receive Cubs Cash and Old Style gifts.
"Cubs fans have grown accustomed to enjoying a refreshing Old Style while catching Cubs baseball at Wrigley Field," said Cubs owner and board member Todd Ricketts. "I'm excited as a fan of both organizations that the Old Style tradition at Wrigley Field will continue."
"The Old Style and Cubs partnership is one of the longest running in professional sports," added Evan Metropoulos, co-owner of Pabst Brewing Company. "We're extremely excited about continuing to support the community and the city's cherished sports franchise."
