HOUSTON – Twenty bars and restaurants in the Houston area are ready to pour Astros outfielder George Springer's Championship Reserve beer, but they can only serve it if the Astros are able to clinch the World Series title Wednesday evening.
If the Astros win, the team will also be celebrating with the limited-edition beer inside the locker room.
In early October, Springer served as an honorary brewmaster, helping to create the Budweiser Championship Reserve.
Springer visited the Houston brewery and worked alongside Anheuser Busch brewmaster Rich Cooper.
"I love Houston. I love the city and the energy of the fans," Springer said. "Going to the brewery and getting to create a Budweiser reserve brew was an awesome experience that will make it even sweeter to tap those kegs when we win at the end of the long postseason road ahead of us."
"We’re huge fans of George for his tenacity on the field, so we brought him to our Houston brewery to capture his energy for a special collaboration," said Monica Rustgi, vice president of marketing for Budweiser. "Our beer has always been with George and the team during their unique celebrations, and now we’re waiting with excitement to unlock that experience for the entire city."
