The Sarge says step up! Canberra’s baseball fans will get the chance to name Bentspoke’s new beer range premiering at MIT Ballpark soon.

‘BentSpoke Brewing Company’ is calling on Canberra baseball fans to step up to the plate and find a name for its new beer that will be on tap at the Canberra Cavalry‘s MIT Ballpark this season.

The Cavalry will be adding Bentspoke’s award-winning craft beers to its offering, in a partnership that includes the specially brewed beer and a new bar at MIT Ballpark.

Cavalry General Manager Dan Amodio said the club was excited to kick off its partnership with BentSpoke this year, and not just because BentSpoke’s orange Crankshaft cans matched its jerseys perfectly.

“Baseball is always better with a cold beer in your hand and I’m excited that we’ll be adding BentSpoke to the taps at MIT Ballpark,” he said.

“Plus, their brewers will be brewing a brand new beer exclusively for Cavalry fans and, judging from how good the rest of their beers are, I’m sure our fans will love it.”

BentSpoke co-owner and head brewer Richard Watkins is calling on Cavalry and BentSpoke fans to help find a name for the exclusive brew.

“We’d love to hear ideas from the fans as we name their beer,” Richard said.

“Anyone with a good idea should email it to before the end of October and we’ll run a poll of the best suggestions”.

Mr Amodio said the Cavalry was also working with BentSpoke on building a new container bar down the first base line in an area it’s named the ‘Canberra Containers Village’.

“It’ll be a cool new destination at the ballpark where fans can grab a beer, listen to some music, and enjoy the game,” he said.

“We are both passionate about being part of the Canberra community and I’m hoping we can bring Canberra beer and Canberra baseball together for years to come.”

The Canberra Cavalry’s first home games at MIT Ballpark are against Sydney Blue Sox from 23-26 November.
