WORCESTER — Wormtown Brewery has been named the official hometown brewery of the Worcester Red Sox and will produce a specially-brewed beer in honor of the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate.
The beer is called “Welcome to Worcester, $1.25,” a spin on Adam Sandler’s bit “Toll Booth Willy” about a Worcester toll taker collecting a $1.25 toll.
“For us, Wormtown has always been about quality and local,” said Ben Roesch, brewmaster/founder of Wormtown Brewery. “Putting the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate in a brand new downtown ballpark is as local and quality as it gets. Our ‘Welcome to Worcester $1.25’ commemorative beer will be a classic Vienna lager featuring an amber color, light caramel sweetness, and clean crisp finish. The fact that a $1.25 donation from each pint will go to the team’s charitable foundation makes it even better. This beer will pair amazingly well with a Coney Island Hot Dog, a slice of Table Talk apple pie, and a side of Triple-A Baseball.”
