NEWS RELEASE
BARRIE BAYCATS BASEBALL CLUB
*************************
Now that the 2022 season is fast approaching and the weather is getting warmer, the Barrie Baycats Baseball Club and Collingwood Brewery have collaborated to produce and distribute a "Baycats Brew" branded beer to licensees across Simcoe County.
 
Baycats Brew is a 4.4 per cent Bavarian-style lager that is light, golden and refreshing. Packaged unfiltered for optimal flavour and perfect for the deck, dock, or at the ballpark. Baycats Brew will be offered in 30L and 50L Kegs for licensed establishment as well as “tall boys.” The Baycats Brew can be purchased for consumption at participating dine-in establishments, retail bottle shops as well enjoyed at the ballpark on game day.
 
"We are beyond excited to collaborate with the Barrie Baycats to produce their very own Baycats Lager,” said Kyle Weston of Collingwood Brewery. “Partnering with the Baycats to do this beer and other sponsorship opportunities was a no-brainer for us and will be a long winning relationship that the Collingwood Brewery and Barrie Baycats will benefit from."

“I am truly excited for our fans, our sponsors and the establishments supporting our brew and everyone within the Baycats family,” said Baycats president Josh Matlow. “This is something we can all enjoy together, all while supporting local. The Collingwood Brewery's support and passion on this adventure not only embodies the local aspect, but truly matches our energy on bringing all of Simcoe County together as a supportive community.

"It's a perfect marriage to bring the art of local beer to the fans and into the community through participating local establishments.”

Board chair of the Baycats, Chris Gariepy, stated: “How exciting this initiative is for our fans to enjoy this quality brewed product during the 2022 season of baseball in Simcoe County. A quality team partnered with a quality product.”
