Cougars reveal name of specialty brew

GENEVA – The Kane County Cougars, with the help of their fans and social media followers, have announced the name for the organization’s specialty Cougars craft beer: Raging Cougar Ale.

The name of the specialty-made brew, created by Warrenville-based Two Brothers Brewing Company, was chosen by fans in a beer-naming campaign through the Cougars’ social media channels.

The beer is the first of its kind as the Cougars are the first organization in the 16-team Midwest League to feature its own branded beer, according to a news release.

“For this beer to be the first of its kind in baseball circles is truly unique, and we are thrilled with the response and excitement by our fans towards the final product and name,” said Cougars owner Dr. Bob Froehlich in the release.

Last week, the Cougars beer-naming campaign allowed fans to vote on one of three pre-selected beer finalist names – Grand Slam Ale, Home Run Ale and Raging Cougar Ale – or submit their own beer name to be considered by Cougars staff.

Best described as a light and hoppy pale ale, golden in color with a nutty, caramel malt flavor, Raging Cougar Ale will be available and on tap at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark for Cougars games beginning opening night on Thursday, April 9; at the Two Brothers Tap House in Warrenville and its Round House in Aurora; Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks; and Two Brothers’ new Tap House and Brewery Restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona.
