Watched much of the press conference they did announcing it. Not only was Camby there with the White Lion folks to announce the collaboration, but also UMass representatives (including UMass Dining), the Basketball Hall of Fame, and the Mayor of Springfield. This was a BIG deal.


The UMass Dining piece is important because.... the beer will be at the Mullins!!!!!

In terms of big deals when we talk about the school, that fact alone is pretty cool and quite a departure from what we've come to expect as fans.

That would be a cool as hell selling piece for the media as well. Come to UMass to watch a basketball game and have a UMass branded local beer featuring a UMass legend.

I went and they did a good job with it. Lot's of speeches, including John Doleva from the BB Hall of Fame. Marcus is eligible this year but no promises were made. I got to taste it and it was mildly hoppy. I thought it was good. They did say that there is more to come but couldn't be specific. Jason Germain was there as were many other UMass folks (you can see their names in the articles posted above).

Got to chat briefly with Dwayne Early. He was a walk-on in 1999-2000. He is now the Athletic Director for the Springfield Public Schools. He worked his way up from teacher to administrator and now this. Very proud of this UMass Alum.

From the Gazette Article. Check out the link in jj's post for the full story.
The brew was four months in the making and the result of a partnership among Camby, White Lion Brewing, Springfield basketball legend Travis Best, UMass’ Berthiaume Center for Entrepreneurship, and others. Camby met White Lion owner Ray Berry at Best’s Hall of Fame enshrinement party in September not long after his statue was unveiled outside the Mullins Center
.

It's got a 4.06/5 on Untapped after 29 check-ins so far. I wonder if any of you all have rated it so far?
