five-tool player (noun)
a term used by baseball scouts to describe a player who has a well-rounded offensive and defensive game; can hit for a high average, for power, runs the bases well, throws well and fields well.


Through a partnership between K181 Enterprises, LLC and Rustic Road Brewing Co., the Northwoods League is excited to introduce fans 21 years of age and up to a craft beer developed to be showcased at Northwoods League ballparks. Five Tool ale is available at select NWL parks and the tap room at Rustic Road Brewing Co. in Kenosha, Wis.  We are also excited that several bars and restaurants in our markets are starting to offer Five Tool as well.


Like the rare and valuable five-tool player, Five Tool ale has what it takes to turn heads. An American cream ale – Five Tool is classic Midwestern Americana. The recipe features 6-row American barley and flaked maize, which adds a pleasant sweetness and texture. The result is an amazingly drinkable beer, sure to be a top pick at the taps.
