CUSTOM BEER OF THE NORTHWOODS LEAGUE
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 is available seasonally at select Northwoods League ballparks and surrounding markets.
Like the rare and valuable five-tool player, this American cream ale has what it takes to turn heads. The recipe features 6-row American barley and flaked maize, which adds a pleasant sweetness and texture. The result is an amazingly drinkable beer.
We are pleased to partner with Broken Bat Brewing Co., out of Milwaukee, WI, to brew Five Tool. They work with a network of distributors to supply our teams and other retail outlets throughout the Midwest.
