Eau Claire, Wis. – The Eau Claire Express front office announced today the addition of an all-new, branded draft beer to its concession lineup for the 2016 season. The team is excited to partner with Lucette Brewing Company in Menomonie, Wis. to feature a unique beer recipe for fans at Carson Park this season. The Express partnered also with local design company Satellite Six to create an identity for the beer.

The beer, a Kölsch named The Kurve, will be available exclusively at Carson Park and Lucette Woodfire Eatery during the 2016 Northwoods League season. By definition, a Kölsch is clear, all-barley pale ale similar to a standard German pale lager.

“We’re excited to partner with a great local brewery on the creation of our first branded Express beer,” stated Express CFO and Part-Owner Andy Neborak. “When working with Lucette to determine a type of beer fans would like, we wanted something that would be a refreshing summer beer and would appeal to many different demographics. We were able to accomplish this while also providing a type of beer that has never been offered before at Express games.”

The Express begin their twelfth season of play in the Northwoods League at Carson Park next Tuesday versus the Rochester Honkers. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. in that contest, with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. Season tickets, 5-Game Packs and single-game tickets are on sale now. The all-new 5-Game Pack includes a reserved ticket along with food and beverage for three innings for five of the biggest promotional nights of the 2016 season all for only $45.00. All tickets can be purchased by calling the Express office at 715-839-7788 or by stopping at the downtown office at 102 E. Grand Ave.
