The Kalamazoo Growlers are thrilled to announce a multiyear partnership agreement with Bell’s Brewery. Bell’s Brewery has agreed to become the official craft beer provider of the expansion Kalamazoo Growlers franchise.

Growlers President, Brian Colopy stated, “We are thrilled to partner with a staple of the Kalamazoo community such as Bell’s.  It’s another big piece to the puzzle in bringing our fans the best atmosphere possible at Growlers baseball games.”

Fans will now be able to enjoy discounted Bell’s beers every Tuesday night the Growlers are in town.  Furthermore, the Growlers and Bell’s Brewery will celebrate every home-run struck by the hometown team by “ringing the Bell’s bell”, which will allow fans to purchase half-off Bell’s beers for the duration of that current inning.  

Bell’s Brewery will also be providing two lucky fans with an exclusive experience package during each year of their partnership with the Growlers.  Details of the 2014 Experience will be released at a later date, but could include a private batting practice session with the team, or all-inclusive tickets to the Northwoods League All-Stare Game.  For those not fortunate enough to win this package, Bell’s will be sponsoring a premium giveaway item during each season as well.  Further details and an exact date of the Bell’s giveaway item were not made immediately available at this time. 

Bell’s Brewery has also claimed rights over a new branded area of the ballpark, entitled the “Bell’s Bear Cave”. Located down the right-field line, this indoor/outdoor suite will provide fans with the ultimate location to host parties, business meetings, special events, and more.  Access to this exceptional area includes a premium ballpark buffet, and of course – a variety of Bell’s Brewery beers. The Bell’s Bear Cave is already booked for multiple dates for the upcoming 2014 season.  Companies and groups interested in booking a night out in the Bell’s Bear Cave can contact one of the Group Sales Executives today by calling (269)-492-9966.

The Kalamazoo Growlers are a member of the finest developmental league for elite college baseball players, the Northwoods League.
