Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, NY and Anchor Brewing in San Francisco, CA have agreed to place a friendly wager on the outcome of tonight’sMLB National League Wild Card game between the New York Mets and the San Francisco Giants. Sporting blue and orange, Ommegang President Doug Campbell challenged Anchor’s President Matt Davenport this morning on Twitter. Matt accepted, terms were drawn up, and a tweet-handshake sealed the deal.

The winner will send beer and a jersey of the winning team to the losing brewing, and the loser, decked out in said uniform, will serve the winning brewery’s beer in their tasting room. The losing brewmaster will also travel to the winning brewery to brew a collaboration beer in honor of the winning team and city. The beer will be available in time for Opening Day 2017.

“This game promises to be an epic matchup between 2 great teams & two great states,” says Campbell. “I look forward to seeing pictures of Matt serving our beer to Anchor fans in San Francisco. Here in Cooperstown, our roots run deep in both the national pastime and our home state, and we are exciting to raise our glasses to the Mets’ victory tonight.”

“Baseball and San Francisco have gone hand in hand for more than 100 years. With roots that date back to the California Gold Rush, Anchor has been intrinsically tied to the city, enjoyed by Giants fans for decades,” says Davenport, decked out in orange and black. “We look forward to sharing our beer with Ommegang fans in Cooperstown, as we send some tasty West Coast [read: Best Coast] brews to be enjoyed in their taproom. It’s an even year and we all know what that means.” 

The Wild Card game will be played at Citi Field in New York City tonight, October 5, beginning at 8:08 PM EST. Regardless of the outcome of the game, the true winners will be fans of craft beer everywhere, who will get to taste a new collaboration beer from the two breweries regardless of who actually tastes victory this evening.
