HUNTINGTON, West Virginia – Marshall University Athletics has partnered with Country Boy Brewing out of Lexington, KY for a new brew named Herd Country Lager. This craft-brewed American lager has been designed for tailgates and cheering on The Thundering Herd across the state of West Virginia.
Brewed with malted wheat and a touch of Huell Melon hops, this brew carries a stated 100 calories and 3.1 carbs per 12oz serving. Light and refreshing, Herd Country Lager will fit perfectly into the cooler of every fan that bleeds green.
“This is what happens when good people come together,” says Christian Spears, Marshall University Director of Athletics. “Our team and the Country Boy team worked together to finalize something that is truly “For The Herd”. Welcome to Herd Country! Cheers.”
“We are so lucky to find a partner in Marshall University that appreciates a great crafted beer,” says Daniel “DH” Harrison, Co-Owner and Founder of Country Boy Brewing. “We have a couple Marshall alums on our team and cannot wait to hit that first tailgate with a Herd Country Lager.”
Herd Country Lager cans and draft will launch market wide beginning Monday, October 24 just in time for the Homecoming game vs Coastal Carolina on Oct 29.
