Crown Royal Needs You To Help Out Our Military

I really love how Crown Royal look to help out our men and women in the military. Last year, Crown Royal expanded their generosity efforts and launched The Crown Royal Purple Bag Project with country music superstar Thomas Rhett, an effort to pack 1 million care packages by the end of 2020 for active-duty service members serving overseas.

Crown Royal was back this year at The 53rd Annual CMA Awards with Thomas Rhett to give Veteran and singer-songwriter Jerri the surprise of a lifetime. Jerri thought she was in Nashville to help support The Crown Royal Purple Bag Project, but little did she know that the brand and Thomas Rhett had more plans in store: an invite to country music’s biggest night! Jerri also took the stage last night with co-host Reba to encourage fans 21+ to help Crown Royal reach its 1 million packed bag goal.

You can support The Crown Royal Purple Bag Project as we head into the most generous time of the year. Fans 21+ can text PURPLEBAG to 50155 and follow Crown Royal on Twitter for more details.

Celebrate International Stout Day With Guinness

Today, on International Stout Day 2019, the brewers at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore announced the next beer from a line of new barrel-aged beers at the brewery – the Guinness Stock Ale Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels.

The newest beer is the endgame of a Guinness Barleywine and a Guinness Imperial Stout – both brewed in Baltimore and aged in Bulleit Bourbon barrels before being blended together. The high gravity stout and malty barleywine lead to a hearty and full-bodied beer with notes of nutty chocolate, raisins, roasted barley and sweet dark fruit with an ABV of 10%. Aromas of vanilla, coffee, stone fruit and ripe berries come off of this intense and luxuriant stock ale.

Guinness Stock Ale Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels is available on top, beginning today at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore and can be found on shelves at specialty beer stores across the U.S. in 4-packs of 11.2oz bottles for a limited time beginning November 15th for a suggested retail price of $19.99.

This limited release is sure to be the perfect gift for any beer lover this holiday season and surely the best one for gatherings with friends and family.

Bud Light Honors Beer Hero Jeff Adams

The legendary Jeff Adams, aka Bud Light Guy, and our personal World Series Hero, saved his beers with the play of the game during Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday. ICYMI, Jeff bounced a two-run homer off his chest without losing a single drop of the two Bud Lights in his hands. Mind. Blown.

After the moment went viral, Bud Light wanted to recognize Jeff and his valiant efforts with a nationally-televised commercial highlighting his epic act of athleticism. The commercial is set to air tonight nationally on FOX Sports during Game 6.

Andy Goeler, VP of Bud Light shared: “We were so inspired by the athleticism of Jeff Adams, we knew we had to reward him for his act of heroism in not spilling one drop of his Bud Lights. This is the first time we’ve featured a Bud Light fan in a nationally-televised commercial, and he’s the perfect guy to represent baseball and Bud Light fans across the country.”

That’s not all, Jeff will be at the game sitting in the same tonight, wearing his custom Bud Light “Always Save the Beer” t-shirt, which Bud Light has produced exclusively for him to commemorate the moment.
