Now Batting: Rally Drum Red Ale!

The bang of the drum. The roar of the crowd. The crack of the can! Rally Drum Red Ale is back for another summer of bleacher seat views and extra inning brews! 

With a tip of the cap to Tribe superfan and bleacher seat percussionist John J. Adams, our Red Ale fields a double header of bitter hop and roasted malt flavors. Available in 16 oz. cans and draft, the power-hitting flavors of Rally Drum Red Ale will be available at Progressive Field and throughout Ohio beginning April 2. Rally Drum Red Ale is on-deck for a 16 oz. 12-Pack can and draft release in select GLBC distribution markets later this summer.

Slide into our Rally Drum Red Ale artwork to find a row of vintage seats from Cleveland Stadium, where dedicated Cleveland baseball fan John J. Adams first hauled his drum in 1973. Adams’ steady rhythm amplified the effect of fans banging their chairs during the game’s dramatic moments. Even after the team moved to a new stadium, John followed with his drum and so did his home team’s heartbeat.
