San Diego-based Mission Brewery has created whole new category of beverage for baseball season: Hard Root Beer. Mission is located next to San Diego’s Petco Park, where the Padres play, so the brewery sees a lot of non-traditional beer drinkers during baseball season. According to a press release on the Full Pint, the new clientele inspired the Mission crew to create something totally different—a malt cocktail that, apparently, tastes like root beer.
Mission has a number of malt cocktails that they serve in their brewery, but the Hard Root Beer is the first to see a bottling. You can pick up a six pack at the brewery now, or wait until it hits national distribution later this year.
