The Parker 400 is proud to announce its new custom branded beer with Southern California’s independent brewing powerhouse Belching Beaver. Known for its Peanut Butter Milk Stout and Deftones Phantom Bride IPA, Belching Beaver will serve as the “Official Craft Beer of The Parker 400” and will be offering a custom branded limited “Parker 400” beer available onsite at The Parker 400 on January 11th during The Parker 400 Off-Road festival downtown Parker, AZ all day as well as select stores in the Parker Area. The collectible can features custom vintage-style artwork as an homage to The Parker 400’s fifty years of off-road racing history.
“Belching Beaver is a part of off-road culture now that they have created a custom beer for The Mint 400 and California 300, and now the Parker 400. This is the perfect beer to celebrate the 50th anniversary with! The best beer in your life is the one you have after crossing the finish line at an off-road race! It’s part of our culture, for the past 50+ years, it has been a tradition at most off-road races. Now we have official Parker 400 finish-line beers! Together with Tom Vogel, one of the founders and avid off-road enthusiast, we chose Beav Light because it is a crisp, clean, and refreshing lager made from the finest ingredients that you can drink all day on the river or in the dirt. We will be handing these to the finishers as they cross the line!” stated Unlimited Off-Road Racing CEO Matt Martelli.
“I have a house on the river and love coming and off-roading here. We know there are a lot of craft beer enthusiasts who off-road and just want good quality American beer. We have a variety of styles of beer from lighter lagers and seltzers to our IPAs and Stouts, there is something for everyone. Honestly, I am just excited to get my UTV out and be able to check out the course during the Poker Run. Looking forward to seeing everybody out there having a good time!” commented Belching Beaver founder and CEO Tom Vogel.
