Keegan Bradley, Graeme McDowell and Freddie Jacobson aren't just competitors at a PGA Tour venue near you. They're also friends -- and now -- partners in a new business endeavor... something called "Golf Beer."
According to a USA Today report, the threesome has joined forces , "to create some new options for the 19th hole."
From the report:
With the help of Florida-based brewer The Brew Hub, PGA tour members Graeme McDowell, Keegan Bradley and Freddie Jacobson are teeing up a line of new craft beers targeting golfers.
The three beers -- G-Mac's Celtic Style Pale Ale, Keegan Bradley's New England Style Lager and Freddie Jacobson's Scandinavian Style Blonde Ale -- will initially be available this month on draft at select Florida golf courses and on-site restaurants and country clubs. The beer will be available in cans in December and bottles during the first quarter of 2015. Distribution will expand to grocery stores, bars and other restaurants in Florida and then to other regions.
Here's a video about the three new brews:
According to the report, each of the beers is between 4.5 percent and 5 percent alcohol by volume. The Blonde Ale is a light ale made with European hops, while the New England lager uses North American hops. McDowell, a native of Northern Ireland who like the other two has a home in Florida, says his beer -- the Celtic Style Pale Ale -- is "the punchiest of the three. But it is very approachable and very conducive to drinking a few on the golf course or one in the clubhouse."
