Bombers cheers to renewal with Colonial Brewing Company
Essendon Football Club is pleased to announce it has extended its partnership with Colonial Brewing Company for a further two years.
Colonial Brewing Company will continue as the Official Beer and Cider Partner of the Bombers until at least the end of 2020.
The Australian craft brewery will support the Club’s events throughout the 2019 and 2020 seasons respectively, including the annual Grand Final Comedy Debate and the prestigious Crichton Medal.
In support of the partnership, Colonial Brewing will release a revamped Bomber Beer in time for the commencement of the 2019 home and away season, available to all members and supporters.
Essendon Chief Commercial Officer Justin Rodski said the Club was pleased continue its partnership with Colonial Brewing Company, who boast venues in both Port Melbourne and Margaret River in Western Australia.
“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Colonial Brewing Company, a relationship that we truly value,” Rodski said.
“There is something unique being the only AFL club with an independent, Australian owned craft beer company as a partner. We know this partnership will continue to deliver our members, supporters and guests a wonderful choice of fine craft beers and cider at our home games and functions throughout next season and beyond.
“Colonial Brewing will extend its support to the Bomber faithful, with great deals and offers over the next two years, the key to which is creating a true home-away-from-home at the Brewery in Port Melbourne for our fans and members to gather for interstate games.
“We are very appreciative of the genuine partnership that we have formed with Colonial Brewing Company and thank them for their ongoing support of Essendon.”
Essendon and Colonial Brewing will be giving away double passes to the Essendon Chairman’s Function in Round 2 of the 2019 season against St Kilda. To be in the running, purchase a slab of Bomber Beer from participating outlets between December 17 and February 15.
General Manager Colonial Brewing Company Lawrence Dowd said he was delighted to continue the partnership with the Bombers.
“We are really excited to extend our special partnership with Essendon Football Club,” Dowd said.
“AFL is ingrained into the Melbourne culture so we are pleased to be aligned and part of such an iconic club bringing new offers to their members and supporters.”
