Beer named for Great Lakes Loons cut by team

MIDLAND, Mich. (AP) - A beer developed to celebrate a Michigan minor league baseball team has been cut from the team's home field beverage offerings. The Great Lakes Loons dropped Bay City-based Tri-City Brewing Co. as a vendor at Dow Diamond in Midland. The brewing company's Kevin Peil says it's a "big disappointment" that baseball fans will need to look elsewhere for Loons Summer Ale. Tri-City plans to continue making Loons Summer Ale for sale at other locations. Great Lakes Loons President and General Manager Paul Barbeau says the team had a "really good, supportive relationship" with Tri-City and a distributor for several years, but a change was made in the offseason to switch to a different distributor. The Loons are a Single-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
