Belching Beaver brews for The Parker 400

Oceanside-based brewery cans its light lager as the official beer of popular Arizona off-road race

The Parker 400 is proud to announce its new custom-branded beer with Southern California’s independent brewing powerhouse Belching Beaver Brewery. 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 11 during The Parker 400 Off-Road festival in downtown Parker, Arizona, all-day as well as at select stores in the Parker Area. The collectible can features custom vintage-style artwork as an homage to The Parker 400’s 50 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,” says Unlimited Off-Road Racing CEO Matt Martelli. “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! Now we have official Parker 400 finish-line beers!”

Working with Belching Beaver owner Tom Vogel, an avid off-road enthusiast, the event organizers selected the Oceanside-based company’s Beav Light as that finish-line beer because of the lager’s crisp, clean, refreshing profile, stating it’s perfect for drinking all day on the river or in the dirt. The beers will be handed off to racers as they cross the finish line.

“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,” says Vogel. “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, and seeing everybody out there having a good time.”
