Homer Simpson’s favorite day, National Beer Day is, doh!, today.
To celebrate, Budweiser is unveiling a new Texas Ranger can in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for the 2017 baseball season.
To feature the can’s launching and to celebrate April 7 as National Beer Day, Budweiser will host a pre-game tailgate tonight at Globe Life Park in Arlington prior to the Rangers’ 7:05 p.m. game with the Oakland A’s tonight. The tailgate will take place on the North Lawn at the corner of Ballpark Way and Road to Six Flags from 5:00-7:00 p.m. The Rangers’ team cans will be available for purchase and complimentary samples of the Official Rangers Burger will be given away to the first 400 fans, 21 years of age and older.
In addition, the artist who designed the Texas Rangers can, Sam Barboza of Austin, will attend tonight’s tailgate. He will be live screen-printing his artwork onto free special edition posters which can be signed by the artist. Budweiser commissioned Barboza to create artwork for the can that featured a custom-made, team inspired design
The limited edition cans may be purchased in the DFW area wherever Budweiser, which is the Official Beer of the Texas Rangers, is sold. A large replica of the Rangers’ team can, is also on display at Globe Life Park in the Budweiser Bowtie located in Vandergriff Plaza
