Officials from Macon-based Fall Line Brewing Co. will debut a limited run of Ol’ Toby Easy Ale — the official beer of Mercer Athletics — on Sept. 9 at Five Star Stadium. The 20th-ranked Mercer football team is scheduled to make its 2023 debut in its home stadium against Morehead State with kickoff slated for 7 p.m.
Fall Line Brewing Co., a longtime supporter of Mercer Athletics, made the announcement in collaboration with the Mercer Athletic Foundation, which will benefit with the sale of every can of the brewery’s newest ale. Ten cents of every sale will be donated in support of the athletic foundation’s Champions Fund Endowment, which covers championship-related expenses of the department’s 18 varsity athletic teams.
“I am proud to be a Bear supporting other Bears,” said owner and Mercer alumna Kaitlynn Kressin. “To be able to partner with Mercer on a co-branded beer has been a goal since launching Fall Line Brewing Co., and I am looking forward to our fan base enjoying the product.”
