4ward Pass beer will be launched on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 1 p.m. at the brewery’s Tap Room one week prior to Favre’s jersey induction into the Lambeau Field “Ring of Honor” during the Packers vs. Bears game on Nov. 26.

The 7% ABV India Pale Ale is brewed with Cajun spices and “Warrior” hops to reflect the quarterback’s grit and tenacity as well as his legacy, according to the brewery.

The company says bottles will also be available at craft beer retail outlets the week of Thanksgiving throughout the northeastern Wisconsin, but in limited quantities. Badger State Brewing will only be releasing 44 cases of 4ward Pass. So if you want one of these limited edition collector items, don’t hesitate.

4ward Pass will also be available on draught at select Greater Green Bay area locations.
