Coors Light, in partnership with the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey club, is brewing the first-ever beer made with the actual ice the Stanley Cup Final was played on. They’re calling it Champions Ice.
According to Coors, during the Game 5 final at Amalie Arena, the company “quietly scraped and collected the actual ice from the rink ,” and transported it to their brewery in Golden, Colorado to “craft the game-winning Champions Ice brew.”
Coors says the ice from the arena will be purified using reverse osmosis membrane ultra-filtration technology, a purification process that meets the high Coors Light standards. The ice will then be blended into the limited-edition brew.
Limited-edition Coors Light Champions Ice will be available starting July 12, 2021 at participating Tampa Bay bars, where there will be a limited supply of 32-oz collectable crowlers available as well.
