SUNRISE – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today that a new branded destination will be opening within the BB&T Center (@TheBBTCenter) for Panthers Games and select concerts. The Miami Brewing Co. Beer Garden will be located on the Suite level at the front of the building overlooking Pantherland.

It will offer craft beers and events including live music from Big City Band on Saturday, Dec. 28th as the Florida Panthers host the Detroit Red Wings. The Grand Opening ceremony will be held prior to the game and will include a ribbon cutting as well as tastings throughout the evening at the in-arena bar and meet-up location.

“Having a location like this in the building allows our fans to experience the best of both worlds at a hockey game with live game action and a brewery atmosphere to meet up with friends between periods and before and after games,” said President and CEO Michael R. Yormark (@PanthersYormark).

The Beer Garden incorporates local flavors and attitudes never before seen in the beer or sport's world, such as Big Rod Coconut Blonde Ale and Shark Bait Mango Wheat beer. The nostalgic in-arena atmosphere will include chalk boards listing the ingredients used by the Brewmaster and custom tap handles.

“We at Miami Brewing Company are thrilled to be the exclusive local craft brewery of the Florida Panthers and the BB&T Center,” said Peter Schnebly, co-owner Schnebly Winery and Miami Brewing Company. “With the introduction of the MBC (Miami Brewing Company)'s Beer Garden inside the BB&T Center, we offer patrons of the game a rustic hometown brewery to inhabit before the game, during the game and after the game."
