Kyle Rudolph and 612Brew Brewed Up a Limited-Edition Beer for Super Bowl LII

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is having one of the best seasons of his career on the football field, but catching touchdowns for the NFC North Division champions is not the only thing he’s up to this holiday season. Rudolph and 612Brew are collaborating on a limited-edition beer, and you can celebrate the unveiling of said beer at tonight’s launch party in the 612 taproom.

The beer is called “52 by 612,” and it’s celebrating Super Bowl LII coming to U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on February 4, 2018. Attendees of the launch party will be among the very first to taste the limited-edition ale, check out the can design, and receive a signed can and a photo with Rudolph.

A percentage of the proceeds from beer sales will benefit Kyle Rudolph’s End Zone, a 2,500-square-foot patient- and family-centered space. Rudolph's End Zone helps children and teenagers find a place to play, relax, engage in healing therapies, and socialize with other patients and families in the hospital.

Tickets to the event cost $100 and can be purchased here. Food provided by Lord Fletcher’s, three drink tickets, the limited-edition can, and autograph and photo opportunities with Rudolph are included in the price of admission. Doors open at 7 p.m.

After that, limited quantities of the beer will be available in four-packs at Twin Cities-area liquor stores.
