“Broad Brook Brewing Company of Suffield, CT is excited to be working with Stafford Motor Speedway as a sponsor and through the development of Double Hooked Lager for the race track, local stores and restaurants,” explained Broad Brook Brewing founder Eric Mance. “Double Hooked Lager is a 4.5% easy drinking beer crafted from the finest German malt and noble hops. The light body combined with a lower sessional ABV makes this clean, crisp and very crushable. It’s the perfect warm weather beer that is massively refreshing.”
The new Double Hooked Lager will be available each and every race night at the Double Hooked Bar located at the top of the midway. Race fans will also be able to purchase the Stafford Speedway, Broad Brook Brewing collaboration at local liquor stores and restaurants.
“We’ve always wanted to partner with a local brewery to create a signature Stafford Speedway beer,” noted Stafford Speedway General Manager David Arute. “Our goal is to create a unique experience for everyone that comes to an event at Stafford Speedway and we think that grabbing an ice cold Double Hooked Lager from the Double Hooked bar does just that.”
Stafford Late Model division is set to continue its growth in 2021 with nearly the entire roster of drivers returning to compete and multiple new names in the field. Defending champion Adam Gray is back looking for his 4th career title, while past champions Tom Fearn and Michael Bennet look to shake off the dust from a winless 2020 and return to victory lane. Drivers like Ryan Fearn, who will also carry the Broad Brook Brewing colors on his car this season, Al Saunders, Wayne Coury, Paul Arute Darrell Keane, all look to build off wins in 2020.
