In announcing the new signature sponsor, President Lochan Samkaran said: “We are very excited to have Utepils as strategic partner, conveniently located in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood, which is only a few blocks from our key Cricket grounds! In hot summer evenings, now we have a fantastic place to have post-game activities and a few cold ones!”
MCA hosts and organizes multiple summer outdoor Cricket leagues and tournaments in Bryn Mawr meadows — not too far from the intersection of I-394 and Penn Avenue. In April, President of Utepils Brewing, Dan Justesen, introduced Utepils brands and features to the cricket community leaders at a MCA monthly board meeting.
“We embrace the passion and community of cricket,” said Justesen. “It reflects our belief in the power of the classic, whether that be sports, beer styles or the joy of having a beer together. The classics persist because they get it right.”
Utepils Brewing will be hosting Minnesota Cricket Association’s 2018 Season Opening celebration immediately after the Memorial Day holiday.
