MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The planned beer garden at Luther Williams Field now has a sponsor attached.
Macon Beer Company is teaming with the Macon Bacon, the newest baseball team in the Coastal Plain League, to provide local beers including Macon Progress, Macon Music, Macon Love and Macon Movies at one of the largest beer gardens in the Southeast.
The Bacon and MBC are also starting a community program with the Boys & Girls Club of Central Georgia to raise awareness of alcohol abuse and underage drinking.
“This will allow us to take our young people, educate them in alcohol awareness but also give them an opportunity to write and produce their own alcohol awareness campaign video,” says Phillip Bryant, president and CEO of BGGCG. “So they’re excited about it.”
Luther Williams Field is getting a $2.5 million facelift. The Bacon plays its first home game Friday, June 1 against Lexington County.
