Coors Light celebrates the Tampa Bay Lightning with Champions Ice beer

The Tampa Bay Lightning and its fans are be toasting another Stanley Cup championship with the Coors Light Champions Ice Beer. While beer brands create special beverages in honor of champions and championships, this particular Coors Light beer is a first of its kind.

According to the brand’s announcement, the Coors Light Champions Ice Beer is made from the actual ice that the players skated on during the Stanley Cup Final. It seems that the beer brand has been collecting the ice from the rink. Whether someone had a special seat on the Zamboni or another method was used is unclear. Still, someone was carefully collecting that ice.

All that ice was sent to Golden. Colorado. After going through the brewing process, the “refreshing, fully purified drinking experience” will give fans an opportunity to toast the Tampa Bay Lightning and their repeat performance of raising the Stanley Cup.

Although this special brew may not be available in stores, it will be available starting on July 12. As seen on, there are 15 locations that will be selling this special beer. The celebratory beer will be sold in 32 oz collectible crowlers at the participating locations. The limited-edition beer will be available while supplies last.

Thinking about this special offering, many Tampa Bay Lightning fans will be searching for this icy beverage. Even people who might not drink beer would want the potentially collectible beer for to celebrate their connection to the team. These type of food and beverage celebratory items are often prized possessions for many sports fans.

It will be interesting to see if one of the Tampa Bay Lightning players actually gets some of this Coors Light Champions Ice Beer and drinks it from the Stanley Cup. Although that idea might not be part of the trophy handling protocol, it is better than trying to play catch with a championship trophy in Tampa Bay.

Would you like to have a sip of the first beer made with hockey championship ice? Do you think that a beer made with grass from the baseball field or the football field could be next?
