FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Virginia Pride Announces Wild Wolf Brewing Company to Craft Custom Beer for PrideFest 2015, asks Community to Select Variety, Name and Logo.

Wild Wolf Brewing Company is teaming up with Virginia Pride to craft a special beer for PrideFest 2015. Virginia Pride will poll the community to select the variety, name and logo for the custom brew.

Richmond, VA - February 20, 2015  

Wild Wolf Brewing Company (Nellysford, VA) is brewing the official beer of this year's PrideFest, hosted by Virginia Pride, to be held on Saturday, September 12, 2015, at Brown's Island in Richmond.

Virginia Pride has narrowed the options for the brew down to four varieties, and requests the community's participation in selecting - and naming - between them: Sessionable Saison, Pilsner, Belgian ale fermented with fresh fruit, or summer spiced Hefeweizen.  Voting will take place from March 1-15 on the Virginia Pride website.  

“We believe beer unites, and we are privileged to be associated in support of this event.”

"Wild Wolf is stoked to be supporting Virginia Pride through this exciting partnership. This collaboration supports our belief that anyone can come together to produce an amazing union." said Damian Warshall, Director of Business Operations at Wild Wolf Brewing Co., "We believe beer unites, and we are privileged to be associated in support of this event."

Once the style has been selected, the community will be given the opportunity to submit name and logo suggestions for the winning variety.  Finally, Virginia Pride will request feedback to determine the winning combination.  Winners will be invited to join Virginia Pride in an exclusive experience at the Wild Wolf Brewery, and receive recognition from Virginia Pride before and during the festival.

The brew will be available at PrideFest 2015 and in Richmond area restaurants.
