“Whether it’s at the race track, golf course, or really anywhere people are having fun, this is the beer for them,” Michael Waltrip said. “I have such great memories of Talladega and obviously our brand is a reflection of my love of racing and those great communities that host racing across this country. This beer is about having fun and I’m excited to share it.”

Talladega Light, an American lager is being produced under the supervision of Brewmaster, Levi Duncan of beverage platform Bevana Partners, who’s been a featured judge of the world’s top beer competitions for more than 10 years.
