White Lion Beer to Be on Tap at Plainridge Park Casino
SPRINGFIELD — Plainridge Park Casino, the only gaming and live harness-racing track in Massachusetts, has announced that White Lion Brewing will be available on tap when it opens on Wednesday, June 24. White Lion Brewing will be one of several craft-brewing selections available at the casino’s gaming and racetrack facilities.
Established in 2014, White Lion is the first craft brewery to launch in Springfield. Ray Berry, president, and Mike Yates, brewmaster, have released four brew selections under the White Lion brand and have been busy promoting their beer throughout Massachusetts.
Plainridge Park Casino will be a $225 million integrated racing and gaming facility located just off Interstate 495 in Plainville. The facility will open with more than 1,200 slot machines, multiple restaurants, and an entertainment lounge.
Plainridge Park Casino will offer Insane Mane Red Ale at Flutie’s Sports Pub and White Lion Pale Ale at Revolution 1776 Lounge. According to Berry, “both beers have taken off locally, and are gaining greater awareness in regional craft-beer circles. This new outlet will provide an opportunity to share our selection of craft beers with a much larger consumer base.” All of White Lion’s beers are distributed in Central Mass. through Quality Beverage.
“Plainridge Park Casino is excited to feature White Lion’s quality beers as we open our doors to the public for the first time,” said Barry Rhodes, the casino’s director of food and beverage. “We are committed to working with local vendors and showcasing Massachusetts’ quality businesses.”
