Little Rock Athletics and Little Rock Trojan Sports Properties announced Thursday the unveiling of a Little Rock Trojans Branded Seltzer as part of a larger statewide partnership with Core Brewing and Distilling, based in Springdale.
Scarlet Letter, an award-winning, hand-crafted seltzer by Core that is low on calories and low on carbs, will produce a Trojan Edition of their Scarlet Letter Red seltzer. Highlighted by the Little Rock Trojans “Trojan Head” logo prominently on the can, the Trojan Edition of Scarlet Letter Red will feature the same delicious taste of cucumber, lime, ginger beer and hibiscus.
The Trojan Edition of Scarlet Letter will be available for sale at the Jack Stephens Center for every Little Rock Basketball game as well as being featured for sale throughout the entire state of Arkansas in retail outlets. Scarlet LetterTM is the Official Seltzer of the Little Rock Trojans.
Thursday’s announcement also includes the addition of the Core Brewery Taproom in Springdale as the Official Trojan Rally Point and Travel Spot of Northwest Arkansas. The Core Brewery Taproom features the full lineup of Core’s offerings from beer to seltzer to the brewery’s line of “25th State Cocktails.” That lineup will be expanded with Thursday’s announcement as the Trojan Edition of Scarlet Letter Red will be included, along with Trojans paraphernalia to decorate the taproom and brewery.
“We, at Core | Scarlet Letter, are very proud to partner with the Little Rock Trojans as their ‘Official Seltzer,’” said Jesse Core, CEO and Founder of Core Brewing & Distilling. “(UA) Little Rock has a strong tradition of excellence in academics, athletics and much more. My children are eighth-generation Arkansans, and one thing is clear; we love the state of Arkansas! I look forward to enjoying a cold Scarlet Letter while watching the Trojans soon! Go Trojans!”
The partnership and addition of a Little Rock Trojan-branded seltzer is part of a larger sponsorship deal that Core Brewing and Distilling recently signed with Little Rock Trojans Sports Properties and the Little Rock Trojans Athletic Department.
“We are excited about this partnership with Core Brewing,” said Logan Davis, General Manager of Little Rock Trojans Sports Properties. “Their team will be working in coordination with our staff in helping to promote and grow the Little Rock Trojan brand as well as the Core Brewing offerings around the Natural State. All of our coaches and administrators look forward to competing and recruiting around the state in communities with the Trojan Edition of Scarlet Letter Red.”
