You haven’t truly made it as an athlete until you’ve had a beer named after you. With that in mind, we can safely say that Abby Wambach has officially arrived.
The women’s soccer star and gold medalist is in Great Falls, Montana, for the week, and a local brewery is doing what it can to make her feel welcomed.
Bowser Brewery created a beer named after her called “Abby’s Urbock” that they’re offering from Sept. 8-13 while she’s in town.
According to KRTV, brewery owner Evan Bowser says the beer is “perfect for Wambach because it looks harmless and is smooth but it has quite a kick with 7 percent alcohol content.”
“We Wanted to do this for Abby,” Bowser told KRTV. “I really think Great Falls is a great town and a great community and I want people to feel over-the-top welcome so they will come back and bring their friends back.”
Bowser later emailed LBS to let us know that Wambach did stop by the brewery and taste the beer (she’s pictured above along with Bowser), and that she seemed to have a great time at the brewery.
We can also safely place Wambach in the same category of sports hero as Tim Tebow. Congrats on that.
