Introduce FireWolves Branded ‘Wolf Bite’ Ready To Drink Canned Cocktail

ALBANY, NEW YORK – The Albany FireWolves, of the National Lacrosse League (NLL), today announce that the organization has partnered with Albany Distilling Company to create a ready to drink canned cocktail called ‘Wolf Bite.’  Wolf Bite is a blueberry lemonade vodka flavored cocktail served in a FireWolves branded can.  

“We thrive on developing nontraditional partnerships and we really nailed it with this one!” said George Manias, President of the FireWolves.  “In collaboration with Albany Distilling Company, we created a unique partnership where we will have a great presence in local liquor stores, bars, and restaurants around the Capital Region.  During watch parties and promotional appearances, fans can support the team while enjoying a great tasting beverage and representing their hometown team.  In addition, the Times Union Center will be offering Wolf Bite to fans during all FireWolves home games.  Beginning December 1, fans will start seeing Wolf Bite in many local establishments and we hope they give it a try. They will not be disappointed!”  

Located in Albany, just down the road from the Times Union Center, The Albany Distilling Company was founded in early 2011, just as the craft distilling boom began.  Now, a decade after its inception, Albany Distilling Company’s portfolio boasts a large range of spirits, including a variety of whiskeys, unaged rum inspired by an 18th century distillery located here in Albany, vodka and other various products created in collaboration with other small local businesses.   

Albany Distilling also offers a variety of canned cocktails in a broad range of flavors and ingredients using their ALB Vodka.  The ‘ALB On The Go’s’ are a line of pre-mixed cocktails canned at 5% alcohol by volume.  Unlike most other spiked seltzers on the market, Albany Distilling Company’s canned cocktails are made with vodka rather than malt.  As of December 1, Wolf Bite will be available at Albany Distilling Company for purchase. 

“We couldn’t be more excited to be a sponsor of the Albany FireWolves,” said Rick Sicari, Co-Owner of Albany Distilling Company.  “Supporting all things Albany is very important to us, and we can’t think of any better way to show our city some love than collaborating with our professional lacrosse team to create our newest, and maybe our best yet, ‘ALB On The Go Flavor,’ the Wolf Bite!”
