Peoria City Announces Industry Brewing Tailgate Zone

(April 17, 2024 | Peoria, Illinois) – Peoria City and Industry Brewing are pleased to announce a partnership that will enhance pregame tailgates right outside of Shea Stadium.

Industry Brewing, the creators of The 309 Red Lager, the official beer of Peoria City’s supporters group The 309, will be the 2024 presenting sponsor of the Peoria City Tailgate Zone. Located inside the gates near Nebraska Avenue, the Industry Brewing Tailgate Zone will include both general and reserved tailgate parking right outside the Shea Stadium gates, as well as mobile food and beverage vendors and music for fans attending Peoria City games.

“The pre-game tailgate is one of the highlights of match day at Shea Stadium. From the food trucks to fellowship with family and friends, we wanted to build upon that foundation for the 2024 season,” said Matt Sheehan, Vice President of Peoria City. “We’ve listened to the fans and are excited to work towards serving adult beverages, including The 309 Red Lager, to those who want to enjoy responsibly before kickoff.”

“Industry Brewing is thrilled to be the presenting sponsor of the Peoria City Tailgate Zone. Our relationship with The 309 has been tremendous and we are honored that we were asked to be part of this great and upcoming brand here in Peoria. As creators of The 309 Red Lager, we look forward to reaching many great fans and making new friends with our smooth and flavorful Lager and to help provide even more excitement to the Peoria City game day experience. Again, we thank The 309 and Peoria City Soccer and we can’t wait to see all of you at the Industry tent on game day!” said Travis Mohlenbrink, Owner of Industry Brewing.

You can expect to see the Industry Brewing tent, along with fun giveaways, merchandise items for purchase and more during the tailgating experience.
