The Welland Jackfish baseball club and Newark Brewing out of Lincoln are looking for fans – or as they’re called at Welland Stadium, FINatics – to help them name the new light beer being drafted this season.

“Well FINatics, we are at it again! The Jackfish have teamed up with Newark Brewery once again to bring you another Jackfish beer to The Pond,” said the ball club.

“Introducing a new German-inspired light beer to the lineup by Newark Brewing Company that will certainly knock it out of the park… see what we did there?!”

Newark Brewing, of course, already supplies the stadium with the fan-friendly Pond Water Lager, available at all home games.

To sweeten the pot in the New Name Sweepstakes, the baseball team, which plays in the Intercounty Baseball League, is offering fans a chance to win:

  1. A Case of the New Light Lager Jackfish Beer
  2. $50 Gift Certificate to Newark Brewery
  3. 10 Jackfish Box Seat Flex Vouchers
  4. A fully custom Jackfish Jersey

Okay, since Pond Water is already taken, here’s some jackfish facts to mull over when creating the new beer’s name.

Jackfish have a silver colored body, broad head, and tinges of yellow scales on its back, fins, and tail. Adults reach sizes of up to four feet long and 70 pounds. Jackfish can’t fly but they can leap very high out of the water. Jackfish are considered very aggressive and like weedy areas of warm lakes and slow rivers.
