Coors Light is releasing an awesome beer to celebrate the Tampa Bay Lightning winning the Stanley Cup.

The Lightning defeated the Canadiens in five games to hoist the Stanley Cup, and fans will now be able to drink beer made from the ice the team played on. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Coors Light announced the following about Champions Ice:

During the Final, Coors Light quietly scraped and collected the actual ice from the rink and transported it all the way to its hometown brewery in Golden, Colorado to craft the game-winning Champions Ice brew. Coors Light will be filtering the ice during the brewing process, ensuring a refreshing, fully purified drinking experience for those lucky enough to get their hands on the special-edition brew.

The championship ice from the arena will be purified using reverse osmosis membrane ultra-filtration technology, a purification process that meets the high Coors Light standards. The ice will be blended into the Coors Light brew to make the most refreshing and the only beer to ever be brewed with championship ice.

Before you even bother asking, yes, I already reached out to Coors Light to see if I can get my hands on some of this beer.

I’ve drank a ton of great beer over the years, but I’ve never touched a beer that was in any way tied to the Stanley Cup Final.

Now that it’s on the market for Lightning fans, I have to find out how to get some.

Hockey fans are natural beer drinkers. By definition, we’re renegades and being a renegade involves drinking some cold beer.

Fans of the Lightning will now get a very special experience at participating bars, and I wish I was down there to toast with them.

Props to Coors Light for dropping one of the coolest beers that I’ve ever seen.
