1 min read

TOMS RIVER, NJ – Todd Frazier’s Major League Baseball playing days may be behind him, but his name on his hometown brewery’s latest brew can’t meet the demand. Frazier, now preparing to play for the U.S. 2020 [2021] Olympic baseball team now has his own beer, “Toddfather Pilsner”.

The Toms River Brewing company, ironically located on Little League World Champions Boulevard, named in honor of Frazier and his Toms River East Little League’s 1998 world series title, is now making more of the special brew.

“”We heard you,” the company said this week. “More Toddfather cans comin’ atcha. A fresh batch of our limited-edition Toddfather Pilsner 5.2% is available today in the Tap Room!”

The beer is a collaboration between Frazier and the microbrewery.

“As a Toms River native and huge community advocate we got together with [Frazier] to create the home run of Pilsners, Toddfather,” the company said. “A simple bill of ingredients consisting of Pilsner and Vienna malts set the stage for a delicate ensemble with Perle and Saaz hops for a pronounced yet refreshing hop profile that lends subtle floral and fruit notes.”

“Our brew team lagered this pilsner to perfection in true German fashion with an anxious patience like a third baseman awaiting a line drive. Sun-soaked days at the ballpark are made complete with this pils, it drinks like a single but finishes as a home run,” they said.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Toms River Field of Dreams, an organization with a mission to encourage and engage the local community, with a focus on those with special needs, in physical and social activity. Toms River Field of dreams provides opportunities for individuals of all ages to engage, explore, and socialize together.

This spring, Frazier was designated for assignment by the Pittsburgh Pirates after a slow start at the plate. Instead of returning to the minor league affiliate, Frazier opted instead to play for Team USA in this year’s Olympics. Frazier, a two-time All-Star finished 3rd in Rookie of the Year voting in 2012. His Major League Baseball career spanned 11 seasons where he compiled a .241 batting average and hit 218 home runs. This year, he struggled at the plate with the Pirates batting just .086 in 13 games.
