BRONX, N.Y. – DESUS & MERO on SHOWTIME and The Bronx Brewery (TheBronxBrewery.com) today announced that the iconic Bronx comedians, Desus Nice and The Kid Mero, and their home-borough brewery will collaborate this fall on the launch of a limited-release lager.
Named Bodega Boys Beer after their wildly popular “Bodega Boys” podcast that put The Bronx-born duo on the map, the collaboration will be an easy-drinking and light-bodied lager with a refreshing, crisp flavor at 5.5% ABV.
The limited-edition lager will be available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans at The Bronx Brewery’s Taproom & Backyard located at 856 E. 136th Street in the Bronx. To celebrate the launch, The Bronx Brewery and the late-night show will host an exclusive event at the brewery on November 15.
“We proudly state on every one of our cans that Bronx Brewery beers are Made By A Team, and few people represent this better than Desus Nice & The Kid Mero ofDESUS & MERO,” said Damian Brown, co-founder & president of The Bronx Brewery. “They became heroes to the borough and New York City at large by bringing The Bronx to millions, with a sense of humor and style all their own. We’ve been fans from the start, and we’re excited to brew a beer with them that captures the same no-frills approach that they’re famous for.”
