MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee Brewers minor league affiliate, the Carolina Mudcats, will rebrand its team name for four games this season.
For these select games this season, the Mudcats will be called the "Micro Brews" to "pay homage" to their affiliation with the Milwaukee Brewers.

The temporary rebrand will feature on-field caps and jerseys. Fans will be able to purchase "Micro Brews" merchandise at carolinamudcats.com.
"We're so excited to introduce this new Brewers-inspired look for the Mudcats this season," said Patrick Ennis, the team's director of promotions and fan experience.
"This new look maintains the Mudcats brand, but also recognizes our parent organization, the Milwaukee Brewers. It ties in locally with North Carolina being home to so many microbreweries and a great hub for the craft beer culture."
