GET IN THE GAME! This is the one. The one you prep for. The one you train for. Only one emerges victorious. Which Team will have the best Steel Hands?

Let’s fill up the sidelines!   Steel Hands Brewing will host its first Training Camp event welcoming former College Football athletes for an entertaining evening of live football competitions benefitting Camp Cole.  Players from both the University of South Carolina and Clemson University have committed and will compete as Teams at Steel Hands Training Camp this Saturday, July 17th at 5:00 pm.  The Gamecocks Alumni include: Perry Orth, Stephen Garcia, Ryan Brewer, Brian Elam and Jonathan Martin.  The Tigers Alumni include: Reggie Merriweather, David Dunham, Kyle Browning, Durrell Barry and Ryan Hemby. Each team of five players will face off in a series of competitions to see who will have the best “Steel Hands”!

Steel Hands Brewing encourages fans to come out to this free event and support Camp Cole while enjoying an evening of entertaining competitions, opportunities to meet the players and sign autographs, plus live music from Nashville Singer/Songwriter and recording artist, JB Strauss.  Steel Hands Brewing will be donating 70% of the craft beer pint sales from 5:00 until 8:00 pm to Camp Cole and its mission to create “A Place to Shine” for children, teens and adults facing serious illnesses and other health or life challenges.

In addition to Training Camp, Steel Hands has invited the former College Football athletes to appear in a promotional video campaign that will focus on community over competition – we all love competition, but craft beer unites our community.  The “Train-Hard, Craft-Together” campaign will be released leading up to the 2021 College Football Season in August.
