A man who spends his climbing the stands at Coca-Cola field to make sure baseball fans can enjoy a nice, cold beer is now getting a beer of his own.

Resurgence Brewing Company is creating the Conehead IPA, named after Tom "Conehead" Girot, the man who has become known for wearing the conehead cone on his head while yelling out his signature chant, "When you buy from me, you get the Conehead guarantee: Get a warm beer from me, you drink it for free."

The Conehead IPA is just one of three new beers Resurgence is releasing in cans this summer. There's also the beloved Loganberry Wit and Peter P. Porter, a peanut-butter flavored porter.
