Just yesterday, it was announced that formerly retired tight end Rob Gronkowski is joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers alongside his old teammate Tom Brady, and now a local brewery has already created a signature IPA to celebrate the occasion. 

This afternoon, Brandenton’s Motorworks Brewing announced the release of its "Go Go Gronkzilla" Red IPA. The new Gronk-inspired brew comes in a $12.50 six-pack and will be available starting May 8 for pick up at Mortorworks' taproom, which is located at 1014 9th St. W. in

“GO GO GRONKZILLA is passionately brewed with genuine New England tears and double dry-hopped with Azacca and Citra hops,” says the brewery in a press release, “imparting flavorful citrus notes and a firm bitterness that balances its rich, caramelly malt base, boasting a sweet malt character and snappy hop bite with a finish that evokes joy to all Bucs Fans’ palettes.” 

Pre-orders for the new Gronk beer start today via motorworksbrewing.com
