Bud Light Offers Patrick Beverley His Own Personalized ‘Bev Light’ Cans

Patrick Beverley helped the Minnesota Timberwolves clinch a playoff spot on Tuesday night, via 109-104 play-in game victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. Afterward, Bev climbed up on tables, yelled at the crowd, hugged his mom, shed a bunch of tears and rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

Then, he sat down with media, cracked a Bud Light tall boy and opened a vein. He was emotional, talking about how great Anthony Edwards is going to be, how much he loves his situation in Minnesota, and even went live on Instagram for a little bit. But none of that got him fined $30,000 by the NBA. What did, was when he went into the disrespect he felt when jettisoned by the Clippers last offseason, before eventually landing with the Timberwolves.

Bud Light Shoots Its Shot w/Pat Bev

On Thursday evening, Bud Light jumped on a perfect marketing opportunity, tweeting an offer that Patrick Beverley is unlikely to refuse. They want to create and send specialty ‘Bev Light’ – “Take They Ass Home” cans to Beverley so he can properly celebrate any wins the Wolves might get this postseason.

My only question to Budweiser would be, why stop after sending a few cans to the Timberwolves locker room? We’ve seen many different specialty cans of beer over the years, but a “Take They Ass Home” Bev Light can is something that would break sale records in Minnesota liquor stores. If Anheuser-Busch knows what it’s doing, we’ll see these new cans arriving all over the state by Friday afternoon.
