INDIANAPOLIS – Flat12 Bierworks is supporting Jarett Andretti’s sprint car program at Andretti Autosport Short Track.
Flat12 Bierworks will be an associate sponsor of Andretti’s sprint car program. Andretti is a regular in the Pirelli GT4 American series and is also scheduled to make his Indy Lights debut during the Freedom 100 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway later this month.
Andretti with be the face of the new F12 lineup, which will launch on May 24 with the year-round flagship Jarett Andretti 18 (Orange Wheat) and special release Jarett Andretti Freedom (Vanilla Orange Wheat) with a collector’s edition can to commemorate Andretti’s Indianapolis Motor Speedway debut in the Freedom 100 on the same day. The new F12 brand will be an homage to the fearlessly – and unapologetically – competitive edge of athletes like the young Andretti.
The new school approach to F12 will complement the long-standing old school roots of Flat12 Bierwerks, established in 2010 as one of the first production breweries in Indianapolis. A tribute to the gladiators of sport, the F12 brand will focus on individuals who have the courage to compete in some of the world’s most dangerous events while Flat12 will remain as the classic Indianapolis mainstay everyone has come to love over the past eight years.
“It’s impossible to overstate how thrilled I am to work with Jarett and the entire team at Andretti Autosport Short Track,” said Jason Wuerfel, CEO of Flat12 Bierworks and Books & Brews. “My primary goal for Flat12 is to honor the rich racing tradition in the city of Indianapolis. The moment I met and got to know Jarett it became clear to me that he could take to an entirely new level. While we’re continuing to follow the racing theme, I’m extremely excited for Jarett to be the face of the new, cutting-edge F12 brand. Fans can expect a lot of fun events, appearance, promotions, and online content in the near future.”
Andretti is currently in the middle of one of the busiest race seasons of his young career. He’s already scored numerous top-five finishes in the both the GT4 American Series Sprint and SprintX Series and has also scored several top-five finishes in his sprint car earlier this season, too. His year has been highlighted by the announcement that he will make his debut at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the Indy Lights Freedom 100.
“It’s a great time to have new partners such as Flat12 to come on board with us,” said Andretti. “I have a passion for our sprint car program and Flat12 has a passion for racing and brewing the best beer in Indianapolis. It’s obvious there are synergies and I’m proud to be representing Flat12 at the track and participating in exclusive events with them.”
