Bang the Trash Can Slowly

Made by Rally Cap Brewing Co., Bang the Trash Can Slowly is a hazy double IPA generously hopped with Citra, Mosaic and Waimea hops. The result is an explosion of citrus and tropical flavors with notes of tangerine, ripe mango, and a touch of candied grapefruit. The naming of this brew includes two clever baseball references.

  1. The cheating efforts of the Houston Astros in 2019 – The ‘Stros were alleged to have stolen their opponents’ pitching signs to provide their batters with a potentially unfair advantage. They’d bang a baseball bat against a trash can. This bang would indicate to the batter if the next pitch would be off speed.

  2. The 1956 movie (remade in 1973), Bang the Drum Slowlythis flick is about a baseball player with limited intellect who is dying and bonds with brighter and more talented teammate.

If the beer is constructed as well as its name, you know it’ll be a hit.

ABV – 8.0%

Houston Astros Stealing Signs

The Houston Astros used cameras to steal signs and relay them to the dugout, where a trash can was banged to alert the batter of the pitch that was coming. See for yourself.
