Sponsor Spotlight: Sudwerk Brewing Company

Have you made it out to the Sudwerk Dock Store yet? If you haven’t,Sudwerk brewing company your life isn’t complete. The Dock Store, part of the Sudwerk Restaurant on 2nd St. and the larger brewing facility is the place in Davis, CA to hangout with your friends and family (yes, kids are welcome too!) and drink a cold tasty brew.  What you get at the Dock Store isn’t anything you can get anywhere else. The beer they serve is often something experimental and a bit different from the usual beer staples you’ll find at the store. Here you’ll find the more interesting and seasonal beers, brews that might use local fruit, or maybe taste a bit more tangy and sour or dark and thick. The lineup changes weekly and while you’re sipping on a beer you can get a tour of the brewery and hear about the history of Sudwerk!

Sponsors: How you can help

Much of what Davis Bike Polo has accomplished over the years, from throwing amazing tournaments to providing loaner bikes and mallets for new players, wouldn’t have been possible without help from the Davis and biking community. If you’re interested in supporting the sport of bike polo, here are some ways you can help.

What we need: davis bike polo sponsor

  • Bikes and mallets, pads and helmets for our newbies their first time out
  • Help spread the word about bike polo, and if you’re in Davis, about Davis Bike Polo

The biggest barrier to entry into bike polo is getting the right gear to play. Bike polo requires a mallet and bike, and while many people have bikes, very few have a bike polo mallet lying around their garage. Also, a bike with the right gear ratio and geometry will make playing a lot more fun and less dangerous then hopping on an old road bike. Davis Bike Polo tries to provides loaner bikes and mallets for new players, and any help from the community to provide the essentials is greatly appreciated.

Help us spread the word about bike polo by sharing bike polo events and information on your social media sites, posting fliers in your shops, and just talking to people about the sport. The more people who hear about bike polo, the more people we can get on bikes and involved in the biking community!

As a token of our gratitude for any help you might be able to give, we’d feature your logo on our website and on our upcoming tournament posters, tournament T-shirts and also thank you publicly on our social media sites and during the tournament award ceremony.

If you’re interested in sponsoring or helping out, please contact Davis Bike Polo at davisbikepolo@gmail.com.
