The Miami Marlins and Cervecería La Tropical are teaming up to honor and celebrate Cuban heritage at the ballpark through a series of exciting events and activations. As Cuba’s oldest brewery, La Tropical has a deeply rich history – one that is directly tied to Cuban baseball and now Miami. Originally founded in 1888 in Havana, Cuba on a site that featured a baseball stadium with infield sand made of crushed Tropi Crystal bottles, baseball runs deep in both La Tropical history and Cuban culture, where baseball is the national sport.

As the brand’s first-ever brewery outside of Cuba, the Wynwood site features a state-of-the-art brewing operation, taproom, restaurant, botanical garden, and entertainment stage. And now, La Tropical’s Tropi Crystal brand is the Official Imported from Miami Cerveza of the Marlins and loanDepot park, once again cementing its association to baseball, but now in Miami. Tropi Crystal Pilsner, along with La Tropical’s full lineup of beers, is available at the Tropi Crystal branded bar outside of Section 7 on the Promenade Level and other locations throughout loanDepot park.

“With an incredible history connected to the game of baseball and the Cuban community, Tropi Crystal is the perfect partner to continue our efforts of providing a great fan experience and infusing the community into the ballpark experience,” said Rob Gelman, Marlins Vice President and Head of Partnership Development and Strategy. “We look forward to bringing many exciting initiatives to loanDepot park in partnership with Tropi Crystal.”
