Just in time for this weekend’s season opener, the RailHawks announced that Kupono Captain’s Ale will be brewed in honor of longtime player and “Mr. RailHawk” Kupono Low.

The American Blonde Ale, brewed by Raleigh-based Lonerider Brewing Co., is described as light-bodied, clean and crisp and golden in color, according to a news release.

It will be poured at all home games at WakeMed Soccer Park as well as retail outlets.

To top it off, 10 percent of the proceeds from the beer sales will go to a charity of Low’s choosing. He picked the Cary-based Fill Your Bucket List Foundation, an organization that provides wishes to adults with cancer who are struggling financially.

“The Fill Your Bucket List Foundation sent a mother and her child last year on a cruise vacation to Puerto Rico,” Low said in a statement. “That was the foundation’s first charitable event, and being part of that experience felt wonderful.”
