Commissioner Fletcher said teaming up with Pretoria Fields is a push to support local products.

It also helps put the microbrewery and its homegrown beer on the map.

"I've had people that tell me 'you know what I'm actually not a drinker but I'm going to taste it because it's made here locally' and after I watched them drink the whole glass I thought maybe they are. But it's cool just to know it's made less than a mile down the road," Commissioner Fletcher added.

Customers who buy an entree at Jabs Barbeque restaurant can get a free sample of Pretoria Fields beer with the meal.

The beer will be sold for $12 at Mellow Mushroom, Harvest Moon, Buffalo Wild Wings, Locos, The Catch, Austin's Fire & Grill, and Elements Coffee.
