You know the palpable feeling of excitement and energy whenever a group of people gathers together in support of a singular objective? Whether that be to score a touchdown, goal, home run, or any common intention. Did you know you can get that same feeling when you and all your friends dress the same when you're out drinking? Well. Welcome to the Raleigh Drinking Team.
Let's take it back in time for a moment. Back to 2014, during the previous World Cup. Seeing large groups of friends and strangers come together to publically to rally behind their team. Seeing the camaraderie and unity achieved really inspired us to want to create something that could give that same feeling to the amazing people of Raleigh. We wanted to have our own team in support of one of our favorite industries. Local breweries.
The design started with the lone squirrel, but no team is complete without a proper crest. Even with the design almost complete it still felt as if it were missing something. That’s when the beer bottle was introduced. Once we gave the bottle to the squirrel the design seemed complete.
If we’re being 100% honest with each other right now, we didn’t have a lot of faith in this design early on but once we saw how people reacted to this design we grew to love it. Groups of people would stop by our booth at various events all repping Raleigh Drinking Team gear and that’s when it really hit us that we had created a tee for the beer lovers of Raleigh.
After the design had been out a short while we received a call from a kids clothing store asking if we made the design but for babies. Because let’s be real, who drinks more than a baby? (And we’re talking milk here) We made a quick swap to a baby bottle and created the jersey for our youngest team members!
Currently, you can get Raleigh Drinking Team gear in Men’s Tees, Women’s Tees & Tanks, onesies, and koozies.
