The Richmond Flying Squirrels announced the name Tuesday of a new craft beer created with the Center of the Universe Brewing company.

The new brew will be called Chin Music and was created by the Ashland-based brewery for the San Francisco minor league baseball team.

The beer is an amber lager and will be available for the first time at Flying Squirrels Fan Fest 2014 at The Diamond. 

"We are so excited about the possibilities of this new brand," said Flying Squirrels VP/COO Todd "Parney" Parnell.  "We feel the identity of the brand fits perfectly with the creative objectives of the Squirrels, and we know that fans of the Squirrels and craft beer will be equally pleased with the results."

"Chin Music is a smooth, easy-drinking lager from the Center of the Universe that is perfect for enjoying while watching America's favorite pastime – baseball," said the co-founder of the brewery, Chris Ray, who is a former Major League Baseball pitcher.
