RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Richmond Flying Squirrels are set to announce the name of a beer created by Richmond-area craft brewery for the minor league baseball team.

The Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants is scheduled to announce the name of the new beer at an event Tuesday afternoon.

The team partnered with Center of the Universe Brewing Co. in Ashland to create the beer that will be available at The Diamond and throughout the region.

Fans were asked to help name the amber lager through an online and text message contest. The finalists for the name of the beer were: Brush Back, Chin Music, Hanging Curve, Knee Buckler, and Perfect Game.

Brewery co-founder Chris Ray is a former Major League Baseball pitcher.
