After Texas announced a partnership with Corona on Wednesday, Tulane is joining the party at the bar and will team up with New Orleans-based company NOLA Brewing for its own signature beer.

The two partners will release "Green Wave Beer" which will be available for the team's season opener on Sept. 2 against Grambling State.

"Tulane Athletics is excited to extend the Green Wave brand with our very own beverage," associate athletic director Jana Woodson said in a statement. "We are excited for our alumni and fans to enjoy this new beverage and support our new partnership with NOLA Brewing."

The beer will be sold in a 12-ounce can and will also be available in local restaurants and grocery stores this fall.

"Green Wave Beer was designed with Tulane fans in mind," CEO of NOLA Brewing Kirk Coco said. "Our goal is for alumni to be able to have a go-to beer to enjoy while tailgating and cheering on their favorite Tulane teams."
