A brewery in Denver is releasing a new craft beer in honor of Mike Sadler, the former Michigan State punter who died last year.

RJ Banat, a Michigan State alum and co-owner of Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery, says MSU's Rocky Mountain Alumni Club is hosting an event Thursday for the benefit of the Michael Sadler Foundation. Banat says club director Mark Porteous knew Sadler was a craft beer lover and came up with the idea of someone brewing a special beer for the event.

Jagged Mountain plans to donate $1 from every pint sold to the Sadler Foundation.

Sadler and Nebraska punter Sam Foltz were killed in a car crash in July when they were in Wisconsin to work at a kicking camp.
