(KRON) — The Oakland A’s on Thursday denied any involvement in the decision by a local beer vendor to abruptly withdraw from a pre-season fan fest organized by the team’s fans. Earlier in the day Thursday, the A’s supporters group Last Dive Bar posted on social media that one of the fan fest’s sponsors, Drake’s Brewing Company, had abruptly withdrawn from the event.

“We have some unfortunate news and are disappointed to announce Drakes Brewery has pulled their sponsorship, only three days before Fans Fest,” Last Dive Bar wrote on Facebook. The fan group said it had incurred expenses including “sponsor banners, a digital marketing package” and “rented equipment to set up a Drakes beer both.”

“We are now left with no Drake’s beer to serve, and banners that will have to be recreated and printed just days before the event,” Last Dive Bar wrote.

The San Leandro brewery cited “unforeseen circumstances” as the reason behind the abrupt withdrawal, according to Last Dive Bar.

“They have not provided any further details despite us seeking further clarification via email,” Last Dive Bar posted.

Comments on the post were filled with speculations that the brewery, which is an A’s sponsor, was taking direction from the team in pulling out of the fan fest.

However, an A’s spokesperson denied this, telling KRON4 News, “The A’s did not contact Drake’s regarding their sponsorship of Fans Fest. The A’s have not advised any vendors to not participate in this event.”

This year’s fan fest was organized completely by fans, many of which have been actively protesting the team’s proposed move to Las Vegas. It will take place on Saturday, Feb. 24 at Bloc15 at Oakland’s Jack London Square.

KRON4 News has reached out to Drake’s Brewing for comment on this story. We have not yet heard back.
