BUCHANAN, Mich. (June 21, 2019) – It just doesn’t get much more American than standing along a fence with a can of beer at a motorsports event. And when you combine Michigan’s premier motorcycle event with the white-hot Troy Lee “Whiskey Throttle Show,” featuring Ping & GL, and a well-known local brewer the result becomes nothing short of “RrrrreeddBuuddd” legend.
Introducing LaRocco’s Leap Light Beer. Born from America’s passion for high speeds, big air and brews. A pretty simple formula that lends itself to an American golden ale, brewed full flavor, but not too heavy or hoppy, and served up ice cold trackside at America’s Motocross Track – RedBud.
“So we brewed up a new concept for the race track and Round Barn – LaRocco’s Leap Light, which at 4-percent alcohol by volume, is perfect for a long day at the track,” said Matt Moersch, CEO of Moersch Hospitality Group (parent company of Round Barn).
The brainchild of Round Barn’s Jordan Roberts, a racer and former motocross media member, LaRocco’s Leap Light also has the stamp of approval from the Leap’s namesake – Mike LaRocco himself.
Said LaRocco: “I think it’s a fun idea. Having LaRocco’s Leap has already been a cool thing for me. And like they say: ‘Everything’s better with beer!’”
LaRocco’s Leap Light by Round Barn will be available on Friday at the Whiskey Throttle Show, at all the beer stands on Saturday, and again at the Beer Tent Saturday night.

Rising up amongst the fertile rolling hills of picturesque southwestern Michigan, RedBud stands as a cornerstone in the storied history of motocross in the United States.

High on pro racers’ lists of favorite tracks, from both coasts in the United States to Europe and points all over the globe, RedBud’s dirt – dark/organic loam, a truly rich soil suitable for growing grapes on either side of the expansive RedBud property – is the stuff of legend. This, coupled with beach-quality sand mined from the property and incorporated into key areas of the undulating track, and RedBud’s racing surface was seemingly ordained by the motocross gods to host the prestigious 2018 Motocross of Nations.
