Hat on a Hat: Beer City Bung Hammers 2019


We finish Whitecaps Week with the team’s new version of their fan favorite alter ego from the 2018 season. The ‘Caps crushed it last season with the Bung Hammers and may have just out done themselves in 2019.


Logo Quality: 9/10

Bung Hammers is a great name. Like “Udder Tuggers,” it seems dirty on its face but has a legit story behind it. Last year everyone outside the beer world had no idea what a bung was or the hammer that hits it into the bung hole. This logo tells the story for you. Gets away from the baseball but I ain’t mad at it.

Colors: 9/10

The white panel, the tri-colors, the bright and expressive logo….damn near perfect. Not a huge orange fan but it fits the theme. But that’s literally the only reason it isn’t a 10/10 in my eyes.

Creativity: 9/10

I loved last year’s logo and this one is even better. PLUS, the colors and tri-color design push it to the next level in creativity. The Bung Hammers dipped their toe in the water last year and jumped full in with a cannonball this year.

Wearability: 5/5

You can wear this anywhere at anytime with almost anything. Forward or back, it will be a nice look and a conversation piece.

Overall: 32/35

As disappointing as the Calaveras hat was, this hat TOTALLY redeems the Whitecaps. I bought a Bung Hammers hat as soon as possible last year and may just have to get the updated version this year. This is great. A MUST BUY.
