How many beers does it take to make Miller Park look pretty?

All of them.

Finally, Philadelphia is mentioned on a top craft beer list!

/Even if it is for the stadium selection
 
2013-04-30 08:48:09 PM
does it really count as a craft beer if it was bought by one of the big 3?

moistD: does it really count as a craft beer if it was bought by one of the big 3?


That is way too philosophical a question for a beer thread.

But as long as they are maintaining the recipes that made them worth buying and still acting fairly independently being bought out just means better distribution network so I can enjoy their delicious awesomeness from the other side of the country.

In before hipsters drinking PBR while playing kickball.

/shouldn't they drink cask ale while watching cricket?
 
2013-04-30 09:10:55 PM
Who can afford to drink at any sporting event to any significant degree? Even when I did drink I never had a beer at a game because they were $8 each for Piss Lite. I can only imagine what these foo-foo beers go for.
 
2013-04-30 09:14:55 PM
Maybe it's because the site isn't rendering well on my phone, but is that slideshow just a list of the parks with a picture, without actually mentioning what craft beers those parks serve?

How am I expected to engage in full beer snobbery without this vital bit of information?
 
2013-04-30 09:24:53 PM
Meh.

I'll stick with my $6 tickets, and $2 beers (half price on Thursdays!) - and we have a museum.

Those are not craft beers.

Local breweries like Lost Abbey, High Water Brewing, Anchor Brewing, Marin Brewing, Sierra Nevada, Drake's Brewing,
Lagunitas, Ballast Point, Russian River, North Coast, 21st Amendment, and AleSmith are served alongside brews from Victory Brewing, Stillwater Ales, Avery Brewing, Blind Pig Brewery, and Jolly Pumpkin Brewery.


Mother of God!  Must go there.  They have Russian River in the stadium? WOW.

This is a very very good list too:

Phillies fans drink beer from Tröegs Brewing, Victory Brewing, Flying Fish (in nearby New Jersey), Sly Fox, Yards Brewery, Prism Brewing, and Philadelphia Brewing. The list continues with several out-of-state breweries, like Goose Island, Long Trail, Otter Creek, Allagash, Anchor, Dogfish Head, Lagunitas, Ommegang, Samuel Adams, 21st Amendment, Oskar Blues, and Sierra Nevada.

Nice to see Bells, Founders, Firestone Walker, Heavy Seas, Stone, and New Glarus, a brewery with a cult following both regionally and across the country, which is a really really good beer, infiltrating stadiums.

No.

fark no.

Red Hook is not a craft beer, Seattle. Not anymore.
 
2013-04-30 10:10:24 PM
Seattle has Boulevard? Holy fark. I didn't think that beer made it out of the KC area (unless there's another brewery by the same name that I don't know about).

Well, the Yankees clearly disagree. And when have they ever been wrong?
 
2013-04-30 10:16:26 PM
Brewery Ommegang is awesome, BTW. Brother and I took a mental health vacation to the area and they had the biggest best bunch of beers ever there, and there was a nice sized concert venue there too.

97 Rate Beer, tasted great.

Now, granted, you've probably had most of their widely available stuff. But they do produce some good craft beer.

...and?

I know some people just call "anything not made by InBev" Craft Beer, but I don't see it that way. I've been to the Red Hook brewery and seen them making their beer, same hops and water and grain as before they got bought out. They're real people making the beer, and they care. Same for Goose Island - while I don't like most of it, they're real Americans working hard to put out a consistent product regardless of where the checks go.

I won't fight you on the swill - they try to market as "craft beer" in spite of being the exact same beer re-labeled. But stuff that already existed as "craft beer" still being made the same way is still "craft beer" to me.

The HEB stores here in Central Texas carry Boulevard wheat.  It's an ex-KCer's dream.  :)

Batch 19 is a Coors product, but damn if it isn't tasty.

Oysters at Jax and Batch 19 is a great way to enjoy a Saturday afternoon in downtown Denver.

I will take one of their Bourboun County Stouts over any other beer ever.

So I guess it doesnt matter at this point. Drink great beer if you can, no matter who owns the production.

/Second on my list is Firestone Double DBA

No, that's exactly what the "article"'consists of.

I haven't been to Minute Maid in a while, but Reliant kept in my good graces with a St. Arnold/other cart.

And here we go -- see, it's more important what company makes the beer than how good the actual product is.

Surprised Progressive Field didn't make it.   They have a whole stand devoted to a decent selection of Ohio beers.

Fenway now has decent beer, Green Monsta IPA is actually pretty damn good.

http://www.boston.com/lifestyle/food/blogs/99bottles/2013/04/craft_b ee r_at_fenway_park_wher.html

Besides those listed, Harpoon and Sam Adams are everywhere, and now Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA is on tap most games. It does boggle my mind how one of the strongest regions for craft beer (MA, ME, VT, RI, NH) took so damn long to make it to the regional ballparks and sports venues.
 
2013-05-01 01:56:36 AM
Great beer, a pretty ballpark, and a nice view of the bay and downtown makes up for the shiat baseball down on the field at Petco.
