The beer can?
 
2014-04-06 04:19:59 PM  
Woo-hoo!  Safeco Field came in first.

Needed to make sure PETCO Park was at least on the list. Leaving satisfied.

I am OK with Miller Park being second.

Nats park is remarkably good. It is like the diametric opposite of FedEx Field.

Great American two years ago had 16oz of Bass for less than 12oz of Bud/Miller pisswater. And the Louisville River Bats park went right past craft beer and had a relatively inexpensive liquor bar overlooking the third base line.

Pirates seem to have the subject covered.  In foam.

In Philly, they come for the beer at Citizen's Bank Park and stay for the beer, because the baseball they're playing is downright depressing.

So, I have to go to the linked page and then click again to get to a slideshow I have to click through? Sorry, I just don't care that much.

That list sucks, Turner has Sweetwater so it's at least top 10. It's even in cans this year!
 
2014-04-06 08:05:19 PM  
While I agree that my beloved AT&T Park has an amazing selection of brews, the author is an idiot for obviously cutting and pasting from last year's list; the Giants are (sadly) not the reigning World Series Champions'...

/check back in late October/early November
 
2014-04-06 08:10:54 PM  
Target Field is not on the list.  No love for Surly I guess.  Otherwise you have Grain Belt Nordeast and Grain Belt Premium and other Schell's beers across the stadium.

Bass isn't a craft beer though. It's a fairly established macro-brewery owned by some unholy alliance of both Inbev AND Molson-Coors.

Coors Field has a brewery in it, but it's own of those stealth craft breweries....owned by Molson-Coors. It also has a Chubburger, which is a restaurant started by Oskar Blues brewery. It's an oversight that Coors is only #14. Author obviously hasn't been there or read anything about it for this year.

And the Rooftop Party Deck they just put in...oh my.

All MLB stadiums...Meh.

I'd rather watch the River Sharks lose in Camden while drinking Flying Fish.

I know it's a macro; I was sharing because when you see Bass in the store, it's typically one of the most expensive imports on the shelf (more expensive per ounce than some of the Abbey Ales). How the Reds were selling it cheap, I couldn't figure out.

I'm sad to say I never saw that whenever I was there. I would have gladly bought a large amount of bass

Can't speak for anyone else, but I have strict rules...no getting plastered before 5pm.  After that, all bets are off.

BTW, can't wait for URBN St. Brewing (new local brand) to start canning their stuff...their IPA is OFF THE FRIGGIN CHARTS (had it on tap).  Makes Stone IPA seem just OK.  I guess it's because their brewmaster used to work for Stone & learned from the best.

I visited Milwaukee every year for GenCon before it moved to Indy. I don't remember much outside of MECCA and The Safe House.
 
2014-04-06 09:18:58 PM  
Full service bars at Fenway 3rd base decks, seat service, Green Monsta IPA, Cisco Whales' Tail Pale Ale, Smuttynose IPA, several Sam's seasonal offerings and, of course, Harpoon.

I denied even knowing the song existed.

You can buy New Glarus at Miller Park?  Where?  I could never find it when I went.

Lulz.

I don't know the number off the top of my head, but I do know that Seattle area stadiums tend to be the worst in the country when it comes to beer prices.

"Fans can expect to pay the typical ballpark premium when buying a craft beer: a 12-ounce craft draft costs $7.75, a 20-ounce craft draft $9.75 and a 22- to 24-ounce bomber bottle costs $11.50."

Just what I could find off a quick googling. Although you really don't have to subject yourself to the Mariners for that matter, I mean the Pyramid Ale brewery is literally right across the street from the stadium, and there are enough bars/resturants in the vicinity that you could just go to the neighborhood and say you were there without the undoubtedly inevitable anger at watching them lose again to the Royals.

What the hell? Craft beers at baseball games? Baseball stadiums are where you go to drink the watered down piss that is regular domestic beer, and the pint of whiskey you sneak in in your back pocket, and you love it.
 
2014-04-07 12:46:28 AM  
Then there is the Rogers centre in Toronto.

Craft Beer? HA HA

Mark it farking zero and gimme your 12 bucks!

A-B finally let go of their stranglehold on Busch Stadium a few years ago. While the situation isn't great by any means, it's getting better.

As true as this may be, in the middle of the summer in that oven of a stadium the only thing worth getting is their giant frozen margaretas.

The Bloody Mary bar at FedEx is to die for. ~that's good
You need to get club level seats to be able to get them. ~that's bad
Standing room club level seats are only 100-150 and are worth the price ~That's great
They also have Frogurt.

You are wrong on Camden Yards. Anything Heavy Seas is better, local - and more local than Boh at this point (and any point in like the last 3 decades).

Loose Cannon is their staple IPA, but I just don't like the more bitter IPAs in the heat at the park. So I'll usually get whatever season or monthly special they have a the park.
 
2014-04-07 11:50:46 AM  
And in dead last, Wrigley Field.  I think they finally just got a couple of Goose Island beers inside the stadium this year. Otherwise it's macro galore.

The Cell has plenty to choose from. Revolution IPA and Lagunitas IPA on draft this year, lots of local and regional stuff in cans or bottles at the craft brew stands on each level.

sadly these are mostly Baseball stadiums.

Seems football spectators just want quantity

Considering the title of TFA is "Best Baseball Stadiums for Craft Beer Around the Country" I think you may be on to something.
