    Not a fan of Arbor but any chance there is some black note left.

    How are people complaining about the high prices at the ballpark? With Miller and Bud being 7-8$, were you really expected craft choice to be cheaper?? No one said it was fair one way or another, but it is what it is. Find me any ball park, stadium, amusement park, etc, in the country where you can find good beer for a "reasonable" price.

    Is there a way to find out what they have before just a surprise when you happen to be there?

    I had two Black Notes after I loaded up at the bar before the game so I wouldn't have to spend big bucks for beer at the ballpark. $8.75 for a Black Note? Deal!!

    honestly I didn't know about any of the special feature beers until friday, when they brought the old kegerator from last year up from the warehouse, and said we're doing hopslam today. but I did know about the rest of the weekend that night so I'll try and post it here as soon as I know about it'll probably only be a day or 2 in advance but thats the best I can do, also at the moment the plan is to only do those on weekend games

    I used to attend the triple-A Norfolk Tides in the late 90's...they had one kiosk that served Pete's Wicked Summer Brew...it was good at the time...the server always gave me this knowing wink...even after I was obviously loopy...

    Not possible.

    All I was saying was what nobody cares to hear --

    I probably wouldn't pay it, regardless of the quality of beer. Obviously I'd choose it over the typical shit that's served, though.

    7.75 is beyond reasonable for KBS

    Yep...I mean, I love what they are doing with the expansion..The hiring of new people..Keeping it "Detroit"...But I really wish they would put more focus into their brewing process and just producing quality beer..

    And not have their canning line located out of state. If they're all Detroit, they should can their beers here.

    I'm headed to the game tomorrow too and I'm sitting in the 300 level. I believe that the main craft stand referenced in this thread is in the 102 area. Will there be any craft options near me too? Thanks.

    alelover Aug 19, 2012 Michigan

    im not 100% but i would guess you'll just be best off making the short trip over to sec 104 to the MI craft beer stand. doesn't seem to be many good options outside of there..

    Too bad you will have to pay an arm and a leg for it. Rather just drink it during tailgating

    It's a ballgame. You pay more for everything. Part of the deal.

    Listen, there's no reason to complain about the price of beer at the ballgame. It's annoying and it's obvious. You can get Two Hearted for what you pay for Bud. That's a good deal, not something to mindlessly bitch about.

    Mindlessly bitch about it? You sound like a Chicago Hawks fan right now. Obviously not mindlessly whens its a true fact.

    You're right. Complain about prices for good beer at a ballpark. You really should complain about the price of a burger at the airport or a cocktail on a cruise ship. Enjoy. Cheers!

    Shit... I didn't know this thread was about cruise ships and airplanes. Learn to form a argument and not attempt one that is fallacy filled. First of I didn't "bitch" about it, it was more of a joke: "Arm and a leg." You Mindlessly replied to my comment acting like you are so smart and say I didn't know you have to pay more for everything at a Tigers game... Yup I replied "mindlessly." And thats called sarcasm like my second comment.
