    Went to the Angels home opener. There were some solid options on the 100 level. Saint Archer, Firestone Walker, and the Ballast Point area in the food court.

    I've walked from the top deck to Public House for 20oz of Blind Pig more times than I can count.

    How many innings do you miss on average from leaving your seat to returning?

    Depends. I get my first one when entering the park, the second about fourth inning, and, if a third, before the seventh-inning stretch. After the opening of the game, the line's not as awful as beforehand. Somewhere around 1/2 to a full inning, I guess. My main point is that 20 oz. pours of BP are worth it!

    Went to Comerica Park today, first game of the year. Free tickets from work let's me explore the beer selection. The Craft Beer Corner along the right baseline is usually pretty solid with lighter, drinkable session beers. Popped in here on my way to right field:

    Got myself a KBS. It was a nice surprise and I think CoPa has great beer selection but no where near other parks in the country.

    Went to Miller park last weekend. Happy with the beer selection and the Cubs win.

    Now if only Wrigley would add more good beers to mirror the product on the field...

    Manor Hill IPA in cans are now available at the park too along with some Union Products(Duckpin, Steady Eddie). It is slowly getting better. Love the firkin fridays too.

    I live 3 miles from Dodger stadium ... Usually Ill just stick with XX Lager 24oz cans there. Cheapest option. There are some El Segundo beers floating around, along with Golden Road. Angel Stadium seems to do better than the Dodgers. Ballast Point and Firestone almost everywhere and Saint Archer has their own right field bar now.

    In my opinion, no one touches PetCo in SD ... By far the best options and prices across MLB

    Surprised they still have KBS on tap from opening day. They didn't have the Dragonsmilk Coconut on opening day which I like more than KBS.

    I had a Hop Devil and a Sunshine Pils there last night. The "Brewerytown" concessions, of which there are a bunch, had both.

    My wife and I went to the game last Sunday. Troegs Sunshine Pils was on tap at The Alley Brewing biergarten and I saw Hop Devil on tap at several Brewerytown kiosks. It looks like it will be a good season - for beer.

    Cheers!

    Yeah, the Sunshine Pils was great. The weather was great. The 14 - 4 loss, not as great.

    More reason to continue drinking tasty beer!?!:rolling_eyes:

    Cheers!

    P.S. If the Phillies continue to perform like this they should permit beer sales after the 7th inning.:wink:

    On top of that my buddy's brewery, Pollyanna Brewing out of Lemont, is on draft and in cans at the White Sox stadium. Great stuff if you haven't tried them. Cheers!

    (and Go Cubs Go!)

    Does anyone really need to watch all 9 innings anyways?

    Made it to the Mets game last night. The Empire Craft concessions (sections 416 & field level around 132) are the best bet. LIC Beer Project Dutch Kills and two Mikkeller offerings specific to Citi Field are all in tall cans for $10.50. Loved that they don't pour it into a plastic cup as well.

    At Yankee Stadium it is still a barren wasteland for craft. The Bronx Summer ale was the best option I found, though I did hear that in the Jim Beam bar there are decent beers on draft.

    Any intel on what's available at SunTrust Park?

    The only thing I'm aware of at Suntrust is the Terrapin pub. Chopsecutioner sounds like a fun beer to enjoy at the new digs.

    Perhaps I'm in the minority, but when I go to the ball game I go for the cheapest domestic. At Busch the best deal would be domestic draft 20oz for $9.50(BL, Bud, Select) They brought back the 25oz tall boys this year. I believe it is $11 or $12 for the ones I already listed plus Coors Light, Busch and PBR.

    Surprised no one's mentioned Progressive Field in Cleveland yet. So many local breweries have their own stands with food, too. Fat Heads, Great Lakes, Market Garden, Brew Kettle, etc. with roughly 4+ of their beers on tap. Then there's a bar in the upper level that's pour-yourself and it has local stuff from Jackie O's, Thirsty Dog, Willoughby Brewing, Platform, Butcher & the Brewer and bigger breweries like Bell's, Yuengling, Stone, Dogfish Head and more. It's definitely solid. Even have a bar called "You Dad's Beer" and it has PBR, Miller Lite and such :wink:

    Domestic beer is only $4 for 12 oz.

    22 oz. of Fat Head Head Hunter and those craft ones are $10.75, if I remember correctly.

    Yes you're in the minority. This is a craft beer forum. We gladly pay triple (or much more) the price of cheap domestic beer for craft in a liquor store, so I don't think we're going to worry much about the extra 25 cents that craft beer costs at Busch stadium.

    Yes I like craft too. I've got more than a mortgage payment of beer in my basement. It's just personally when I go to a sporting event I opt for the lowest $ per oz available. I'm cheap and I enjoy the challenge of the ultimate bargain. It's quite the thrill.
