Best Baseball Parks to Enjoy a Craft Beer

Most baseball parks have caught on with the craft beer wave.

To evaluate the heavy hitters, I comprised a baseball lineup of the best ballparks to enjoy craft beer.

 

 

Today’s starting lineup...

 

 

 

1. Miller Park, Milwaukee Brewers

The leadoff hitter is one dimensional, not a lot of power, but they need to get on base.  Miller Park has an amazing selection of Wisconsin craft beers: New Glarus, Capital, Leinenkugel’s, Lakefront, Sprecher and Milwaukee Brewing Company.

2. PETCO Park, San Diego Padres

Second batter is a little more versatile.  The home of the Padres’ has some of SoCal’s best breweries represented: Stone Brewing Co., Green Flash and Ballast Point.

3. Coors Field, Colorado Rockies

This park is named after a beer so you have to expect big things from this park.  Lots of power here: Oskar Blues, New Belgium, Boulder Beer Co. and SandLot.

4. Nationals Park, Washington Nationals

Nothing but power in the cleanup spot and this park can back it up: Dogfish Head, Flying Dog and UnderDog.

5. Safeco Field, Seattle Mariners

Another spot in the lineup you expect power out of and this stadium won’t let you down: Elysian, Deschutes, Firestone Walker, Lagunitas, Alaskan, Mac & Jacks and Boulevard.

The rest of lineup is usually filled with roll players, but as you can see from the list, this lineup is stacked.

6. AT&T Park, San Francisco Giants

This ballpark highlights some of the finest California breweries: Anchor, Sierra Nevada, 21st Amendment and Highwater.

7. PNC Park, Pittsburgh Pirates

Visitors to PNC Park can purchase a Beer Passport, which allows them in the gates 90 minutes early and gives fans access to a beer tasting of some great craft brews: Erie Brewing, Flying Dog, Church Beer Works, Victory, Tröegs and East End.

8. Citizen’s Bank Park, Philadelphia Phillies

With the second Pennsylvania ballpark in a row, there are lots of good options for brews in this state.  The Phillie Phanatic has plenty of in-game options: Sly Fox, Flying Fish, Yards Brewing and Victory.

9. Target Field, Minnesota Twins

The new home of the Twins paid extra attention to the best local craft brews and beer drinkers would not be disappointed: Surly, Fulton, Summit, Finnegans, and Schells.

No matter what ballpark you end up at this summer, we encourage you to stay on the look out for foul balls and great craft beer.
