Major League BeerWe still refer to Baseball as America’s Pastime. Even if we gravitate away from it or outgrow it, it will be in our lives somehow, someway until we die.  Whether you’re a diehard fan, or are being dragged to the corporate box with some co-workers, nothing passes THAT time like some beer.

I bet you feel dirty buying that Corona or Heineken for $10.00, being priced 9x too much and tasting like (you pick the term).  Well, we’re here to help you out, as we have a decent list of ballparks that are now pouring craft beer. This isn’t the definitive list, but gives you a good idea that Major League Baseball parks understand the importance of fresh and for the most part, local craft beer.

The prices are still going to suck, but hopefully you will feel better about dropping $10 for a beverage if it’s drinkable.  If you are a brewery and would like to add to this list,hurry up and please contact us, we’ll get you on the board. Play Ball!

  1. Fantastic list!!!

    New for 2012 Target Field and the Minnesota Twins have Surly and Fulton on tap at the games. Surly Brewing provides a Target Field only “Bandwagon”, and Fulton Brewery (another local brewery) pours their IPA “Sweet Child of the Vine.

    Cheers!

  2. Hey there! Great resource! I do know that the Sky Sox Stadium here in Colorado Springs (farm league for the Rockies) has Rocky Mountain Brewery on tap. That’s a great thing!

    Keep up the good work! It is appreciated.

    Heading in the right direction. However, the fact that craft beer is about to reach 10% of the U.S. beer market’s dollar sales and there are still ballparks without even a single true craft beer option is preposterous. You know who you are and now everybody else does too!!

    The Kansas City Royals stadium, Kauffman Stadium, definitely serves various Boulevard beers. I remember seeing other craft beers there at one of the stands but don’t have an exact list (stuff like New Belgium, Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams).

    Here’s a list of what’s available at PNC Park, home of the Pirates.

    I think the Phillies also serve Victory.
