Milwaukee Brewers History:
According to Wikipedia.org, Milwaukee was an early prospect for professional baseball, with several brief experiments at the major league level but mostly in the minor leagues. The longest-lasting minor league club was the Milwaukee Brewers, who played in the American Association from 1902 through 1952.
The nicknames of these teams were initially assigned by the media rather than the teams themselves. Some were known as the "Creams" or "Cream Citys" after the distinctive brick which gave Milwaukee its nickname, others were known as the "Brewers", in reference to one of the city's chief industries. The nickname "Brewers" has been used by Milwaukee baseball teams since at least the 1880s, although none of those clubs ever enjoyed a measure of success or stability. That would change with Milwaukee's entry into the American Association, which would last fifty years and provide the city's springboard into the major leagues.
Robert George Uecker, (Bob Uecker), an American former Major League Baseball player and current sportscaster, comedian, and actor, has served as a play-by-play announcer for Milwaukee Brewers radio broadcasts since 1971. Born and raised in Milwaukee, and currently residing in Menomonee Falls, he is a true Milwaukeean and we are proud to have him returning to the booth for his 48th season with the Brewers!
During its 51-year tenure in the American Association, Milwaukee played in the same ballpark. While the ballpark has undergone several changes over the years, it has remained a place for sports fans to tailgate, drink local brews, and celebrate their team. Miller Park features North America's only fan-shaped convertible roof, which can open and close in less than 10 minutes. Large panes of glass allow natural grass to grow, augmented with heat lamp structures wheeled out across the field during the off-season. Rain or shine, the game goes on!
Cold Beer Here!
Miller Park has a new ballpark bar, “Local Brews”, featuring 24 tap beers from 17 Wisconsin breweries. The bar is part of a food & beverage overhaul that includes 11 new concession stands, a number of portable stands and kiosks, and two full-service bars. Milwaukee breweries including Lakefront, MobCraft, Raised Grain, our partners at Third Space, and several others will be represented here. "Dating back to the days when Frederick Miller first brought his brewing operation to the city, Milwaukee’s heritage has been built around producing great beer," Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger said in a statement. The new bar is located on the Loge Level near section 207 & we definitely recommend checking it out and supporting our local breweries!
