Major League Baseball Craft Beer Guide

Beer and baseball go together like the Internet and memes. In case you are wondering what MLB stadium has the best selection of beer, I’d wager it’s a tossup between Citizens Bank Park in Philly, PNC Park in Pittsburgh, and Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati.

Places like Seattle, Boston, San Francisco, San Diego, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Cleveland and Denver that have access to fantastic craft beers have no excuse for their terrible/limited selections. Mostly, I’m looking at Boston. Sam Adams and Harpoon?

Update: Thanks to the Daily What, it looks as if more people than usual are going to see this list. If you’re a baseball and beer fan let me know if any beers are missing. I’m sure the list changes all the time, but I’d like to keep this list as updated as possible.

For example, I was informed that Fenway Park sells Wachusett Brewing Co. beers as well as Harpoon and Sammy Adams. I’m sure the same is also true for the other 29 parks.

Update 2: I’m an idiot. I totally left off the Toronto Blue Jays. Sorry Canada. Working to get them added.

Update 3: As best I can tell, both Wrigley Field (Chicago Cubs) and Rogers Centre (Toronto Bluejays) might not offer craft beer, per se. Trying to pin down exactly what is sold at each stadium. It looks like the Cubs used to sell Old Style but no longer do so. Toronto has Labatt’s, Keith Alexander and some macro-staples.

Also, it looks like places like Seattle, Cleveland, San Diego, Milwaukee, Denver, and St. Louis have an even better/diverse craft selection than I first thought, so I take back everything I said about those parks initially.
