Few things go together like beer and baseball and several Major League Baseball teams are capitalizing on the natural combination.
By now, most professional baseball teams have captured craft beer, it's big business and offers excellent selections at specialist kiosks and in some cases throughout the stadium. Others have moved away from Budweiser and Miller as their beer sponsors and have instead gone with craft companies. The teams we listed, however, did everything possible and created beers with local breweries.
Kansas City Royals + Boulevard Brewing
Boulevard Brewing is a Midwest food, and providing a beer in collaboration with Kansas City Royals hometown is a natural choice. The brewery releases ¡Vamos !, a Mexican-style lager, in the entire Royals Regional Observation Area, as well as in the Kauffman Stadium. Crispy beer is an ideal drink for long summer days in Kansas City.
Houston Astros + Karbach Brewing Co.
Trying to deepen the connection with the fans, the Houston Astros and Karbach Brewing organization tried to make a drinking beer with dad in a baseball game. The two organizations invented Crawford Bock, a nod to the popularity of other beers in Texas, such as Shiner Bock. Part of the price of each Crawford Bock also goes to the Astros Foundation, whether it's a game, a bar or a shop. 4.5 percent alcohol by volume, malt beer is ideal for a trip to Minute Maid Park or anywhere else under the hot Texas sun.
New York Yankees + Blue Point Brewing
The use of Blue Point Brewing from New Zealand hop Motueka in NY Pinstripe Pilsner gives the balanced and light beer a little bit of lime. Pinstripe Pilsner will be available at the New York Yankees games throughout the season at the Bleachers Bar in Yankee Stadium. Combining ERA and Crawford Bock, Pinstripe Pilsner is one of three MLB beers produced by breweries in the AB-InBev craft portfolio, a natural evolution in the beer and baseball experience for Budweiser producers.
San Francisco Giants + Anchor Brewing Co.
The pioneer of the craft beer industry has done a lot, so why not get into the game of baseball beer? Anchor created a Mexican style beer named Los Gigantes in 2017. They didn't stop at a special beer, as Anchor also released a special edition of the San Francisco-branded 12-pack of the iconic Anchor Steam. Beers are available in northern California. Anchor also produced the Force in Numbers with the Golden State Warriors.
Tampa Rays + Green Bench Brewing
The Green Bench Brewing in Tampa has produced several beers for the Tampa Rays, including the Two Seam Blonde Ale, produced for the first time in 2016. A nod to the fast-fast-two that some pitchers throw into the game, the blonde beer probably won't remove the hair from the chin like its namesake. AAlso available at the Tropicana Field, the Four Seam Lager by Green Bench.
Colorado Rockies + SandLot Brewery
The Rocky Mountains have been in the artisan game for a long time, largely because built in Coors Field is The SandLot Brewery, an incredible award-winning brewery run by Coors and the place where the venerable Blue Moon crafted beer began. . Sure, it's not a specific beer made for a baseball team, but it's hard to beat a brewery in the ballpark! Furthermore, it is only open during the baseball season.
Atlanta Braves + Terrapin Brewing ATL Brew Lab
The Rockies have some competition with the small Terrapin Brewing brewpub in the Atlanta Braves SunTrust Park, which opened in 2017. The five-barrel brewery offers a lot of experimentation power for Terrapin and the bathroom is open all year. Like SandLot, Terrapin has connections to MillerCoors. They could do something with this brewery thing at stake.
Boston Red Sox + Boston Beer Company
The defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox should not be left behind. After finally having Boston Beer Co., creators of Samuel Adams Boston Lager, join as a beer sponsor last year, the brewery triggered a special double celebratory New England IPA after the Fall Classic win. Damage Done is a large and tasty IPA aged on vanilla beans with guava, mango and lactose.
Washington Nationals + Devil & # 39; s Backbone Brewing
