Ballparks and Breweries: AL West



I stole this idea from one of my friends because it’s probably the greatest idea in the world if you love beer (especially craft beer) and baseball. When I ran into my friend Joe very randomly at Camden Yards he told me that his friends and him not only visit ballparks every year, but they make sure to hit up the local breweries as well. I think that’s an awesome spin on visiting all 30 MLB parks, so I compiled a list of some local breweries in every city, which I will split up into six posts. What makes this list even better is some of the brewery tours are free and have samples at the end. Sure beats paying $6+ for a beer at the ballpark! 😉

  1. That settles it. I’m heading to a Mariners series just for that beer list! I’ll be doing my own ballpark craft beer research at Citizens Bank Park this week for a Phillies game. I’m looking forward to that more than I am to the game. Well, not quite but… yes…yes I am.

    Great blog concept, BTW.
