ON MILWAUKEE: You'll want to drink here: 11 photos of Miller Park's new Brew Crew Bar
The Milwaukee Brewers added a fun new way for their tailgate-loving fans to pregame this season, teaming with Block Party Suites to create the Brew Crew Bar in the Yount lot on the east side of Miller Park.
The pop-up party destination will debut on Opening Day, when the Brewers host the Colorado Rockies, but the media got a preview Friday. The Brew Crew Bar will feature live entertainment, including DJs and music sets; multiple bars serving beer, mixed drinks and soft drinks; lounge furniture items like couches, chairs and low- and high-top tables; outdoor heaters to keep fans warm for chilly April nights; tailgate games, such as the ever-popular cornhole; phone chargers so people can continue Snapchating their experience; and premium suite options offering rooftop viewing platforms and satellite TV with surround sound.
The Brew Crew Bar will be open to the public for approximately 40 games in 2017, including Opening Day, all Saturday and Sunday games, and some select Friday night contests. For many of the remaining games, the Bar will be available for private group rentals.
Here are ... photos of the new Brew Crew Bar; it should look even more awesome when shivering media members on an early-Spring gray day are replaced by smiling, beer-drinking fans on a resplendent summer weekend.
