Is there anything more American than baseball and beer? We don’t think so! With stadium names such as Miller Park, Coors Field and Anheuser-Busch, it clear that beer has big presence in baseball. Sipping an ice cold beer and watching a baseball game on a hot summer day has long been one of America’s favorite past-times…
“I think it’s just that atmosphere of a baseball game and having a beer—and maybe a hot dog or brat or hamburger or something of that nature, or peanuts—and just sitting there and sipping on a good beer is always a delight. It seems like the fans always enjoy that, and I do too. But what really intrigues me at that time and at that moment with all the other things that go on in the world, bad, indifferent, good, whatever, at that moment you’re letting your inhibitions down and watching America’s pastime. You’re just relaxed, you can let that stuff go. You prefer a win to a loss, but there’s something about that that’s very intriguing and nice, I believe.” – Beer Bob Gillis
And the joy doesn’t stop there. Thanks to the craft beer craze, fans are no longer forced to spent top dollar for subpar beers. Many stadiums have upped their micro-brew and local brewery offerings, making watching the game much more pleasurable.
Philadelphia – Home of the Perfect Pub Crawl
The city of Philadelphia has been a beer city since the turn of the American Revolution and was known as the greatest brewing city of the Western Hemisphere up until Prohibition in 1920s. Today, Citizens Bank Park, home to the Phanatic’s fans, offers a wide variety of local craft and micro-brews.
Since the craft beer explosion that began in the late 1980s, Philadelphia has regained its reputation as one of the premier beer cities in the nation and around the world. ‘GQ’ dubbed Philadelphia as the Home of the Perfect Pub Crawl.
