Great Beer Hits America's Baseball Stadiums

Beer in the ballpark used to be even more boring than a scoreless pitchers' duel. The scant offerings included the usual suspects like Bud, Miller, Coors and their watery, innocuous kin. I'll grant that these beers have their place during hot, sweaty summer afternoons. However, they're not worth the highway-robbery pricing. We understand the concept of supply and demand, but a 10-buck Bud is a crime against beer.

While we don't foresee beer prices ever getting any cheaper at ballparks, stadiums have smartened up to craft beer. Light and fizzy lagers are now accompanied by aromatic pale ales, hoppy IPAs, prickly pilseners and cloudy wheat brews that are every bit as excellent as the home team winning on a walk-off homerun. Here are some of the craft beers to seek out at ballparks this year.
