Happy Place beer at Miller Park
A very Happy Place

Christian Yelich

Beer: Happy Place Pale Ale
Third Space Brewing
Incredibly smooth and exciting. This ale frequently surprises you with just how consistently good it is. This beer is the MVB of Miller Park (in my humble opinion). And it helps make the ballpark a happy place indeed.

Erik Kratz

Beer: Oktoberfest
Good City Brewing or City Lights Brewing
Sure it’s an older style, but an Oktoberfest is perfect for the season. You don’t consider Oktoberfests much in the summer, but when fall rolls around they’re ready to play. This style isn’t flashy but it gets the job done when you least expect it.

Lorenzo Cain

Beer: Moon Man Pale Ale
New Glarus Brewing
The pale ale is an outstanding representation of the style. It’s extremely reliable and has a low ABV, which makes it the perfect table setter to start the day (or an inning).

Ryan Braun

Beer: High Life
Miller Brewing Company
It’s been there for you at the ballpark for a long time and has been a part of some big Brewers moments. Other beer drinkers may have decided to make the switch to new, trendier brews, but you stick to the one you know and feel comfortable with.

Mike Moustakas

Milwaukee Brewing Company
It’s relatively new to the area but for some reason feels like it’s been around for years. It’s a perfect fit for the Milwaukee beer drinker. The citrusy brew exceeds expectations and comes up big in the clutch.

Jesus Aguilar

Beer: Driftwood Porter
Raised Grain Brewing
This beer may be smooth but it can pack a punch with its 6.5% ABV. Keep an eye on this bold choice when you’re at the ballpark.

Craig Counsell

Beer: Riverwest Stein
Lakefront Brewery
It’s a Milwaukee original. A savvy veteran of the beer scene. It’s never a bad decision.


Beer: Various
Various Brewers
You don’t necessarily have a favorite Brewer or a favorite brewer, but you like to mix and match. It’s a slightly unorthodox approach, but you are adept at putting beer combinations together during the course of the game that get the job done.
