Going to a baseball game is pretty spectacular way to spend a summer afternoon or evening. You watch the game, you enjoy the weather, you chat with your friends, you do the wave, you eat a hot dog, you drink domestic light beers that cost like 10 bucks each.

But what if there were ways to make the experience even better? Well, I’m here to tell you that there are.


1) Don’t do the wave. The wave is stupid. Why stand up when you can keep sitting down?

2) Drink better beer.

America’s major league ballparks are doing shamefully little to deal with the wave menace. But they’re helping you out with the second one by offering local craft beers in addition to the usual Lite suspects. That’s pretty awesome — even if, like the macrobrews, the craft beers are way overpriced.

Here are some of the best local craft beers available at MLB ballparks:

Jack’s Abby House Lager at Fenway Park in Boston

Goose Island 1060 Wit at Wrigley Field in Chicago

Bell’s Oberon Ale at Comerica Park in Detroit

Boulevard Brewing Co. Beer at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City

Sixpoint Bengali at Citi Field in New York

Stone Beer at Petco Park in San Diego

Anchor Brewing Orange Splash at AT&T Park in San Francisco

Bale Breaker Field 41 Pale Ale at Safeco Field in Seattle

Urban Chestnut Brewing Company Beer at Busch Stadium in St. Louis
