Just returned from our trip to Milwaukee and all I can say is "wow." My husband and I were instantly impressed with the Brewer fan base. The tailgating was incredible - and unlike anything I'd ever seen at a baseball game. We were wondering if folks do that 80 times a summer....
We walked over to the Sausage Haus, which is across the freeway from Miller Park, just to check out all the tailgating and listen to a band that was playing. When we got there we soon realized that you needed a ticket to get into the seating area. We were a little bummed, but then our luck changed....a total stranger gave us two tickets to the all you can eat buffet - which included three free beers per person. Needless to say, we were thrilled.
The food inside the ballpark was impressive....brats, your traditional stuff, baked potatoes, fried ravioli, pasta, noodles and bloody mary's.
A few tips for those that haven't been to Miller yet:
If you are a beer drinker, take a small cooler of beer with you. You can walk around the parking lot and drink before going into the park. At $7.75 a beer inside, it is well worth it to BYOB.
We ate lunch at the park and found the best value was the baked potatoes on the 1st level concourse. They were a little less than $7 and we were completley stuffed after eating them. Two plus two bottled waters totalled about $21....not bad.
If you stay downtown, it'll cost you around $14 to take a cab to the field...one way....
Milwaukee has a cool Riverwalk and a pretty neat public market....I only wish we'd made more time to see some of the sights and take a brewery tour.
Overall, one of the better parks we've been to if for no other reason that the crowd of tailgaters and beer drinkers.
