All-Star Wine, but no All-Star Beer?

June 14th, 2013 by Ceetar in 2013, All-Star Game, Baseball, beer, Citi Field

There is a 2013 MLB All-Star Wine available from Purlieu Wines. ┬áThis is fine, I’m all for specialized products celebrating the 2013 game at Citi Field. Of course, this product was put together with about as little effort as one could manage. The URL for the site still reads 2012, and it’s just a simple bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon with the game logo on the label. The description doesn’t even mention the Mets, or New York. Additionally, it’s from Napa Valley. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, there are a ton of nice wineries on Long Island that are local and would probably love to sell one of their wines for this event.


And there is no beer. You can specifically tailor a beer to the event and it takes much less time to brew for production than wine. There are dozens of appropriate breweries in New York that could provide something fun. Even Ommegang, the brewery located in the same town as the Hall of Fame, would be a great choice. They brew a special beer for Game of Thrones, I imagine they could spare a couple of barrels for the Midsummer Classic. Think about how neat it would be for the baseball Hall of Fame to feature a collection of bottles from each game?


Regardless, there seems to be no All-Star Beer. Citi Field’s beer selection isn’t horrible, but it has about as many All-Stars as the Mets do. It’s disappointing that the event seems so corporate sometimes it’s hard to get some of this personalization. Never mind that Budweiser is a huge MLB sponsor and would probably do their best to nix any non-Budweiser beer being celebrated anyway.

    I’m not sure how I feel about wine for this event but you need to do some research b/c what you are saying isn’t true. The website doesn’t say it’s for the 2012 All-Star game, the wine is a 2012 vintage. And you should read the back label on the wine, it references both New York and the Mets.

      the URL says 2012-mlb. Maybe it means vintage, but then it should say 2012-cab-mlb.

      There was no back label linked on the site.

Let’s Go Mets!
