The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are adding four craft beers from two different local breweries this season. This is nice to see, especially that the manager of premium services at Angels Stadium says it was his number request last year.
I’ve been harping on the Mets for their lack of publicly available local craft beer. Last year they cut out the local Brooklyn Brewery beers present in previous years. Now one of the only beer not distributed byAnheuser Busch is Blue Point’s Toasted Lager at Catch of the Day.
The Mets and Aramark have been pretty good at adding new food and drink at Citi Field, and there’s a preview event tonight featuring at least the new foods, so I’m going to reserve further judgement on the Mets beer situation until Opening Day. Still, it’s nice to see the craft beer revolution catching on in baseball stadiums, even ones in California.
