Oakland A’s to lower stadium beer prices

We can’t afford Josh Donaldson, but we can afford cheap beer!

In a video posted to the A’s Facebook page, Kaval revealed that a 20-ounce serving of one of the 77 beers on tap will cost $10 for premium selections and $8 for domestic during the 2017 season. Comparatively, a 12-ounce beer at the Coliseum cost $5 in 2016, or about $.43 an ounce, according to Team Marketing Report. The discounted domestic beer will cost three cents less per ounce.  According to Kaval, the Coliseum now offers the cheapest beer of any Bay Area stadium.

The Glory Days of Baseball and Beer Marketing

Beer, is there anything it can’t do?

Anheuser-Busch led a major offensive to boost Budweiser’s presence in the Chicago market. How did they accomplish that? By being a major sponsor of Cubs broadcasts on WGN-TV and enlisting Harry Caray in the marketing efforts. When WGN-TV started broadcasts Cubs games nationally on cable, Wrigley Field was presented as a sun-drenched nirvana, paving the way for the party atmosphere that exists today. Producer Arne Harris never missed a chance to show an attractive young woman in the bleachers drinking a Bud—shots always appreciated by Caray. Today, Budweiser is the major beer sponsor for Wrigley Field.

RTFA and you’ll really want a cold one. Lots of beer and some old-time photos at the link.

A baseball ticket in Texas costs less than a beer at the Rogers Centre does

It’s cheaper to buy a seat for a Jays’ playoff game in Texas (as low as $8) than to drink a beer ($10) while watching the playoffs at the Rogers Centre.
