A beer nerd’s guide to baseball: Ranking every stadium by craft beer offerings

1. T-Mobile Park, Seattle
Top beer: 10
Average beer: 10
Accessibility: 10

The craft beer scene in Seattle is in full bloom, and its ballpark has followed suit. Pacific Northwest labels Fremont Brewing, Reuben’s Brews, Georgetown Brewing, Bale Breaker, Black Raven Brewing, Ecliptic Brewing, Ninkasi Brewing, and even the smaller pFriem Family Brewers all have beers available at the ballpark. There’s a $6 (!) can deal every year, and one year it was a hazy IPA from Georgetown Brewing called Bodhizafa. Practically every food vendor has a craft tap, and there are cans in the aisles.

And not only does this place run on craft beer, but it also has a stand behind home plate (section 129) that boasts hard-to-find cask, barrel-aged and specialty beers on a rotating basis. The list of rare beer releases at that stand last year was enough to excite even the most “hardcore of beer geeks” as Washington Beer Blog put it. Whether you want a cheap can of a crushable IPA, something hazy and local on tap, or something hard to find — you’re not far from it in Seattle, which is the crown jewel of craft beer in baseball.

World Series fan takes home-run ball to the chest rather than spilling his beers

Life is nothing but a series of choices and we are nothing but creatures trying to make the right decision about whatever comes flying our way.

Like, for example, if you’re at the World Series, a home run ball is flying right at you and you have a beer in each hand, what do you do? Well, if you’re Washington Nationals fan Jeff Adams, you’re obviously an elevated species.

Met with this exact predicament Sunday night during Game 5 of the World Series, Adams took the home-run ball to the chest, didn’t spill the beers and he even retrieved the ball. Behold this moment of fan greatness

Well, with prices being what they are, what would you have done?
