It’s been widely known for a long time that when it comes to fan experience, Sox Park has far exceeded Wrigley Field. It’s not debatable. Better amenities, a multitude of food options, and better and more plentiful beer choices.
Oh, and parking is pretty nice, too!
But this year Wrigley Field is finally stepping up their beer game to cater to what fans have been clamoring for: options. Starting this year, local beer brands such as Half Acre, Revolution, Lagunitas, Bells, and Three Floyds will be readily available, as will smaller, lesser known labels from hometown breweries like Begyle, Cruz Blanca.
Finally, a line up at the taps worthy of the lineup on the field!
Don’t worry fans of poor beer, you can still get your generic Anheuser-Busch products like Bud and Bud Light. Michelob Ultra will be there, and yes – Old Style at limited locations.
Conversely, here’s a look at some of the beer names you will find at 35th and Shields:
Two Brothers (Wheaton), Three Floyds (Munster), 18th Street (Chicago), 350 Brewing (Tinley Park), Brickstone (Bourbonnais), Blue Island, Hop Butcher, Metal Monkey (Romeoville), Pollyanna (Lemont/Roselle), Tribes (Mokena)…and the list goes on and on and on.
A tip of the hat to Wrigley for finally joining the rest of us in this decade, but for my money, you can’t beat the southside…on-field product notwithstanding.
