Guide to beer, craft and otherwise, at Miller Park

The Local Brews bar at Miller Park looks like many Milwaukee pubs — minus the stools.

The new craft beer bar on the ballpark’s loge level is a bright feature of the $20 million renovation of the concourse and concession stands, in the largest upgrade to Miller Park since the facility opened in 2001.

Beer lovers can choose from 24 taps filled with Wisconsin beers.

Bring your thirst. And your wallet.

Four beers cost $14 for a 16-ounce gulp: One Barrel Brewing 5th Element rye IPA; Raised Grain Kilted Kolsch and Doc’s Red IPA; MobCraft Bat$h!t Crazy coffee brown ale; and Lake Louie Warped Speed Scotch ale.

Eight others cost $12: Lakefront IPA; O’so Big O Wheat Ale; Good City Motto American Pale Ale; Hinterland Cherry Wheat and its IPA; Karben4 Fantasy Factory American IPA; Rocky’ s Revenge Bourbon Brown Ale from Tyranena; and Upward Spiral IPA from Third Space.

The others cost $10 for the same amount of beer: Badger Club amber lager from Wisconsin Brewing;Milwaukee Brewing Citrus Happy IPA, its Lo-Gii Wheat and Outboard cream ale; Third Space Happy Place Pale Ale; Central Waters HHG Pale Ale; Miller Lite Pilsner; Lakefront Riverwest Stein amber lager; and Ciderboys seasonal cider from Stevens Point Brewery.

“Some are going to sell and some are going to go off the chain,” said Local Brews bartender Anton Duncan.

Beer also can be found at 10 carts dedicated to beer and pretzels and at one of two kiosks called Marketplace, said Ken Gaber, general manager for Sportservice at Miller Park. There are Marketplace kiosks on the field and club levels. Prices at the carts, which are on each level of the park, range from $7.75 to $9.75.

At food concessions stands, draft Miller beers cost $7 and $8.75.

A map guiding you to food and drink at the park can be accessed through the Ballpark App, available at the App Store on iTunes and through Google Play. The free MLB app has a section for Miller Park and allows fans to connect with guest services through Bernie Bot, upgrade seats, follow ballpark maps and more.

For those who don’t think that is enough variety, other brews available in cans in the park include Bell’s Oberon, New Glarus Spotted Cow, Redd’s Apple ale, Good City Motto, Third Space Happy Place, Hinterland IPA, Milwaukee Brewing Booyah, Milwaukee Brewing Louie’s Demise, MobCraft Oddball, Potosi Tangerine IPA, Badger Club Amber, and Leinenkugel Summer Shandy. Lakefront Brewery New Grist gluten-free beer is available in bottles.

There also are 10 cocktail stations in the park (each level has at least one) and two main bars — the Field Bar on the field level and the Terrace Bar on the terrace level, Gaber said.
