A .143 craft beer winning percentage for the Bats.

The Louisville Bats are in the midst of a homestand before packing off to Toledo on Friday. Over at Potable Curmudgeon, I've been using the home fields of the club's opponents to illustrate Louisville's lamentable record in support for craft beer. Just the other day, a team employee wrote me to suggest that my oratory isn't reaching the proper targets within the hierarchy, which presumably might express solidarity. Toward this end, I was told to contact the Centerplate official primarily responsible for craft beer's current degraded plight.

Maybe some day.

Possibility ... what?


Probably no craft beer options for Gwinnett Braves games at Coolray Field, so the Bats finally win one.

The Louisville Bats recently concluded a slate of games in Georgia, where the Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves plays its games in the outer suburbs of the city -- a novel arrangement, to be sure.

The Gwinnett Braves also appear to be the initial exception that proves the rule, seeing as there seems to be little in the way of craft beer available at Coolray Field.

Gwinnett Braves: A great experiment or failed endeavor?

I'll leave it at that. The Louisville Bats have two craft beers on tap, albeit well hidden, so we'll give Centerplate the win this time.

Season record: Opponents 6, Bats/Centerplate 1.


If you can find where the Charlotte Knights play, there's craft beer there.

Craft beer at Lehigh Valley IronPigs baseball games.

Buffalo Bisons, Coca Cola Field, and local craft beer access.

Indianapolis Indians, Victory Field and a merciful end to "don't ask, don't tell" in local craft beer access.

Toledo Mud Hens view locally brewed craft beer as positive enticement. Imagine that.
