#CookoutWithTheCrew: Brewers Host Pop-Up Tailgates
Today, we proved that there is such a thing as a free lunch as we hosted three “pop-up” or surprise tailgates around the city:
Around 11am this morning, we started posting messages on our social media platforms encouraging fans to come join us for lunch at noon.
When fans arrived at Bayshore Mall’s Town Square, outside UWM’s Student Union and at the park on Water Street, across from the Milwaukee Public Market, they were treated to a free hot dog or brat, chips and a drink, served up by Brewers players.
Mascots were also on hand and free bobbleheads were distributed.
This was just a fun way to get the players out in the community and show fans how much we appreciate them as we head into the last weeks of the 2015 season.
Here’s a look at the festivities and some of the fan reaction on social media from each location.

Relievers Will Smith and Tyler Thornburg were on hand to man the grills over at Bayshore.

Downtown on Water Street, across from the Milwaukee Public Market, pitchers Corey Knebel, Tyler Cravy and Taylor Jungmann served up a lunch that hit the spot:
And finally, on UWM’s campus (without any pre-promotion since we knew we’d have a huge volume of hungry college kids to feed), Jeremy Jeffress, Logan Schafer and Scooter Gennett dished out grub and posed for many selfies:
The #CookoutWithTheCrew caused quite the buzz around the city over the lunch hour, so much so that we were trending:
