Time to Take Your Tailgate Up a Notch with Brewers Tailgate Games

The weather is finally turning nice and warm and it seems like (I hope, at least)  summer is here to stay for awhile.

So why not consider ramping up your tailgate with our Homestand Highlight from the Brewers Team Store by Majestic?

Homestand 8 - The Ultimate Tailgate

Brewers Tailgate Games. Choose from Baseball Toss, Washer Toss or Ladderball. They are Brewers-branded, easy to assemble and fun for all ages.

Want a chance to show off your skills?

If you’re here for a Sunday game, be sure to stop by the Brewers Merchandise Trailers located near the Sausage Haus or Helfaer Field for a chance to compete in the Tailgate Games Challenge (bean bag toss and baseball toss)! Winners will receive $10 in “Bernie Bucks” which can be used toward merchandise in the Team Stores at Miller Park! And, if you don’t win, you still walk away happy because you’ll get a voucher to redeem at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic in the Hot Corner for a personalized key chain.

Brewers tailgate essentials are also available online at the brewers.com shop.  In addition, we’ve created a Pinterest board dedicated to tailgating–visit it to keep up with the latest tailgate gear, checklists, tip and more.

Time to Take Your Tailgate Up a Notch

With the Travel Channel’s Adam Richman set to visit Miller Park this weekend to film Brewers fans and their tailgates for the new show Fandemonium, now is the perfect time to reflect on your tailgating habits.

With tailgating so ingrained in us as Wisconsinites, it is easy to fall into a routine: BYOB, Tony’s bringing the grill, Kristen is bringing the tent, Nikki is making her famous pasta salad… maybe you’ve got a game of bags and/or a special playlist. While you definitely don’t need to fix what isn’t broken, like anything in life there is probably still some room for improvement.

So, to help you out, we’ve got a handy Tailgate Checklist:

Brewers Ultimate Tailgate Checklist

plus, some Tailgating Tips:

Did we forget any essentials? Got a special tip of your own? Post them in the comments below or email them to JohnandCait@brewers.com. We’ll compile some of the best ones here on the blog.

And finally, consider spicing up your tailgate with our Homestand Highlight from the Brewers Team Store by Majestic: Brewers Tailgate Games. Choose from Baseball Toss, Washer Toss or Ladderball ($80 each). They are Brewers-branded, easy to assemble and fun for all ages. Want a chance to show off your skills? If you’re here for a Sunday game, be sure to stop by the Brewers Merchandise Trailers located near the Sausage Haus or Helfaer Field for a chance to compete in tailgate games and win “Bernie Bucks” which can be used toward merchandise in the Team Stores at Miller Park!
