Scenes from #BrewersSocial: Recapping Brewers Social Media Night

Thank you to all of the fans who came out to Brewers Social Media Night tonight–and thank you to everyone who follows us on all of our social platforms year-round. We love seeing your photos and engaging with you. And, at events like these, it is great meeting you in person, too!

We had a great crowd of over 250 fans for our special event tonight, which started out with fans checking in at Helfaer Field and receiving their special t-shirt featuring the #BrewersTeamSelfie:

Fans Cheering

Fans then had the opportunity to take selfies of their own with the FOX Sports Wisconsin Girls, Bernie Brewer (a #MVT in his own right) and the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages while waiting for the #BrewersMVT ceremony to begin.

Last month, fans elected Carlos Gomez the 2014 #BrewersMVT…. yes, that’s right…M-V-T. Most valuable tweeter. This is the first year that we’ve bestowed this award and, as you know, since so many of the Brewers players are active on Twitter, there was some stiff competition. But, you voted with your hashtags and your heart and selected Brewers All-Star and Gold Glove Winner Carlos Gomez as your favorite follow.

Perhaps it was the #BrewersTeamSelfie that put him over the edge, his photos of his teammates sleeping on the plane, or his fondness for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but whatever it was, it’s clear that Carlos Gomez keeps you entertained, not only on the field, but online as well.

We had a special award waiting for Carlos:

Brewers Radio Announcer (and avid tweeter) Joe Block was on hand to emcee the event:

Joe was about to present Carlos with his Golden Hashtag, but instead, Carlos surprised us all by pulling a fan out of the crowd to give it to him. “The fans voted for me, they should present it,” he said.

Ever the “social” butterfly, Carlos pulled out his phone and took a video of the crowd, which he posted to Instagram and Twitter on the spot:

Following the award ceremony, Carlos answered a few questions that had been tweeted in advance from fans. Then, we drew a grand prize: A Carlos Gomez package featuring the opportunity to take a selfie with Carlos on the field. Here’s the result:

Many other fans walked away with prize packages as well:

Following the event, fans went inside Miller Park to watch the Crew take on the Marlins.

Here are some “best-of” tweets and Instagram posts from the fans throughout the night. You can find a comprehensive stream at brewers.com/socialmedianight.

 

Thank you also to FOX Sports Wisconsin for their coverage of our event:

 

Thank you once again to those who were able to join us and  those of you who follow us on social all year long! You make my job fun!

Oh, yes–one more thing.  Just a quick reminder that we’re closing in on one million fans on Facebook. If you’re not already following us there, please do! When we reach that milestone, one lucky fan will win a VIP package.
