Happy PGA Championship Week! Enter to Win Tix to Golf Night at Miller Park and a Cap Signed by Kyle Lohse!

It’s PGA Championship Week and the 2014 tournament is underway today at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky.

As you know by now, I love golf, so you can be sure I’ll be watching in between ballgames this weekend.

But NEXT YEAR, I will be heading up to Whistling Straits in Kohler as the 2015 tournament will be held here in Wisconsin August 10-16.

And, in case you missed it, this Saturday, along with the PGA of America and Kohler Co., we’ll be celebrating Golf Night at Miller Park with all sorts of fun activities and opportunities for fans.

You may recall that earlier this season, we assisted the 2015 PGA Championship in kicking off its ticket pre-registration period in late April by hosting defending PGA Champion Jason Dufner at Miller Park. During his visit, Dufner had a little fun with Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse.

Orange Dreamsicle Custard from AJ Bombers

During each homestand, I’ll sample some of the latest and greatest Miller Park fare and review it here, for you.

One of the most fun, new additions to Miller Park this season has been AJ Bombers. The popular restaurant and bar-with locations in Milwaukee and Madison-now occupies the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.

AJ Bombers offers a selection of cheeseburgers, egg rolls, tater tots, shakes, custards, specialty concrete mixers and more. The menu also include homestand specials, such as the player-themed burgers and opposing team-themed concrete mixers, like this one, here for the Giants Series only: Orange Dreamsicle.

I’ll be sure to check in with AJ Bombers often throughout the season to keep you informed on their newest menu items, just like I have been with the ever-popular Double Clutch!

RBI Championship Game Played at Miller Park

Reviving Baseball in the Inner Cities, or the RBI Program, is a MLB youth baseball initiative and partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs. The RBI program was developed by former scout and Major Leaguer John Young in Los Angeles in 1989 to provide youth ages 9 to 17 the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of baseball.

This weekend, we were proud to host the 2014 RBI Central Regional Tournament in Milwaukee! Seven leagues competed in the junior, senior and softball divisions over the weekend, with the championship game played at Miller Park today.

Congratulations to these three teams who will advance to the RBI World Series game in Texas!

Want to help support the RBI Program? It’s as simple as sending a tweet!

When a Brewers pitcher strikes out an opposing batter, make sure to jump on Twitter and tweet: #WHIFF  and include our handle, @Brewers.

That’s all you have to do! Each month, if we’re in the top 7 teams, we can win anywhere from $2,500 to $10,000 for our local RBI program. AND the team with the most #Whiff tweets for the season will receive an additional $20,000 donation! 

We won $7500 the last three months, so keep tweeting as our chances to help the local program are looking good! View the current standings at mlb.com/whiff.

JOIN THE MILWAUKEE BREWERS AND THE 2015 PGA CHAMPIONSHIP FOR ‘GOLF NIGHT AT MILLER PARK’ ON AUGUST 9  

My worlds are colliding! We’re hosting GOLF NIGHT AT MILLER PARK!

Today, we, along with the PGA of America and Kohler Co., are pleased to announce that “Golf Night at Miller Park” will take place when the Brewers host the Los Angeles Dodgers at 6:10 p.m. CT on Saturday, August 9.

The game falls just prior to the year-out mark of the 2015 PGA Championship, which is preparing to make its third visit to Whistling Straits in nearby Kohler, Wis., August 10-16, 2015. Fans hoping to attend the 2015 PGA Championship should complete the free and required online ticket pre-registration by August 10 at www.PGAChampionship.com in order to be eligible to purchase tickets during the public sale, which will run August 11-30, 2014.

“Baseball and golf are two of Wisconsin’s most beloved games, and we’re thrilled to celebrate ‘Golf Night at Miller Park’ with the Milwaukee Brewers and the team’s great fans as we continue the countdown to Whistling Straits,” said 2015 PGA Championship Director Jason Mengel. “We’re also very excited to be tracking near record levels of ticket pre-registration for the 2015 PGA Championship, and would encourage everyone to pre-register at www.PGAChampionship.com by the quickly approaching August 10 deadline.”

The Milwaukee Brewers assisted the 2015 PGA Championship in kicking off its ticket pre-registration period in late April by hosting defending PGA Champion Jason Dufner at Miller Park.

As you may recall, during his visit, Dufner had a little fun with Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse, who ended up losing a bet to the golfer.
