Bernie Brewer Historical Timeline:

  • August 1970: The Brewers drew a crowd of 44,387 on bat night, also drawing Milt, their adopted hero, down from his perch.
  • June 1973: Milt Mason passed away on June 12, 1973. The team dedicated their new mascot that year, Bernie Brewer, in Milt’s honor.
  • 1984: The bleachers at County Stadium were rebuilt and Bernie’s Chalet was replaced with a  sound tower, sending Bernie into early retirement.
  • 1993: Due to overwhelming demand, Bernie Brewer returned as the team’s mascot in 1993.

In addition, check out this brief video of the history of Bernie Brewer:

We’re also pleased to work with Southwest Airlines on this celebration, as there is a mutual “luv” between the two (if you’ll recall, Bernie made his trip to Spring Training thanks to Southwest earlier this year:

Spring Madness at Miller Park!

MB-13 SpringMadness-403x403-Social Graphic

Ok, let’s be honest Milwaukee, it hasn’t been the best Spring around here. It has been slow to warm up and we haven’t seen the sun very much, but before you know it, the roof will be open every game at Miller Park and summer will be in full swing. To get people ready for spring and summer, the Brewers are bringing back the ever-popular “Spring Madness” promotion beginning Monday at Miller Park and continuing through the three-game series with the Dodgers.

Fans can save 50% on all tickets $34 and less, plus small Pepsi products and Klement’s hot dogs are just $1 each. These seats include: Loge Outfield, Terrace Box, Terrace Reserved, Loge Bleachers, Field Bleachers and Bernie’s Terrace. The promotion excludes the Miller Lite Beerpen, All-Inclusive Areas and the $1 Uecker Seats. This is a fantastic deal to see the Brewers play the Dodgers, which will include a start from former Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke on Tuesday at Miller Park.

Those who were out early at Miller Park on Monday to get their Polish Racing Sausage lawn gnomes will enjoy two free tickets to one of the games as an early kick off to Spring Madness.

Last year we captured some Brewers fans who had their $1 hot dog tally in the 40s.  Sure they were groups of five, but that still averages out to eight hot dogs per person. Not bad. While Cait and I are concerned about the health of our readers next week, we would welcome any photo submissions from people who are able to beat that eight per person average.

Spring Madness

Spring Madness is a great way to kick off an eight-game homestand at Miller Park. After the Dodgers series, the Brewers will welcome the Pirates to Miller Park for a weekend series, May 24 – 26 and then their old American League Central rival, the Minnesota Twins for a two-game set, May 27 – 28. For tickets, call (414) 902-4000, visit Brewers.com/madness or stop by the Miller Park Box Office.
