It may be the offseason, but American Family Field will be bustling like a gameday this weekend as the Brewers will host their annual clubhouse sale this Friday and Saturday at the ballpark.
Hosted both days from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. in Craig Counsell's new domain, aka the visitor's clubhouse, the Brew Crew sale will feature all sorts of team merchandise, memorabilia, apparel, game-used gear and beyond – complete with deals saving fans up to 80 percent off.
As an added bonus for Brewers fans, every purchase of $100 or more at this year's sale will come complete with the choice of either a free team tumbler or water bottle. To help keep fans fueled during the shopping spree, free lemonade will be available during the sale courtesy of Northwestern Mutual, while over at J. Leinenkugel's Barrel Yard, kids will eat free during sale hours with the purchase of an entree dish.
For some bonus good to go along with the good deals, during the sale, fans will have the chance to round-up their purchases at the register in support of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a non-profit organization that funds research, raises awareness and aids families dealing with childhood cancer. At the end of the two-day extravaganza, the Northwestern Mutual Foundation will also match the total amount raised from those round-up donations.
Don't wanna whiff like Jesse Winker on these deals? The sales begin at 8 a.m. on both Friday, Dec. 1 and Saturday, Dec. 2, with fans able to enter from the left field entrance. For those who want to score some savings before Friday's first pitch, though, suiteholders and full-season seat holders will get early access to the sale starting Wednesday, Nov. 29 from noon until 6 p.m., with all season seat holders getting early access as well beginning Thursday, Nov. 30 from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Entry and parking are both free throughout the sale.
And hey, only 75 days until pitchers and catchers report and the Brew Crew's revenge tour against Craig Counsell and the Cubs officially begins!
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
