Excitement for the Brewers' upcoming season is starting to heat up – but first, it's gonna get real cold as the annual Arctic Tailgate will get fans freezing for their seats on Feb. 14-15.
In addition to serving as the first change for fans to purchase Brewers single-game regular season tickets – with the box office opening at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15 at Miller Park, online and over the phone at (414) 902-4000 – the Arctic Tailgate is also just a fun gathering for Milwaukee fans, celebrating before the season and getting that tailgate into midseason form.
Fans will be allowed to start putting up their tents in the Miller Park parking lots as early as noon on Friday, Feb. 14, with the official party beginning at 3 p.m. with live music courtesy of Mission Accomplished; appearances from Brewers alumni, the racing sausages and Bernie Brewer; live radio broadcasts from 620 WTMJ and ESPN Milwaukee; and fun games and competitions, such as a cornhole tournament and a trivia contest, to help fans stay busy and warm – and maybe even win some awesome Brewers gear, autographs and memorabilia in the process. And to help fuel your fandom, the Arctic Tailgate will serve up free Johnsonville brats and beverages Friday night as well as free doughnuts the next morning from Grebe's Bakery.
As a bonus, the first 250 fans who stay overnight will receive a special commemorative Arctic Tailgate t-shirt – though, important to note, fans will not be allowed to stay overnight if the temperatures are projected to drop below 10 degrees. It may be called the Arctic Tailgate, but they're not crazy.
And only 14 days until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training – so start getting pumped for your new look Brew Crew (and also warmer temperatures)!
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.
