You’ll be able to climb a big Mountain Dew can at Miller Park next year

Tom Haudricourt reports on some improvements to the concession/entertainment/retail parts of Miller Park for 2013. Among them:

The Dew Deck, a seating area above the rightfield bleachers that dates to Miller Park’s opening year, will be renovated to include a 25-foot high rock climbing wall, designed in the shape of a can of Mountain Dew.

Thoughts:

  • It’s quite brave of Milwaukee to wade into the dangerous business of soda-themed ballpark playground equipment after the experience in San Francisco. That said …
  • The fact that it’s a can of soda and not a can of beer further illustrates how far the Brewers have strayed from their mission. First they came for Bernie Brewer’s beer stein slide and replaced it with this thing, and I said nothing, for I did not slide into steins of beer. Then they came for …

When’s Opening Day again?

    It’s about damn time! Fans have been clamoring for this for decades.

      An ugly ballpark gets even worse. For a (relatively) new venue, Miller sure has a lot of gimmicks inside. But I guess when you’re so drunk you can’t see straight, who cares?

        Clearly you have never been to Miler Park… Oh I bet you think Wrigley is nice… Douche Canoe

    With a few more improvements like this, you won’t even have to watch baseball when you go…to…a…baseball…game.

    I’ll allow it only of it is a Throwback Dew.

    As long as people keep walking through the gates, and Mr. A keeps spending that money on improving the team, I have no problem with promotional crap like this.

    Michael Bloomberg does not approve.

    These ass holes should just pack in the “Brewers” thing and call the park Mountain Dew Field. Own your history boys. You are called the BREWERS. Milwaukee is known for its suds. You used to have mascots jumping into beer steins and now, apparently in this sensitive time in which we live where 12 year old kids can’t see certain things because they will cry like the pussies we have raised them to be, its all about the soda and being family friendly.

    I’m SO tired of this nonsense. Beer is okay. Beer is legal. When your team is called the BREWERS what are the idiots kids running around Milwaukee supposed to think?

    “Hey mom…I think it’s so cool that we have a team that is called the Brewers. Can we go to the soda brewing factory?”

    Our culture is so fucking off.
