Jan 27, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

The Brewers ran a uniform design contest last month. The winner was announced this morning:

They’re designed by Ben Peters of Richfield, Minnesota, who won a trip to spring training along with 10 shirts and hats using his mock-up. The Brewers will wear the unis on March 22 against the Cubs in Arizona and March 30 against the White Sox at Milwaukee’s Miller Park. Here’s a look at the finished product:

    That’s pretty bad-ass! I always loved Beer Barrel Man.

    What the heck is going on with his nose?

    • ezthinking - Jan 27, 2013 at 3:09 PM

      His head is the top of a still. http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQdwBaoRjF8h-QniISqEfpS2Su1JmpayNWooLfE-txAWmKazAMgi_Ah-S92

      I like the uni’s – not the hat.

        It’s not a still, it’s the tap of a keg.
        Think beer, not moonshine.

      • ezthinking - Jan 27, 2013 at 5:46 PM

        If that’s the tap of a keg, then you’ve never been to a kegger.

        Channeling your inner ‘cepts? It’s an old fashioned wooden keg tap. For beer.

    Not a Brewers fan, but those actually look pretty good.

    Those hats obviously made through the leagues hat testing policy due to issues involving a failed chain of custody.

  5. staviesteelo - Jan 27, 2013 at 2:54 PM

    Those hats are god awful

  6. tkushy - Jan 27, 2013 at 3:05 PM

    Love the jersey not the hat.

    • jarathen - Jan 28, 2013 at 8:50 AM

      Agreed. Great jersey. Not a great hat.

  7. ruffridin - Jan 27, 2013 at 3:06 PM

    The jersey is top notch. Well done

  8. m3dman3 - Jan 27, 2013 at 3:21 PM

    I’m not a Brewers fan but I will be first in line to purchase one of those hats. BADASS!!

  9. Stiller43 - Jan 27, 2013 at 3:24 PM

    What a terrible hat

  10. hcf95688 - Jan 27, 2013 at 3:36 PM

    They should embrace the “MB/glove” logo cap and stick with it

  11. Al - Jan 27, 2013 at 3:44 PM

    I like the idea with the hat, it just doesn’t come out looking very good. The jerseys are great though.

  12. wiguy25 - Jan 27, 2013 at 4:00 PM

    What a joke of a franchise

  13. riverace19 - Jan 27, 2013 at 4:14 PM

    Jersey very cool. Hat ridiculous.
    Absolutely ridiculous

    I like the jersey, not sure about the hat although I’ve always liked barrelman. Neat contest though. Hope they do this every year or every few years.

  16. dondada10 - Jan 27, 2013 at 4:40 PM

    Anybody remember these:

  17. steelers88 - Jan 27, 2013 at 4:50 PM

    Why are they just using them for expedition they should use these and replace the jerseys that have the blue top and white pants.

  18. echech88 - Jan 27, 2013 at 4:57 PM

    Obviously the point of the contest was to produce something fun and different so let’s not act like a uniform worn at 2 spring training games is anything worth complaining about. Big fan of barrel man, fun contest.

  19. deadeyedesign23 - Jan 27, 2013 at 5:19 PM

    These are terrible but that’s what happens when you’re cheap and crowd source your design.

  20. thebadguyswon - Jan 27, 2013 at 5:43 PM

    Cool hat. Jersey is not original at all.

  21. natocoles - Jan 27, 2013 at 6:00 PM

    Anything involving Beer Barrel Man (if that’s his name) is automatically cool. And the jerseys look great, too – love the font! Cool hat, cool jersey, cool cool.

  22. ninthwardfriend - Jan 27, 2013 at 8:49 PM

    Love it!

  23. jarathen - Jan 28, 2013 at 8:51 AM

    I like the jersey, though as Uni Watch pointed out, the “E” being on both sides of the shirt will cause some visual dissonance. Not a huge fan of the hat. There were better cap designs.

    Hey! The TinMan got a hat! Woot!

    **Dorothy and Toto “like” this**
