Last month Amanda Rykoff noted that the Yankees’ “craft beer” section at Yankee Stadium was anything but. They’re continuing to have problems with basic beer identification, however, as now Patrick Wall of DNAInfoNY spied Goose Island listed as an “import.” Which, no, it’s not. It’s a Chicago beer. Wait, no it’s not. It’s actually brewed in New Hampshire. Beer is so confusing!
Or maybe the Yankees are just making a clever comment about the fact that Goose Island, once an independent brewery, is now owned by InBev, which is a Belgian company. But I don’t think that’s what’s really going on here. I think whoever runs Yankee Stadium’s beer concession just thinks non-Bud/non-Miller is an “import.” Which maybe worked on Applebee’s menus a decade ago, but even non-fancy, non-beer-snobby people and places typically get this right now.
What a shame. There is so much good beer to be had at ballparks these days yet the home of the marquee team in baseball is living in the beery dark ages.
