Kudos to the Phillies! The Phillies, in their new ballpark, have a bunch of local eating establishments...and a lot of local breweries are represented as well. Flying Fish, Victory, Yards, Manayunk, even Dock Street. Support your local breweries, that I can get behind. Granted, you will pay major league prices. Somewhere between $5.50 and $6.00 probably. Relative to quality at a major league park, that is still really good. The local breweries aren't going to make a ton of money, but it will be incredible advertising for them. I can only hope that people who drink the normal macrobeer will try some of good local beers.

I wonder how many other ballparks are supporting local establishments as much as the Phillies. I doubt it. The Eagles sure don't.

I'm not sure why the Phillies have decided to do this. But it will engender goodwill among local beer lovers. More power to them.
