Baseball Is Back: The Best Ballpark Beers to Toast the Slow Return of America’s Beloved Sport

ESPN and other sports-centric channels have been pretty boring for the last few months. That’s because back in March, the NBA, NHL, and pretty much every league in the world either cancelled or put a pause on the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, Major League Baseball was in the midst of spring training with only a few weeks left until the season was set to begin. When all the other leagues shut down, so did baseball. But, after months of negotiating, and figuring out safety protocols, baseball is set to return on July 23 with a 60-game schedule (instead of the usual 162) and we couldn’t be more stoked.

Even though it’s highly unlikely that any fans will be in attendance at MLB games (or any other league) this season, that won’t stop us from recreating the game day experience at home. And no day at the (home) ballpark is complete without beer.

That’s why we decided to make a list of our favorite ballpark beers to toast to the return of America’s pastime and a little sliver of summer normalcy. Check them all out below.
