OMGreds Roadtrip: Milwaukee

Miller Park

Miller Park

OMGReds headed up north to Miller Park this week to catch a few games while the Reds were in Milwaukee (or, “mill-e-wah-que” which is Algonquin for “the Good Land.” Thanks Alice Cooper!) The Brewers aren’t having the best season so far, but they still drew crowds around 35,000 for both of the games we saw. And, Brewers fans really know how to rock the pre-game tailgate!

Check out some photos from the trip here.

  1. “So, do you … come to Milwaukee often?”

    “Well, I’m a regular visitor here, but Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French explorers and missionaries were coming here as early as the late 1600s to trade with the Native Americans.”

    Great stuff, Paul. We are all very jealous of your trip! Can’t wait to see more.

    Great pictures! I lived in Milwaukee for 5 years before moving to Cincinnati, and Miller Park is a blast. You can actually tailgate before the game and when the roof is open, it’s a beautiful park. When it’s closed you feel like you’re watching baseball in a warehouse, though.

    I also got to be there for the first game in the stadium, and was in the stands during the all-star game when Bud Selig ended it in a tie. My friends and I threw beer bottles at Selig but managed to evade capture (mainly because everyone else was throwing them, too).

    Good times!
