In honor of the beloved farmers market, here are my favorite vintage shots from markets around the U.S. These are from The U.S. National Archives, continuing a weekly series featuring vintage pictures related to food.
I don’t know about you, but I grew up watching baseball. We would make popcorn and my dad would drink Budweiser out of cans. We’d talk about everything under the sun while we watched the Atlanta Braves play ball, including “the talk” with my dad. Yep, it happened between innings of a baseball game. Anyway, I never stopped liking baseball, but I did substitute local craft beers for Budweiser and “the talk” for smack talk. That’s why I found this chart that I stumbled across on Food Republic so interesting: the Washington Nationals have the most expensive beer in baseball. And, naturally, that is the ballpark I visit most.
Locally, we have the Flying Squirrels. These are super fun ball games, but the beer situation is even better. You can get a small draft of Yuengling or a bottle-shaped can of Coors, but skip those. Please. Instead, head to the local beer line where you can get a 32 oz. cup of local craft brew for $10. Last time we were there, we could choose from many options, including Starr Hill, Hardywood, and Center of the Universe. Totally worth it when you reference the above chart, right?
What is your go-to baseball beer? What ballparks have you visited? What is your favorite beer and baseball experience? Discuss.
