A Trip to Milwaukee-- Part 9: Sad Brewers, Real Expensive Beer

We were now settled into our seats and with the roof closed and ready for the game to begin.  It did and it wasn't too long before the Brewers were down 3-0 in the first.  Miami added four more in the third and now the Brewers faced a 7-0 deficit.  Just mighty poor playing in all aspects by Milwaukee.

I saw a beer vendor and saw what appeared to be $9 on a button he was wearing.  Nine Dollars for a beer! Even if it is a 16 ouncer.   I don't think so.  I just don't drink at those prices are actually anything much over $3.  I can remember writing in my journal back in 1961 after attending an April Cubs game that I couldn't drink at Wrigley Field anymore because they had raised the price of beer to $1.50.

And, then it got hot and muggy in the park.  The roof was closed and it seemed that the air conditioner only worked once in awhile   A nice blast of cool air would blow by.  Making it also uncomfortable was the fact our area was packed elbow to elbow.  Too bad they don't have personal fans.
